Using this Page:  We will primarily use this page to compile and examine current events assignments. Assignments are due by Wednesday evening and should pertain to the regions or topics discussed since the last assignment. The articles you find should generally be short enough for people to have a chance to browse them, but long enough that we can learn from them. A partial-page Economist article is a good length. In order to receive credit for each assignment, you need to do one of the following two things: 1) write a short paragraph in the comments section of this page explaining why this article or piece caught your attention, and how you think it relates to our studies, or 2) write a short paragraph (or more, if you want) in the comments section of another student's post. You are of course free to do both; this forum is meant to be interactive, and you should feel free to comment however and wherever you want on the pbworks page.
