Writing Assignment #3: Scientists Writing for Students – Textbook Passage on Cultural Evolution (4 – 6 pp.)
You have been asked to write a chapter section for a college evolution textbook on the advent of “Cultural Evolution”. While the primary goal is to provide an overview of research on this topic, you may also choose to address a particular question about culture, such as, “Is culture just a human phenomenon?” Since this is an instructional writing piece, scientific terminology should be given special attention (e.g. bold type, and definitions provided in parentheses when terms are introduced).
Learning Goals: Developing skill in instructional writing, clear organization of topics within a broader work, appropriately introducing and defining scientific terminology, properly citing references.
