Anthropology 101 Reading Synthesis



Requirements and Guidelines

The first portion of this assignment is to summarize IN YOUR OWN WORDS two chapters in Race, Monogamy, and Other Lies They Told You. You may use direct quotes from the text, but please cite properly (see below.) DO NOT fill up your paper with large blocks of text from either Fuentes or another source to occupy more space and lessen your workload. You will receive a substantial point deduction if there is not a significant amount of writing executed through your voice. The chapters you may choose from include:

Chapter 1, “Myths about Human Nature Are Powerful – And Misleading”

Chapter 3, “Evolution Is Important – but May Not Be What We Think”

Chapter 4, “The Myth of Race”

Chapter 5, “Myths About Aggression
Chapter 6, “Myths About Sex”

Following each chapter summary, you are required to synthesize the material in Fuentes’ text with class discussion, media viewings, and/or other assigned readings. For each of the two chapter summaries, you must use at least ONE additional CITABLE (i.e. written or filmic) source to synthesize with the information covered in the chapter. You may use Our Origins as one of your additional sources. You should, therefore, utilize at least 2 additional sources in the entirety of your paper.

Papers are to be submitted through (Stand by for further details regarding codes.) Your paper must be submitted by 12:00 pm on Wednesday, December 13. NO LATE PAPERS WILL BE ACCEPTED!
