W riting P roject Writing Project 12.1 Given the need for improved writing skills in college students, and to respond to the call for "writing across the curriculum," we offer writing projects for each chapter. In Chapter 12, we suggest a 2-3 page written response to the food attitude questionnaire found on Handout 12.4. Recognizing the time involved in grading such writing projects, one alternative is occasionally assign "peer grading." Collect the papers, remove student names, and give each student a paper to grade. It helps to make their participation in peer grading part of the overall points for the writing project. This encourages a more thoughtful and responsible evaluation, as well as acknowledging and rewarding the additional work. The topic of hunger and eating disorders is especially relevant to college-age women and increasingly, men. This exercise is an interesting way to introduce these topics, along with doing a quick writing project. After students have completed the following questionnaire, ask them to compare their responses to 2-3 friends or family members. Their food attitude write up should include personal reactions and specific tie-ins to the text. Instructor’s Resource Guide              Chapter 12                                     Page   140

    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.
