2018 Summer Online – Politics 212: International Relations
Week 6 – July 30: Your Own Papers
Welcome to the part of the course where you choose your own area of inquiry. The details of the paper requirements are on our facebook group page, under Files > Paper Instructions. Notice that instead of an in-class presentation, you’ll post a short video on our facebook page. Choose a topic relevant to our course – but that is a very wide umbrella of topics.
You and I should have already discussed your paper topic – in person, by email, fb msg, etc.
1 – by this Thursday, August 2, you should post here approx 100 words on your paper topic.
2 – by next Wednesday, August 8, you should email your paper to me,
3 – by next Thursday, August 9, you should post a one- to two-minute video (and definitely not more than three minutes) to our facebook group – what your paper question was, and what you learned, and why it was interesting, etc. Make us smart.
Ok, everyone – this is the part that you do yourself – pursue something you’re curious about, really dig into it, and deliver a showcase paper, something you can use as a short writing sample for future jobs, internships, etc.
***By Friday noon EDT, August 10, is the last time I can accept all of you posts and replies, this paper, and your video on fb and any other material.
Ok, big finish – write a great paper!
