You will have three article assignments this semester. You will need to:
Locate an article on the Caribbean, not older than 30 days, that focuses on issues such as the environment/climate, culinary arts, economics, literature, visual or performing arts, culture, media, history, health/disease, law/criminal justice, women, children/youth, politics or education.
BE SURE TO READ WHAT YOUR CLASSMATES HAVE POSTED, PRIOR TO YOUR POSTING, TO AVOID A DOUBLE-POST ON THE SAME TOPIC/COUNTRY. For example, if your classmate posts about Puerto Rico and hurricanes, you should not post about Puerto Rico and hurricanes, even if from a different perspective.
If a classmate has already posted on a particular country/topic, do not re-post on this topic/country for the rest of the semester
After reading the article, provide a 300-500 word analysis which includes:
A synopsis of the article (who, what, when, where, why)
Why you chose the article – a substantive reason (not because “I liked it” or it “attracted” you)
The article’s relevance to the course – be very specific (site readings/films). Incorporate what you have learned in the course, thus far, into your article analysis.
Your opinion on the issue – no need to write I believe, I think or I feel – this is an opinion piece
Why ‘we’ should care – a reason other than we are human, or we are moral, or we should know. What would happen to the country, region, or world if this situation did not exist?
Regional or global implications related to the issue discussed
Pay attention to your grammar and re-read, aloud, to ensure that your argument is well articulated. You will lose points for using contractions and other obvious grammatical errors.
The country is Guadeloupe OR Colombia but it has to meet the criteria above
