Your first step is to select one of these three topics to use for your project. The topic you choose will be used for all of your journal responses, your final paper, and your final presentation.
As you decide which of the three topics you would like to use for your project, remember that you will be using this topic as a guide as you select your articles that relate to the concepts within each module. So, select the one that you are most interested in. For example, if you select “The Environment” as your topic, for this journal assignment, you will find two articles that discuss the role the American Government has on the environment.
Health and Human Services rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine
The Budget Deficit
Step 2: Find two articles from and approved source
Once you have selected your topic find one article from each of the approved columns of sources that discuss your topic and the module focus. You will want one article from a liberal learning source and another article from a conservative learning source. Ideally, these articles will discuss similar topics.
Approved Conservative Leaning Sources
The Washington Post
The New York Times
The Wall Street Journal
The Washington Times
New York Post
Create a document that you will use for each journal response assignment. You will keep adding to this document and upload the newest version.
