This activity explores how our personalnews consumption is reliant on a greater ability to research smaller conversations happening at a national (and often international) level. More specifically, we are looking at how large topics can be broken into smaller ones, which are then further discussed by special interest groups. (This exercise is similar to the 39C CP and AP. For example, global warming is a large topic, but sea-level rise is a smaller related topic). This activity is also an opportunity to practice forming a research question.
Step 1:Choose one news article published within the last month. (If you don't regularly read the news, now is a good time to start!) You don't have to use an American news source, but you will have to search for the terms used within America, so avoid an obscure news topic.
Step 2:As you read your chosen article, make a list of terms the author used that you find interesting, ones you might not be familiar with or want to learn more about. This step is the beginning of your research question formation.
Step 3:Search for relevant terms in Cloudberry. The goal here is to locate other people conversing about a specific aspect of the larger topic to answer your research question(s).
I attached an example, you can follow it.
