- Review global news and find an article that discusses a relationship between a microorganism/virus and the health of another animal (which may include humans! – this may include positive or negative impacts)
- Review posts already made by your peers. Repeat topics will not count, so make sure that you do not choose a topic your peers have discussed already. ** You may Post the first 2 steps (One sentence description of the issue and APA citation) to claim so that someone else does not post a similar topic while you are preparing your post. You can then go to your original post, edit it, and add the remaining parts of your post.
- Your final discussion post should be numbered or bulleted and include each of these sections in order:
- One sentence description of the relationship between the microorganisms/virus and the animal.
- APA citation of the article your read
- Description of the organism or virus discussed in the article
- Summary of the relationship, the organisms that are affected, and the impact of the microorganism/virus
- If possible, provide steps taken to mitigate or improve the relationship
