please read instruction thoroughly! I will post the reply as soon as you complete this. Then I will write back to you and show you 2 classmates that will need the response.Thanks.
I hope you enjoyed reading this book!
As I mentioned in the Guideline document there are so many aspects of this book we can discuss. 
Choose one of the questions below and write a knowledgeable response, that demonstrates you read the book and considered the information presented. Your response must be at least 14 sentences and no longer than 20. ( worth up to 14 points for a well-written and informative post)
Respond to at least TWO other peoples posts in a knowledgeable way; each post must be at least 6 sentences long and be more than an agreement statement, meaning you need to include some substance in your response, such as other information you learned from the book that you didn’t already state in your original post (3 points for each response).
Do NOT repeat information in your replies that someone else has already posted (you must make your initial post before you see other people’s posts). Read other posts/replies before responding to others. You will be DOCKED points if you repeat information. 
Use proper grammar and punctuation in your posts. Remember this is an upper division college course and your writing needs to reflect this standing. You will be DOCKED points for grammatical errors/sloppiness. I highly encourage everyone to write their answers in a word doc and use spelling and grammar check and then copy and paste it into the discussion post. Always proofread your work.
Question Choices: ONLY CHOOSE ONE

In this assignment, you will examine how anthropologists from two different subfields can study evolution (change over time).

Purpose:
Anthropologists study many different aspects of humanity in order to fully understand the diversity of the human species. Remember, evolution can apply to both physical and societal changes, so things like language and customs can evolve just as much as bodies and brains. In this assignment, you will examine how anthropologists from two different subfields can study evolution (change over time). Be sure you download the attached worksheet, fill it out, and submit it. Other formats (for example, a paper, will not be accepted)
Directions:
In the table that is provided, type your answers to these questions:
Explain what physical anthropology is, and how physical anthropologists study evolution. Find at least one scholarly source that identifies a specific research project in which physical anthropologists study evolution (e.g. the Human Genome Project- conduct your own original research, do not use this example). Describe the research project and its significance in our understanding of evolution.
Choose a second subfield of anthropology (cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, or archaeology). Explain what the second subfield focuses on, and how anthropologists in this subfield study evolution. Find at least one scholarly source that identifies a specific research project in which anthropologist from this subfield study evolution. For example, an archaeologist may look at how tools have changed through time, and what has caused that change (conduct your own original research, do not use this example). Describe the research project and its significance in our understanding of evolution.
Compare and contrast how physical anthropologists and anthropologists in the subfield you chose study evolution.

Essays should be between 300-500 words

Choose any two readings between the start of the semester to today and write a short essay summarizing them and discussing how they relate to each other. You may discuss how they differ, what they agree on, or how the concepts they discuss influence each other. For example, if you choose to examine Myth & Meaning by Levi-Strauss and Magic, Science & Religion by Malinowski, you could say how both are framing the relationship between knowledge production and social organization, and how science differs from mythology in how power is distributed across society.

For this assignment, you will work with the other members of your group to answer the questions articulated in your anthropometry project proposal. This involves analyzing our anthropometry dataset using the statistical tools outlined in the Instructions for Analyzing Data in Microsoft Excel.
Your project is due via Canvas at 11:59 PM on Monday, 08/15. Each group will submit a write-up of at least four double-spaced pages that details (1) which variables you chose to examine, (2) which questions you asked, (3) which statistical tests you performed in MS Excel in attempting to answer those questions, (4) the results of your analyses (including at least one graph), and (5) your interpretation of the results (e.g., If you obtain a result that does not accord with an idea we have discussed in class, think of some reasons that might account for the discrepancy). No outside research or bibliography is required.

