Critically Evaluate Newspaper Articles on Contemporary Issue

Find out more about the Signature Course Faculty Toolkit

In this course, students had to choose 5 newspaper articles about US foreign policy toward Pakistan, conduct an ideological analysis of the coverage and assess how good a job the reporter did. Because this paper required an understanding of Pakistan and US policy toward Pakistan, librarians created an exercise and guide to help students find appropriate background information about the politics and history of Pakistan and US-Pakistan relations.
