analyses of current events, relating the events to some class material that we have discussed this semester. In your written analysis, include:
1. A short paragraph summarizing the issue in the current event. Here, you should focus on giving the reader information about your event.
2. A link to the credible news source that you used to get your information; include a sentence or two about WHY this is a credible source. It is not enough to state that ‘this news source is credible because it’s popular’ – instead, give a sentence or two about why this is a credible source to use to get news.
3. A summary of the class material you are using in the assignment – as if you were teaching it to someone new. Here, your goal is to teach the material to the reader. So, for example, if you’re trying your example to a jurisprudential approach to the law, you might give the definition of a jurisprudential approach and then talk a bit about what it means to define something this way.
4. A summary of the analysis/evaluation of the issue as it relates to the class material – again, as if you were teaching it to someone new. Here, your goal is to explicitly tie the event to the course material – show the reader how your event is an example of the course material.
