UGS 302: Contemporary American Foreign Policy Problems - Mosser


In-Class Activity

To do on your own: Open your source and read through it for just a couple of minutes - you won't be able to read the whole thing (concentrate on any introduction and methods sections). Use Google if you need to to help you find out more about the article. Notice the structure of the article and any characteristics about the article that you want to discuss with your group.

To do with your group: Work together to answer the following questions.

  1. What would you call your source (or what type of source is your source)?
  2. Who wrote and published your source? Does/why does this matter?
  3. What do you know about how your article was created? Does/why does this matter?
  4. What information could you get from your source for your assignment? Which specialist might it be most useful for?
  5. If HIV/AIDS were your topic, would this article be appropriate to use in your assignment? Why or why not?
