You must include at least five external sources to support your work. These sources should be reputable, academically-appropriate sources. Your textbook can be one of your sources. Wikipedia and Buzzfeed would not be considered appropriate sources. If you have questions about the validity of your source, please feel free to ask. Use MLA format to appropriately document your external sources.

You must have at least three of your five external academic sources in this section. You may use your textbook as a source (this will count as one source).
iii. Research/Data Analysis
This section of your paper will focus specifically on the country you have selected.
How does this country’s culture differ from our own? How is it similar? Use what you’ve learned from our textbook so far to support your answers. Do NOT just state your opinion or repeat common stereotypes of other cultures.
How do the observations you’ve noted affect daily life in this country?
What suggestions have you found in your research for people wanting to visit your country?
In this section, you will wrap up your paper and summarize your final thoughts. What did you learn from this paper? How do your discoveries relate to current society?
