Newspaper

Your task this semester will be to “adopt” one of the newspapers listed below and to explore how
our geography course themes are being played out within another part of the world. Each of
these
newspapers has an English language version that is accessible on the Internet (addresses follow
the newspaper title). Once you decide upon a part of the world and a newspaper that interests you,
you are required to complete a
n
assignment that is due
near the end of the semester. START
EARLY, because assembling your portfolio of news stories will take some time and it will
require some thought to put your examples into the context of the course. You needn’t wait until
we cover a particular portion of
the world in class…feel free to browse the text in appropriate
chapters to get a sense of what some key regional issues might be in a part of the world you wish
to explore. The assignment has two parts and both are required for full credit:
PART ONE (30
points):
Assemble
a portfolio of
SIX
articles
from
the newspaper (provide
title
of article, date
,
and
copy
of article
) that you can argue are OUTSTANDING examples of timely issues/problems/events
shaping that particular region AND which fit
clearly
into o
ne or more of the course’s 5 regional
themes (1)Environmental Geography, 2)Population and Settlement, 3) Cultural Diversity, 4)
Geopolitical Setting, and 5) Social/Economic Setting).
Articles must be dated since
10
/1/
1
5
.
Choose articles that focus on stori
es within your region. (Don’t choose a Russian article that
reports on a typhoon in China).
FOR EACH
OF THE SIX
ARTICLE
S
,
also
note
which of the five
theme
s
(1 or more)
best fit
the topic (Environment, Population,
Culture,
etc)
and
write
a one

paragraph
summary of the
article
that makes such a connection clear. You may choose
all your articles dealing with one
theme
(for example, environmental issues or geopolitics)
OR
you can vary it to include examples
of any and all themes
. USE ONLY ONE
NEWSPAPER SOURCE.
You will have a
total of six
summary paragraphs and six articles to turn in.
PART TWO (30 points):
Answer the following
more general
discussion question (about two pages (typed) total):
How do recent issues
and events
in your region co
vered by the newspaper illustrate the
general processes of a) “DIVERSITY” and/or b) “GLOBALIZATION” within your
selected region?
You can emphasize
“diversity
” or “
globalization

in your discussion or you can explore how
both
are evident.
You may want to
revisit initial discussions of these ideas in the text (Chapter 1).
For this discussion, you may certainly rely on MORE than just the six articles used above
in
Part One.
…you may also use examples/events discussed elsewhere in these newspapers.
