Find a newspaper or magazine article that is related to course material. The article must be current (since June of 2016) from a legitimate source with a solid reputation (online articles are OK as long as the source is considered legitimate i.e. New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Economist Magazine…). Write a review of the article and then discuss how it is related to the class material. Why should we care about the article? How does it relate to our discussions in class or discussion section?
The essay needs to be typed, double-spaced, in times new roman font, with a font size 12 in order to be graded. It needs to be one page with one inch margins in order to be graded (a second page will not be graded). Please attach the article that is reviewed to your paper. Either copy/paste it after your review or provide a direct link to the article. A title is not necessary.
The grades will range from 0 to 3 points toward your final course score. A one point essay will give a thorough review of the article, a two point essay will give a thorough review of the article and do an adequate job relating the article to class material, and a three point essay will do a thorough review of the article and do a nice job applying the article to class material.
