1) identify a real world current event to which a method/procedure/model reviewed that week can be applied
2) discuss the benefits, limitations and challenges associated with applying it, and
3) describe a minimum of one alternative method/procedure/model that could be used with the same event
4) post a question to the class
Each week you will access media reporting current events. These events must be drawn from credible news outlets (e.g. cable news web pages, PBS.org, the Associated Press, online newspapers). Articles selected must not be ones that slant information or advance agendas; no news source is completely neutral but some articles have a goal of influencing readers/viewers to adopt their particular points of view. Using left-leaning or right-leaning or otherwise bias exhibiting articles as sources for your Forum posts will result in zero points for the assignment. The event you select must have occurred within the last year and be related to the week’s reading assignment.
