Forensic Biology unit 2 discussion board 2
The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.
At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.
The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.
The bones of the face, or skull as it is sometimes referred to, are there for the purpose of protecting and supporting the entrance to the digestive system and the respiratory system. These bones also provide sites for the attachment of muscles that control the mouth, eyes, scalp, and lower jaw. The bones and muscles of the face and head are all needed by forensics teams to recreate what was once the face of an individual. This is known as facial reconstruction. The skull provides clues to the personal appearance. Facial reconstruction can put a name on an unidentified body in a modern forensic case.
- In 4â€“6 paragraphs, address the following:
- Why do you think facial reconstruction is important to a crime scene? Explain.
- What do you think are the most significant challenges associated with facial reconstruction? Explain.
- What is the most important historical contribution to the study of facial reconstruction? Why?
- What role do you think technology has played in improving facial reconstruction techniques? Provide an example to support your argument.
- Post a new topic to the Discussion Board that contains your responses to the above questions.
- Comment on at least 2 other students’ posts.
