Choosing a Good Article

  • The article should be a longer one (at least a 1,000 words long), so that you will have some materials to work with. It is a good idea trying to find a “feature” piece (= a longer story in a newspaper, magazine, trade or academic journal). You may use more than one article—however, if you use several short articles make sure that they are related to an overarching topic or theme.
  • Make sure that the source of the article is a credible one! In other words, choose a source with credibility (e.g., the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times). Materials from “,” “,” etc., that you accidentally found while surfing the Internet are not eligible. Contact your professor or librarian if you have any questions or doubts about the credibility of your chosen source.
  • In general, the article should not be older than 5 years. If you find something that is older and you think it is valid (there are classics out there that still hold water) talk to me first before using it.
