Prepare a two-page double-spaced paper on the topic: “A Look From the Outside – In”
Guidelines: Use the website: http://watchingamerica.com/WA/. You’ll need to cut and paste the url in your browswer to access the link. ONLY the current articles posted on the web-site can be used.
“Watching America” is an online foreign news source that has numerous political, social, and economic stories of how the world understands us from their (foreign) perspective, not from an “American” view.
(1) Select and read an article of your choice (translated in English).
(2) Assume the role of a concerned citizen from the nation in which the article was written. Provide your own assessments of differences in a balanced and realistic outlook from a newsperson looking into and evaluating people’s values in the American Society. Is it possible for foreign personnel to look at people in the American Society in a “relatively fair” manner? Conclude by evaluating how you vision other nations’ “typical” values, using the cultural relativism perspective.
(3.) Present your paper in the general format of I. Introduction. II. Body/Narrative III. Summary.
