Hum Ecology & Environment week 3 discussion
Pick any one question and respond in an original discussion post by midnight, Day 4 of Week 3.
After the initial post, you must also provide substantive responses to at least 2 of your classmates’ posts and remain active on at least 2 additional days during Week 3.
1. Which one explains population growth more accurately between Thomas Malthus’s Population Theory and the Demographic Transition model? Explain your stance with supporting evidence. Next, how are population, economic growth, and environmental protection related? And based on the reasons behind the current population figures, how can nurses help address population issues? (USLOs 3.1, 3.2, 3.3)
2. Is there a connection between population growth and an area’s socioeconomic status, gender, race/ethnicity, and health outcomes? Explain with supporting evidence. What are the challenges posed by population growth to the environment and people? In what ways can nurse professionals contribute to addressing the effects of population growth? (USLOs 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4)
Each week, your discussion will be graded on a point scale. To successfully complete each weekly discussion assignment, you must address all items included in the discussion topic/question in the initial post and thoroughly respond to at least 2 peers on 2 different days.
25% of your final grade comes from discussion forum participation.
All posts should be thoughtful, add value to the discussion, and apply ideas, insights, or concepts from scholarly sources, assigned readings, lectures, or course materials in APA format. Your responses should consist of your informed input. One or two-sentence peer responses will not fetch full points. Do not merely recite the content you read in the unit; don’t simply give your opinion.
Your input should be in your own words (to avoid plagiarism), demonstrating your understanding and comprehension of the topic. Be sure to support all your posts (initial post + responses) with specific references to the assigned readings, lecture material, and other relevant research you find appropriate in APA format.
