Research modern day issues using the articles in the research guide and use CultureGrams and World Geography and Culture to gain information about modern day life in four of the following countries (one from each group) that we have studied at some point during the year. Then you will write a narrative in which you journey through each of these countries to incorporate the information you gained that includes interactive media.
Part I: Use CultureGrams to find information about each cultural component in each of your countries (all four countries). Record at least two facts for each component.
Part II: For each of the four countries you are researching, choose three articles from Mr. Vallee’s website and summarize the articles and explain them in terms of the cultural components above (at least three cultural components per article).
Honors: Choose one additional article for each country and repeat the above process. These articles should demonstrate 1. that you have an understanding of issues of concern from each country; 2. that you clearly chose these articles thoughtfully; 3. that you understand how to judge the quality of an article--you choose reliable sources, you choose articles with sophisticated vocabulary that tackle potentially complex issues.
