Your assignment is to read and create a literature review of the text. Students are instructed to complete three major tasks:
Explain what the article is about and why the article was written (its significance). (Hint: Compare virus effect on Africa vs. Europe/N. America)
Describe the substance of the text. What are the points being made (considerations) and the motivation behind the creation of the article? (Hint: Address the current Ethiopian fear of spread since the virus was not as harmful as it was in Europe)
Where is this topic going? What will be the effects of the text and general topic as time moves forward? (Hint: Compare how individual rights are balanced in developing states like Ethiopia to Europe)
The paper should be a full two pages with at least two other/outside sources that justify or argue against the text’s points. You can footnote with any good word processor software (see YouTube for some guides to do footnotes … it’s easy).
Font = Times New Roman
Spacing = 1.5
Margins = Normal
Pages = 2
NB: This is a great way to improve your grade. I allow for any direction you would like to take this assignment. Moreover, the final part of this short paper (the prediction) is up to you and no two students will be the same. If you have questions about this assignment, the writing center or going online will help. Upload by the deadline.
