This assignment consists of three parts found in order in this packet: 1. Textbook questions. This will require that you answer questions from Chapters 0 – 3 (Introduction, Europe, Russia, and North America). They are written in multiple choice format, so all you have to do is circle the right answer. All together, these questions are worth 10 points, due to the fact that it will be hard to get them wrong and also the high potential for people to copy off of one another. 2. Country questions. Each student has been assigned a country in Europe (found on page 9 of this packet). You are to log on to the CIA’s World Fact Book (https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/) and answer all ten questions found on page 8 of this packet in complete sentences. Each question is worth 1 point, for a total of 10 points. 3. Short current event essay. For this portion of the assignment, you are to log onto a news website (BBC or CNN are good starts), or use a physical newspaper from the library, and find a current news article regarding the country that you have been assigned (same as above). You will summarize the situation, without plagiarizing the article, and offer your opinion as to the importance/relevance of the current event. In other words, why does it matter – not only to you personally, but why is it newsworthy? Cite your source(s)! This portion of the assignment is also worth 10 points. 1
