Current Event Assignments

Current Event Assignments

Throughout the course of the semester, each student is expected to submit 2 Current Event Assignments. The due dates for each current event assignment are listed in your syllabus, in the assignments page on canvas, and on the modules. For each Current Event Assignment, you should find a current event that relates to the course material. This current event can be a news article (such as from the New York Times, Tampa Bay Times, or Huffington Post), popular media article (such as from Buzzfeed or Jezebel), advertisement, or a publicly available video, and must be CURRENT (i.e. published in 2019 or later). Current events are NOT informational articles on government health websites (e.g. going to the World Health Organization website and finding an article on how to prevent Zika is NOT a current event; instead, that would be a reference you could use from a reputable government/agency website. You would still need to find a current event from which to base your assignment on).

The written product will consist of:

· A brief summary of your current event (not more than approximately ½ page)

· A description of how the assigned material relates to the current event; In the description of how the assigned material relates to the current event you should include specific theories, definitions, and concepts.

· A brief conclusion. Each Current Event Assignment should be at least 2 pages, but no more than 3 pages long, excluding the cover sheet and references page. Please do not exceed the page limit. Use one-inch margins, 12-point font, and double space your text. For this assignment, do not use direct quotes from the current event. Upload your assignment through Canvas as a Word attachment. Assignments submitted in other formats will receive a 0.

Current Event Assignment #1

Current Event Assignment #1 should be based on a specific theory, definition or concept from any of the following lectures: Health and Behavior: The Big Picture, Health Issues and Behavior, and Introduction to Community.

For current event 1, such theories, definitions, or concepts could include (but are not limited to) relating a current event to the ecological model, social determinants of health, and community health. Even though the lectures include oral hygiene, obesity, youth violence, and other topics, you should not write your assignment on these topics (unless your current event also relates to one of academic concepts described in the lectures); these health concerns were merely used as examples within the lectures and do not represent a specific theory, definition, or concept from the lectures.
