a. Text and Image Sources: Given the level of broad speculation and falsified claims made on the internet,
websites are extremely unreliable to use in this research. Therefore, it is recommended to abstain from using internet sources, which disguise their faultiness by providing selective references to some scholarly research.
The use of Google Scholar or any other library database to search for scholarly articles is encouraged, but avoid relying only on Google searches to research topics about Latin America. In addition, your paper must include text and any additional audiovisual material that may support or enhance the content under discussion. I encourage students to include maps to orient their audience, images and videos to illustrate cultural landscapes, and tables for quantifiable data. Keep in mind that quantitative measurements about foreign locations are meaningless
unless they are framed within comparative statements about familiar places. Figures, maps, and tables only do not count toward the minimum pages required. Keep in mind that quantitative measurements about foreign locations are meaningless unless they are framed within comparative statements about familiar places. For example, you can compare the statistical data for your country with that of the United States.
b. This is a research paper not an essay or opinion paper so your submission must reflect your bibliographic research and include text and any additional audiovisual material that may support or enhance the content under discussion. In-text citations and references must be provided for text, figures, tables, or data included from sources such as the course textbooks, additional readings, or academic web pages. Follow a proper intext (author/date/page number style) and bibliographic citation.
