American Political Development: Book Review

American Political Development Book Review

Each student will write a book review of Stephen Skowronek’s Presidential Leadership in Political Time.

Overall, the review should answer the following questions: What is the author’s main argument? How do they prove their argument? What evidence do they use? Do you agree with the author’s argument? Why or why not? What does the author overlook/fail to consider?

Book reviews can be found in most academic journals. You should take a look at these, though bear in mind that not all of these, maybe over half, will be suitable models for you.

There are two problems with book reviews in journals. First, many simply reflect the reviewer’s prejudices – they tell you more about the reviewer than the book. Second, many are technical….

Describe Factors That Might Have Influenced Pharmacokinetic And Pharmacodynamic Processes Of The Patient You Identified

Two basic physiological concepts

In our Lab Report Assignment, you will consider how different systems may interact and cause changes in an organism’s physiology. While these reports will be based on hypothetical experiments of your own creation, accurate physiological principles and scientific ethics must be adhered to. 

Consider the different physiological concepts we cover each week in the course.  Select two basic physiological concepts from two separate weeks that interest you!

1. Design an experiment/set of experiments that you could conduct to further explore how these physiological concepts interact with each other.  Simple, straight forward experiments usually yield straight forward figures and hypothesizes… which is what you want!

2. Communicate what your hypothesized outcomes are (as long as your thinking has solid physiological principles and references behind it, there’s no wrong answer).
