Bio 1B, Section 129 Enhancement Assignment Due Date: Wednesday, April 26th —in discussion/lab ENRICHMENT ASSIGNMENT (25 pts) The purpose of this project is to 1) use the concepts studied in BIO 1B to think critically about a current topic in biology or to explore a topic that you are either interested in and/or don’t know anything about. The most important thing is to choose a topic that is of interest to you. The Berkeley campus is full of guest lecturers talking about current research issues. These guest speakers provide you with an opportunity to see what research in biology is current and how the concepts in Bio 1B are fundamental to researching these topics. The first two assignments on the list are the “default” assignments that require you to go to the Oakland Museum or the California Academy of Science. The third and fourth assignments are somewhat open for you to pursue topics of interest to you. If none seem appealing, you should talk with me to find one that does appeal to you (perhaps you want to incorporate photography, poetry, a newspaper article, etc.). No matter what, YOU HAVE TO RELATE IT TO SEVERAL COURSE CONCEPTS!!! Talk to me as you go for clarification, help, etc. Please note that all assignments must be 3-4 pages in length, 12 point font, and double spaced. 4 (or 5) Assignment Options (pick one) 1. Campus Lecture/ Seminar 2. Oakland Museum/ California Academy of Sciences assignment (must include ticket stub) 3. Botany of Your Desire 4. Field Trips/ On-Site Activism 5. Talk to me and we’ll figure out an assignment (but it will likely be very similar to one of the assignments below). 1. Campus Lecture Links to seminars series of interest can be found below. There are other relevant talks also occurring on campus. If you would like to attend a seminar that is not part of the series listed below, email me an announcement for the seminar and I will let you know if it is appropriate.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
