NACLA Report on Americas

YOU ARE TO READ A CURRENT NEWS ARTICLE ABOUT THE CARIBBEAN OR CENTRAL AMERICA FROM THE WEBSITE FOR THE NORTH AMERICAN CONGRESS OF LATIN AMERICA (NACLA) AND SUBMIT A SHORT REVIEW.

PLEASE USE BOTH A TITLE PAGE AND A WORKS CITED PAGE (NEITHER OF THESE PAGES COUNT TOWARD YOUR 3-4 PAGES OF TEXT). THE 3 NACLA REPORTS THAT YOU SUBMIT WILL COUNT AS A COMBINED 20% TOWARD YOUR FINAL GRADE. IN YOUR WORKS CITED PAGE, COMPOSE YOUR ARTICLE ENTRY IN A FORMAT LIKE THIS:

JENNIFER A. CÁRCAMO, “POETS AND PROPHETS OF RESISTANCE: INTELLECTUALS AND THE ORIGINS OF EL SALVADOR’S CIVIL WAR,” NACLA REPORT ON THE AMERICAS WEBSITE (AUGUST 6, 2020).

IN TERMS OF THE CONTENT OF EACH REPORT, I AM LOOKING FOR TWO MAIN POINTS OF DISCUSSION. FIRST, YOU SHOULD DEVOTE THE FIRST HALF OF THE REPORT TO A SUMMARY OF THE MAIN POINTS IN THE ARTICLE THAT YOU SELECTED. TO HELP YOU TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE, CONSIDER SOME OF THESE QUESTIONS: WHAT IS THE MAIN ISSUE BEING DISCUSSED? (I.E. IMMIGRATION, ELECTIONS, EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT, WOMEN’S ISSUES, CRIME, ETC.) WHO ARE THE MAIN PERSONALITIES MENTIONED IN THE ARTICLE? (I.E. ENRIQUE PEÑA NIETO, ANDRES MANUEL LOPEZ OBRADOR, PRESIDENT TRUMP, ETC.) HOW DOES THE ISSUE AFFECT THE PEOPLE OF THE COUNTRY MENTIONED IN THE ARTICLE? DOES THE ISSUE HAVE ANY CONNECTION WITH UNITED STATES INTERESTS? WHAT DO YOU THINK COULD BE THE BEST SOLUTION TO RESOLVE THIS PROBLEM?

AND FOR THE SECOND POINT OF DISCUSSION, PLEASE ANALYZE THE ARTICLE THAT YOU SELECTED AND PRESENT YOUR POINT OF VIEW ON THE STORY. FOR EXAMPLE, HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE STORY? HOW DID THIS ARTICLE CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR UNDERSTANDING ABOUT MODERN LATIN AMERICA? AND WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE AUTHOR’S PERSPECTIVE ON THE ARTICLE? HOW DOES THIS TOPIC RELATE TO CONTEMPORARY POLITICAL, ECONOMIC OR CULTURAL THEMES IN THE UNITED STATES TODAY?

HERE IS A LIST OF ARTICLES FROM THE NACLA WEBSITE PERTAINING TO REGIONS FOR THE NOVEMBER 6 DUE DATE. JUST PICK ANY ONE ARTICLE FROM THIS LIST FOR YOUR NOVEMBER 6 REVIEW. YOU WILL REPEAT THE SAME PROCESS FOR YOUR REVIEW ON A SOUTH AMERICAN NATION, WHICH IS DUE ON NOVEMBER 20. THESE ARTICLES RANGE IN DATE FROM FEBRUARY 2019 TO NOVEMBER 2020. FOR THIS LIST, I’M GOING IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER BY NATION:

BARBADOS:

BARBUDA:

COSTA RICA:

CUBA:

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC:

EL SALVADOR:

GUATEMALA:

HAITI:

HONDURAS:

JAMAICA:

NICARAGUA:
