Organize with your group
Each team has a topic (e.g. human rights, terrorism, poverty, economic, environmental, etc).
Each student needs to pick a current event related to their team topic occuring in one of the world regions (Europe, Central America, South America, Africa, Middle East, East Asia, South Asia, Oceania).
As you search, gather the following on your current event and region:
- What is the current event?
- Where is it happening?
- Who is involved?
- A brief background and explanation
- Why is it important?
- How does it relate to the topic?
Start with reliable news sites
NOTE: Your presentation must be based on a current event from the last 6 months (e.g. not older than March 2014), but you can supplement that with older articles for background info.
Add background and data
CQ Researcher: database with summaries on current topics in the nation and the world.
Business Monitor Online: database with country reports and SWOT analyses.
