Please choose an article from https://nacla.org about Mexico or Central America (Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Belize, or Panama). It can be from “Magazine,” “Columns” and “Opinion and Analysis.”
In terms of the content of the 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, Nicolás Maduro, Maurcio Macri, 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? In other words, please try to be as objective as possible during this portion of the assignment. 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? (i.e. did he or she exhibit any conservative or progressive opinions?) Whether you are liberal or more conservative in your political views, I encourage you to present your views as you discuss this portion of the assignment.
The report should be 3 pages + work cited page. In the works cited page, compose your article entry in a format like this for example: Nidia Bautista, “Justice for Lesvy: Indifference and Outrage in Response to Gender Violence in Mexico City,” NACLA Report on the Americas website (July 31, 2017).
