America Transformed - Native Viewpoints on 19th Century Westward Expansion
Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating
0.0 stars

The maps in this map set were created predominantly by Euro-American cartographers, and published by government agencies or commercial profit-seeking companies. They promote Euro-American culture and perpetuate certain interpretations of history. Considering the inherent power dynamics helps us understand that this was at the expense of other points of view – especially of Indigenous peoples, those that were enslaved, and immigrant laborers, among many others. It is important to bear in mind how these documents reveal or conceal the ways people and communities were dispossessed, exploited, and annihilated. Unseen here but equally vital are stories of heroic resilience, resistance, and cultural preservation. The purpose of the following exercise is to examine the perspective of colonial maps and their influence on our understanding of history. Students will view maps and captions from the America Transformed: Mapping the 19th Century exhibit and their corresponding Native viewpoints.

Anatomy and Physiology Preparatory Course Textbook [2nd Edition]
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The goal of this preparatory textbook is to give students a chance to familiarize with some terms and some basic concepts they will find in an Anatomy and Physiology course. Organization and functioning of the human organism are generally presented starting from the simplest building blocks, and then moving into levels of increasing complexity. This textbook follows the same presentation. It starts introducing the concept of homeostasis, then covers the chemical level, and later on a basic introduction to cellular level, organ level, and organ system levels. This second edition incorporates a module on protein synthesis, and a complementary base pairing learning objective as requested by many students. This edition also adds audio for all learning objectives. Audio Icon by Kieselli form Pixabay. The textbook is organized in five UNITS, divided into sixteen MODULES covering a total of fifty-two Learning Objectives. There is a short self-assessment at the end of each learning objective.
