Course Title:Biotic Responses to Climate Change in the Ocean
The response of populations to environmental change can include change in distribution, physiological and behavioral acclimation, or evolutionary change. This class will focus on climate change and marine populations for examples of these responses. Evaluation is primarily through written assignments. Instruction on technical writing and comprehension included.
Athena Title:Biotic Responses to Climate
Nontraditional Format:This version of the course will be taught as writing intensive, which means that the course will include substantial and ongoing writing assignments that a) relate clearly to course learning; b) teach the communication values of a discipline—for example, its practices of argument, evidence, credibility, and format; and c) prepare students for further writing in their academic work, in graduate school, and in professional life. The written assignments will result in a significant and diverse body of written work (the equivalent of 6000 words or 25 pages) and the instructor (and/or the teaching assistant assigned to the course) will be closely involved in student writing, providing opportunities for feedback and substantive revision.
