Multiculturalism in the News – Assignment Overview





What to Do/Submit?

Week 1 N/A N/A Week 2 N/A N/A Week 3 News Stories Each team member will:

1- select one news story relevant to multicultural conflict

2- submit a one-paragraph summary of the selected news story

3-one-paragraph of explaining how that particular news story

illustrates a multicultural conflict (e.g. identify the cultural conflict

and the groups involved)

(note then that each person will write two paragraphs: one for the

summary and another for the explanation of the multicultural



You will submit all of your news stories in a single document. If

there are 5 members in your team, the document should have 5

different news stories.


Please note that this is a pre-selection. For next week, you will select

one of these as the news story for your project.



Week 4 Thesis statement

and annotated


Choose one news story from the News Stories for Multiculturalism

in the News assignment, due in Week Three, to use for the final team

project due in Week Six.

Gain instructor approval for the selected news story.

Develop an annotated bibliography. Each team member must list a

minimum of two sources from peer-reviewed journals that relate to

the news story.

Write a clearly worded thesis statement of no more than 350 to 700

words for the Multiculturalism in the News assignment due in Week


Format your annotated bibliography and thesis statement according

to APA guidelines.

Read the instructions above. Please note that you need to include

both a thesis statement and an Annotated Bibliography. The

instructions specify that the thesis statement should not be longer

than 350 to 700 words. This somewhat contradicts the thesis

generator application which presents the thesis statement as a

sentence (which we assume will be much less than 350 words), thus

a much shorter assignment. However, I want you to include, along

your thesis statement a brief paragraph in which you specify and

explain the multicultural conflict. That is, providing a rationale for

why there is a multicultural conflict. See the examples of

multicultural conflict which I posted in the announcements section. I

wrote a brief paragraph for each in which I explain the multicultural

conflict. That is exactly what you need to do. Add, after your thesis



statement (one sentence as explained in the thesis generator) a brief

paragraph explaining the multicultural conflict; that is, the perceived

or real incompatibility of values, beliefs, and/or behavioral

expectations between two different cultural or social groups.

Regarding the Annotated Bibliography, please note that UOP

provides an example of that as well. Several sentences (brief

paragraph) which briefly summarizes the article or chapter as it

relates to the topic in question.


Week 5 Outline for Final

This article discusses a study conducted by the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate

School of Education. Sixteen massive open online courses, or MOOCs, were observed

to determine student retention. Student completion of the courses was unremarkable.

Several differing variables may have contributed to the outcomes of each course based

on topic, length of course, student nationality, and so on. More studies on how MOOCs

are administered and conducted must be made.

The research in this study focused on motivating factors for non-traditional, degree-

The study presented here attempts to address concerns over the education outcomes for

nontraditional students when using social integration. The authors explore the impact of

IT and informal faculty-student interaction. Their results suggest that IT may have a

positive effect on student psychological well-being and academic performance.

In this TEDTalk, Microsoft founder and philanthropist Bill Gates discusses some ways

to combat problems in our world. He addresses the lack of support for malaria

elimination in struggling countries and how it affects their ability to thrive. He then

compares this struggle to that of education. There is an inequality with how people

survive physically and mentally in this world. He believes that success hinges on

applying the right tools and paying attention to all who are affected.
