Current Events

IV. CURRENT EVENTS NOTEBOOK—AFRICA DUE 12/2/16 Send to me as an attachment to an email. Each of you will keep an ELECTRONIC FILE in which you download internet articles from newspapers such as the New York Times or Washington Post (etc.) Pertaining to modern-day countries in Africa for ten weeks of the course. In this way you will begin to develop a general knowledge of current trends in the region. SOME SOURCES: Internet versions of any of the above or Internet sources New York Times, Washington Post Weekly, BBC, CNN, Africa Today, All Africa.com, African News Today, Al-Jazeera (English) Be sure you use an article not a commentary. An article begins with the name of the city in which the event takes place. FOR ALL ARTICLES YOU USE, BE SURE TO INDICATE THE COMPLETE CITATION--author, title of the article, publication name (which must be underlined or in Italics), date, and pages Type a short summary of the event represented in each of the ten articles. Then attempt an analysis. This is, why did you select the article, what is its importance, how does what we have studied in class help you to better understand the region or the events portrayed in the article? For example, if your article is about the events in Nigeria, we have studied about indigenous groups the Hausa, Yoruba, and Ibo, the period of colonization, and independence. This helps you understand the events because you know that African nations are not decolonized and about the clash between Islam and Christianity in the region. How does the information in the article reflect the history of the region that we are discussing. Your analysis should be one paragraph in length. The Best Layout: Article Number: _____ Title: “_________________” Summary Analysis Bibliographic citation for the Article (so I can access it) You must have 10 articles altogether. Number the articles in the upper right hand corner of the page with a large easy-to-read number. BEGIN NOW--DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE!!
