. Cover Page – APA format. Be sure to include a running head, an informative title, your name, campus location, date, instructor name, and class section and period.
2. Introduction – Introduce the human body systems you are comparing. Which body systems are you discussing? What is their main role or roles in the body? End with a thesis statement building up to the following sections on the body systems. This thesis statement should be something that you can argue/support with the body of the paper. This can involve something your chosen body systems have in common (a common function they share or ways that they work together to keep us alive). Basically the thesis is a statement of what you are trying to show or convince the reader of with your paper. Include citations.
3. Choose two of the body systems listed above to research and write about in your paper. You will have the following subheadings for each body system you are writing about.
1. Anatomy – Describe the organs that make up the system in humans.
2. Physiology – Explain how the system works in humans. You must include some form of calculation or interpretation of numerical values in your description of physiology. For the nervous system, for example, you could discuss the different electrical charges involved in a nerve impulse. Just be sure, for whichever body systems you choose, to explain a component of the system that requires numerical values and/or calculations.
3. Disorders – Describe any disorders associated with the system, and how or if those disorders affect the homeostasis, behavior, and/or lifespan of humans.
4. Integration – How do your chosen body systems interact with each other? How are they dependent on each other for proper functioning of the body?
5. Conclusion – Treat this as a “back of the book cover” summary of your research paper. Challenge yourself to summarize the most important concepts in your paper in about 250 words.
6. Literature Cited – You all know my policy on plagiarism. Don’t do it or there will be consequences. This applies not only to plagiarism of another student’s work but also of a reference material. You must appropriately cite, in APA format, all material used. Be sure to use your own words in your paper. This will ensure that you understand the material to the best degree possible. Click here to see examples of how to create proper in-text and reference list citations in APA format. The “Library Resources” link under the “Helpful Resources” heading on the General Course Information page will be of help in finding scholarly sources for your paper.
Acceptable scholarly sources include: hardcopy books, eBooks (including your eText), scientific articles, scientific magazines (National Geographic, Scientific American, Popular Science, Discover Magazine, etc.).
1. Use the library’s online database to help you search for proper material. The Academic Search Complete is a large database full of research articles. There is also an eBook database for electronic textbooks
2. Unacceptable sources – Wikipedia, Ask.com, other non-science websites, really websites in general. I will deduct points for not using proper sources.
3. You must use in-text citations. It is not enough to list your literature cited at the end of the paper, you must also make notations in the body of your paper to show where each of your facts came from. Failure to properly cite within the body is a form of plagiarism.
