Newspaper Article Assignment: There are many critical international issues happening in the world today that are directly related to historical events or eras weve discussed in this class. For this assignment you must find a recent news article (from a credible source about an UNRELATED current event (written in 2020) and write a paper about how the 2020 event relates to an event or era discussed in this class. This is not an informative paper, but rather you must use critical thinking to discuss how the current event is related to the government as weve discussed in class and how it differs. Compare and contrast the present with the course topic using course readings, lectures, and outside sources, if necessary, to supplement your paper. Any supplemental sources should not be the main focus of your paper; your analysis of the newspaper article chosen is. *** Your answer must be at least 5 full pages (no less), typed, DOUBLE SPACED, and 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins. You will be graded on content, grammar, punctuation, and following directions. *** *** Guidelines: Find an article from a credible source avoid 24-hour news channels (Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, etc.) Also, do not use op-eds (opinion pieces), as they are not investigative journalism. Look at sources like the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, BBC, Al Jazeera, France24, etc. Be specific. I want you to really think about your articles and your responses to them and how they fit into our course. Avoid replacing arguments with examples. Use examples to illustrate a general claim, not as a replacement for them. Examples by themselves tend toward selection bias and hasty generalizations. I am interested in content, not clever rhetorical flourish. Thus, avoid filler material DO NOT USE BLOCK QUOTES FROM THE ARTICLES OR READINGS. Direct quotes should be no longer than 1 sentence, MAXIMUM. IF YOU DO NOT CITE, EVEN WHEN YOU PARAPHRASE, IT WILL BE CONSIDERED PLAGIARISM. PLAGIARIZED PAPERS WILL BE PENALIED EITHER BY AN F ON THE PAPER OR THE COURSE AND WILL BE REPORTED TO THE DEAN. PROOFREAD YOUR PAPER. You will be marked off for typos, punctuation errors, and/or major disorganization. The heading of your paper should be your name ONLY. 12-point Times New Roman font Double-spaced 1-inch margins all around CITE EVERYTHING. The paper is to be 5 pages long. Not less (No cover page). This paper must be written specifically for THIS CLASS. Any papers submitted from previous courses will automatically receive an F. Topics we have covered have been about anything with the coronavirus, presidential election, debates, anything with the government. Its a National American Government class.
