Option 1) Attend a seminar with Dave or Eli

Here is the Zoom Link to the Recording (https://washington.zoom.us/rec/play/QftLPD_6RsiWe1kGq202eEQSH9seR301P_jivjwvdprAwtgpnSjs0vHrIQ- PdpOfW4xOs7oIf_DkV4b5.wm7uXKd2w-D4BvUq) !
Option 2) Watch an environmental film/documentary and reflect on it through the lens of our course. Examples of appropriate environmental films are as follows: Gasland, Chasing Ice, More than Honey, After the Spill, Before the Flood, Chasing Coral, Forks over Knives, Damnation, Gather (ELI RECOMMENDS THIS!!). The film/documentary must be 40 minutes or longer and produced within the last decade (since 2010). Review the structural requirements for discussion ideas.
Option 3) Attend an academic presentation on an environmental topic, either virtually or in person (if your community is holding events and you feel safe attending one). The lecture cannot be a lecture from a class at UW, must be 40 minutes or longer, and must be produced within the last decade (since 2010) . What are you interested in? You can certainly find a lecture online.
2. Structural Requirements In your paper, please first describe the following information: (1) who spoke/directed, (2) the title of the lecture/film, (3) the location of the lecture/film, (4) the group sponsoring the talk/film, and (5) briefly summarize the main content.
Then, please discuss and analyze the lecture/film, including your opinion of it (e.g. do you agree with the presenter? Was the presentation well delivered? What did you learn?), and your analysis of why you

think those things? Specifically, you need to make two connections to material you are learning in Environment 100.
Your one page paper should have 1.5″ spacing and 1″ margins with Times New Roman font and 12 pt font size. Because concise writing is an important skill to develop, you must not write more than one page (we will only grade the first page).
Please refer to the grading rubric below for the evaluation criteria of this paper.
You must upload your paper as a word document. If you do not have Microsoft Word, this program is free to UW students and can be downloaded here: https://www.washington.edu/itconnect/wares/uware/microsoft/microsoft-office-365-proplus- for-uw-students/ (https://www.washington.edu/itconnect/wares/uware/microsoft/microsoft-office-365- proplus-for-uw-students/)
3. Academic Integrity/ Plagiarism Detection Check Academic Integrity page to make sure that your paper does not violate any plagiarism policies set by the University.
We use “SimCheck” by Turnitin to detect plagiarism in assignments. SimCheck is a web-based system that allows student papers to be submitted and checked for plagiarism. SimCheck compares student papers with sources available on the Internet, select commercial article databases, and papers submitted at UW or other institutions using Turnitin. This is also a tool for you. When you submit your paper online, you will see your SimCheck”similarity score.” This score tells you how much of your paper is similar to other sources. If your score is more than 10%, you may have used someone else’s words without properly citing them. You can use SimCheck to see why the score is high – to see portions of your paper that may have been found somewhere else.
In order for SimCheck to correctly generate a similarity percentage report, please use the subheading “Works Cited” or “References” before your list of sources, so that section will not be screened.
If you turn in a paper with a similarity score higher than 10% and want to correct it, email your TA immediately and let them know. Then make the necessary changes and re-submit as soon as possible. If you do not correct the problem, you will be reported to the committee on academic misconduct. You can read more about the software on the UW IT Connect webpage (https://itconnect.uw.edu/learn/tools/canvas/canvas-help-for-instructors/assignments-grading/vericite/) .
You will be reported to the committee on academic misconduct for violations of academic integrity. If the committee finds you guilty, you will receive a zero on the exam or have the opportunity to re-write the paper for up to 50% possible points.
