The Assignment

Library Presentations = 50 Points.

Presentations complete in one week.

You will pick a country and find a peer-reviewed, academic journal article (minimum 1,500 words) about any topic related to that country.

Only scholarly articles from peer-reviewed, academic journals will be accepted - not popular magazines, newspapers, encyclopedias or government publications.

The class will be instructed on what peer-reviewed, academic journals are, and how to use a library research database to find articles from those publications. Attendance at the library instruction session is mandatory.

You will make a 3 minute oral presentation to the class to explain what your article is about & in which journal the article appeared.

You will give the instructor the page with the MLA citation when you do the presentation.
