Today, your first task is to save your annotated bibliography to your country's folder on the Y: drive (here is the rubric). Save it with the following information in the title of the file: "Your last name -- Your country name -- Biblio". Make sure each entry includes the citation, your annotation (with summary and evaluation), and is approximately 5-7 sentences each. Include your heading.
Once you've done that, it is time to start putting your position paper together. Remember -- you should have one source which tells you about your assigned committee and two sources which tell you about your country's opinion/history on that committee. Use your annotated bibliography and the questions you answered from the research sheet.
The rubric for the paper can be found here, and the model which you MUST follow can be found here. If you have not read the model and rubric yet, do this first. These documents will show you exactly what information you must include in your paper. You can also take a look at the example position paper before you get started.
You should have all of the information that you need to complete your paper at this point. If you need to look for additional sources, you may access the sites previously discussed in class -- basically, anything on the LRC page, as well as anything I've posted on this blog.
We will be in the computer lab on Tuesday, May 3 to save the papers to the Y: drive. This is your assignment over break -- make sure you ask me any questions before you leave.
The final paper is due Wednesday, May 4.
