Issues within a Specific Region of Africa Today
This written assignment is based on you working closely with the “Our-Africa.org” link, and in the discussion forum, “M1 Discussion Icebreaker.” You are now required to write a 3 page paper (double-spaced, Times New Roman). For your paper, adopt a region and create a character in a real-life situation(s), then follow that character’s life based on your research in that region. The paper must include your understanding and discussions on the readings, as well as your examination and impression on one or more issues surrounding gender, cultural, economic, geographical, environmental and or political development within a specific region of Africa today.
EXAMPLE: Consider being a Camoroonian family who carries the proud history of sharing food, but is currently experiencing food shortage. What would your story be?
“Food is considered essential to hospitality and Cameroonians will go out of their way to feed a guest, even when they have little to offer. Life is a struggle for poor families, who rely on growing their own food through subsistence farming. If drought or floods destroy harvests, there is no welfare system to which people can turn.” (Our Africa: Food & Daily LifeOpens in a new window).

Instructions for Written Assignment: Please read carefully
Your written assignments are intended to test your understanding of important concepts and discover how to sharpen your intellectual skills of analysis, synthesis, evaluation, and application. They are also intended to provide opportunities to more fully describe, explain, and analyze the books and other sources. When you submit your essays, proofread and submit them as file attachments, as these usually retain your formatting and allow for feedback within the document from the instructor.
