As your culminating writing assignment for the year, you will write a research paper on a country of your choice. You will first choose your topic (or country), and ask important questions that you would like to answer while doing your research. Please be sure to pick a country that you are interested in! Your assignment will consist of two parts: 1. A written piece in the form of a 5-paragraph essay (minimum), and 2. A printed publication in the form of a newspaper. The newspaper publication should complement the written piece of the assignment without introducing any new information.
