News Article on Africa
Each student will write two (2-4 page) papers on a news article. Students should find a recent article and establish a question about information in the article that they want to learn more historical context about. Based on the question, students should find two peer-reviewed academic sources (not Wikipedia) that discuss the history related to their question. Class sources may be used but the news article and at least one source must come from outside class. Students must use at least three sources for their paper.
