Follow the specific instructions below. Please do not write a generic paper. Instead, divide your project into three specific sections that clearly, concisely answer the following questions.
1) Introduction: (5 points)
Introduce your topic, describe the major/relevant issues and identify your research questions.
-What are you researching?
-What are the major/relevant themes/issues mentioned in what you’ve found?
-Why are you choosing to focus on it in this course?
-What are 3 questions you used to guide your research?
Minimum Requirements: > 3 images
2) Annotated Section: 5 sources total (15 points)
Cite and annotate (make notes about) 5 sources. List the source (author, date, title, journal, publisher, and URL if its a website), at least one source must be peer-reviewed!! Answer the following questions about each source:
-What is the source about, or what is the author’s point?
-How does this specific source contribute to your research? What did you learn from it?
Minimum Requirements: > 7 images total, at least 3 must be maps or spatial graphics and at least one of those must be your infographic or map that you made.
3) Interpretation and Conclusion: (15 Points)
Finally, summarize what all of these sources says about your topic. Try to use examples, analogies, etc. directed at these questions:
-Having completed your research, what have you learned?
-What does what you’ve learned have to do with themes, concepts or issues we’ve covered in class?
-What claims can you make about your topic and the Geographies of the Western World more generally? What are the limitations of your study?
Minimum Requirements: At least 1 graphic with a complete, well-written interpretation/conclusion.
-Make sure to address the questions for every section.
-Points will be deducted for assignments that are late (see Recitation Policy document on canvas) or with links that do not work.
-You must both produce the academic content and achieve the minimum design specifications to achieve credit for each section: > 11 images (at least 3 maps).
-Everything you submit must be in your own words. Plagiarism and quoting or using images without attribution will result in a zero for the section, and might lead to communication with the OSU Office of Student Conduct.
-Sloppy grammar, spelling, design and formatting detract from your total score.
-Please feel free to ask questions if you don’t understand the assignment.
