Part 1 News Report

News Report Requirements:

The subjects we cover in WMST 200 appear in the news daily. Part 1 of the Current Topic Project is a report on a news article which will connect our course work to the most current developments of interest to the field, especially those that impact people’s day-to-day lives.

  1. Select a news article published in the last 12 months that focuses on a topic of interest to Women’s Studies [choose from the list below, or choose your own based on the criteria described in the next section of this assignment].
  2. After you have read your chosen news article, respond to the questions below in a 700-1,000 word (3-4 page) report about the article and what you have learned, focusing on the aspects of interest to Women’s Studies:
    1. Title, author, publication, date, and url for your news article.
    2. Brief (1-2 sentence) summary of the main topic of the article.
    3. Why would this article be of particular interest to a Women’s Studies student or scholar? If you’re not sure, one place to start is to review the information about Women’s Studies found in Module 1: What Is Women’s Studies?.
    4. What did you learn that you didn’t already know by reading this article?
    5. Which topic, person, example, or idea in the article would you like to know more about? What questions would you suggest the reporter ask in a follow-up article?
    6. What social, political, personal, historical, economic, artistic, or other impact might the information in this article have? Why?
    7. Is there anything you read or thought about while reading the article that has relevance to your life outside of this class or outside of the article itself?

Include quotes and examples to support your discussion as part of your responses to questions 3-7. Remember to include in-text citations and a References list for all references to the article or class learning resources, whether quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.

Please note that this assignment is a report, not an essay. You must write in complete sentences, but you do not have to write it as an essay with a thesis, body paragraphs, etc.. Instead, it is recommended that you number each response as you answer the questions. To meet the word count requirement, be sure to answer questions 3-7 in detail, and give specific examples or quotes (cited!) for each answer.

Choosing a news article:

An acceptable news article for this assignment meets all four of the following criteria:

  1. is found on one of the publications/sites listed in this Forbes report of 10 Journalism Brands Where You Find Real Facts Rather Than Alternative Facts: [there are many more than ten reliable news sources to choose from if you scroll to the bottom of the article]
  2. was published in the last 12 months.
  3. has a byline (a named author), and is not marked “op-ed,” “opinion,” or “editorial”
  4. has as its main focus a topic of interest to Women’s Studies

If you are uncertain if the article you have found is acceptable for this assignment, ask your instructor before proceeding, or choose one of the approved articles in the list below:

Writing Guidelines:

This report should demonstrate that you

  • read the article closely.
  • are considering the article from the perspective of Women’s Studies.
  • can write an organized, clear, detailed, and properly cited report .

Use APA Style to format the report and all citations (in-text and in the references list).

Here are some links to resources which cover the APA format:

While I am happy to answer questions about the assignment, I encourage you to make use of UMGC’s Effective Writing Center if you’d like detailed writing help or another set of eyes to look at your paper before you turn it in. The EWC will require a few days to review a draft, so you will need to finish the paper early if you want to submit it to them.

There is a sample News Report attached to this assignment. It is not a perfect paper, and yours does not need to look exactly like it, but it demonstrates a good understanding of the assignment and formatting requirements. The sample assignment is for informational purposes only. Your News Report should contain entirely original work, even if you choose a similar topic.

What I received was great. I forgot to mention in the instructions field that I needed reference page and by default, there was 0 in the number of references. I was surprised to see a full-fledged reference page in my paper with relevant citations. Bravo!

Thank you for the help, I took my time and ordered a 14 days long essay. It came much earlier, around 7 days after I ordered it. Oh, and it was good, of course. I like the writer who did that, will definitely use again.