Learning Goal: I’m working on a anthropology writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
Book Review
For this assignment, you will be writing a 3 page book review, using an ethnography from the selected list below. The book review should be written as an overview of the contents, ideas, and concepts that the anthropologist is researching within the ethnography.
Book choices
You choices of books are limited to the following. All of these are free to read or download from this page:
Chagnon, Napoleon. 2013. Yąnomamö. 6th edition. Belmont, CA: Wadsworth Cengage Learning.
Eder. James F. 2009. Migrants to the Coasts: Livelihood, Resource, Management, and Global Change in the Philippines. Belmont, CA: Wadsworth Cengage Learning.
Holmes-Eber, Paula. 2003. Daughters of Tunis: Women, Family, and Networks in a Muslim City. Boulder, CO: Westview Press.
Lee, Richard B. 2013. The Dobe Ju/’hoansi. 4th edition. Belmont, CA: Wadsworth Cengage Learning.
Sikkink, Lynn. 2010. New Cures, Old Medicines: Women and the Commercialization of Traditional Medicine in Bolivia. Belmont, CA: Wadsworth Cengage Learning.
Zanca, Russell, 2011. Life in an Uzbek Muslim Village: Cotton Farming after Communism. Belmont, CA: Wadsworth Cengage Learning.
Structuring your review
A book review is a condensed presentation of a book’s contents, ideas, and concepts. Book reviews will be often read by a person who has not or may not ever read the book, so this will their opportunity to learn more about it. As the book review writer, your job is to identify the most important points and ideas to write about. In this case, the books in question are ethnographies, the main product that cultural anthropologists produce based upon their ethnographic research. So, you should be focusing on the main points, important concepts, and their contributions to knowledge and theory in anthropology.
The following is a suggestion on how to structure your review. The suggestions are general and applicable to writing papers and essays for any subject, but specific here because of the very limited page numbers of your assignment. Your readers (myself included) will appreciate organization, clarity, and focus in your writing, and by structuring your review in the following manner, you will have a well-conceived book review.
There are three main sections for a review: Introduction, Body, and Conclusion. The Introduction is where you briefly introduce the book, an overview of its contents, and major conclusions. This section should be around one paragraph long. The next and largest section is the Body. The Body of your review is where you will discuss the contents of the book. It may be tempting to go chapter by chapter, but it will be more fruitful if you try to write about the major themes that the author is tackling. You can use examples from the text to illustrate those themes. This section should be around 2-2.5 pages long. The final section is the Conclusion. Now would be the time to include criticism, your own questions or insights. You can also include any outside sources should you wish. Close the review with any final remarks, conclusions, lingering questions, and so on. This section should be around 2 to 3 paragraphs long.
Formatting
The format of the completed review should be as follows:
Your name, course and section number in top right corner, single spaced
1-inch margins on all sides
10 to 12 pt. font and double-spaced for the text
3 pages minimum
Citations and sources should be in MLA or APA styles
Submit the review in pdf, doc, or docx formats only!
Turnitin plagiarism checker
This assignment will be using Turnitin plagiarism tool to check for plagiarism; you can see your similarity score once you submit your assignment. You will have the opportunity to revise your submission before the due date if your similarity score is high. If you see a score over 15%, I strongly suggest you review and revise your paper to check for proper citation and citing your sources correctly, then submit it again.
Any use of another person’s ideas or words, taken directly or paraphrased, without citing the source is plagiarism. This includes taking material from the Internet without citing the website. If you are unsure as to proper citation methods or have any questions or doubts, please contact me. Plagiarism and other forms of cheating will not be tolerated and will result in failure of the course and possible expulsion from this institution. For more information: Citing Sources and Avoiding Plagiarism (Links to an external site.).
Grading and feedback
The grading rubric for this assignment can be found below. Please pay special attention to this rubric, as these are the criteria that you will be graded upon for this assignment. I will use this rubric to grade your book review, and provide feedback as comments and suggestions in the Grades section of Canvas.

Description: This task requires you to outline FOUR key concepts from the course

Description: This task requires you to outline FOUR key concepts from the course
You MUST choose from the following list of concepts:
Illness
Limit situations
Medicalization
Biomedicine
Socialization
Cartesian dualism
Symbolism
Ritual
Phenomenology
Therapeutic Emplotment
Illness Narrative
Details:
Choose four concepts from the list above. For each concept give a definition or outline of the concept USING YOUR OWN WORDS. Give two examples of the concept in use; One example drawn from literature in the course or from your own reading and one from your own experience.
For example you might describe the medicalization of pregnancy in a specific context or give an example of chronic illness as a limit situation — keep it brief, this doesn’t need to be an argument, only a demonstration that you understand the concept.
Devote roughly 250 words per concept.
When describing your own experience, you should of course use the first person perspective — if you’re not sure how to do this, or if using first person voice is new to you in an academic context, absorb and imitate the writing styles of those found in the course — Havi Carel’s ‘Illness: the Cry of the flesh’ is a good place to start. Try to imitate the ethnographic description of readings we have looked at so far and which we explored in the first lecture — when outlining your own experience, you are essentially doing ethnographic description of your own life.
You should use atleast ONE reference per concept (four references for the task in total).
