Unit 8: Discussion 2


The two topics that you are dealing with are two highly emotionally charged subjects.  Obviously it is impossible to cover these topics sufficiently in just one unit.  Hopefully the readings, questions, and homework will provide you with a basis of knowledge upon which you can expand.

You are required to post your initial answers morning; your comments on the postings of your classmates are due on Sunday at midnight.  Please be sure that your comments to peers are substantive; do not simply write "I disagree"; if you disagree, go on to explain your comment and add your own insights. All initial and follow-up responses require research and appropriate citations. You should have a minimum of two postings (one initial and one/more follow-up response/s) for each thread.

The following rubric will be used to score your discussion postings:

0-3 points

Only minimal response given with no elaboration OR failed to complete follow-up postings

4-7 points

Basic response and follow-up posting; all were clear and relevant, but needed more detail.

8-10 points

All responses were elaborated, clear, and detailed; complete responses and follow-up postings.

Discussion Topic

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Almost 700,000 people die of heart disease in the U.S. each year. Heart disease is a term that includes several more specific heart conditions, although the most common heart disease in the United States is coronary heart disease, which can lead to heart attacks.

·         What factors in the Industrial Age caused the rate of heart disease to grow, particularly in the mid-20th century?

·         Why is it so common today?

Make sure that you use sources for BOTH time frames (20th century and present day). Make good use of your textbook and other sources. Provide complete citations for these sources and use direct quotes sparingly.
