Using the country you chose in Technology with Ms. Sylvia, you will write a 3-5 page report. You must use FOUR online resources and TWO print resources (books or magazines).

In addition to the 3-5 written pages, you must include:

· A bibliography at the end of your report with complete citation of your sources

· A map showing the topographical regions of your country. The outline of the map can be drawn or printed, but the regions MUST be hand-drawn / colored.

Your report must include the following information:

· Where is your country located on the globe? (Asia, North America, etc.)

· Topographical description of your country: Essentially what is your country made out of? (Mountains, deserts, plateaus, grasslands, etc.).

· What is the climate of your country? (Desert, tropical, etc.)

· What is the population of your country? What are the demographics (how many men, women, children; ethnic groups, etc.)

· What type of government rules your country ? When was the current government established? Who are the current political leaders?

· Are any major conflicts happening in your country at this time? If so give a brief description of what is happening.

· According to the Newseum's Press Freedom Map, does your country have a free press, partially free press, or not free press? What is their ranking on the map? List AT LEAST three examples supporting their ranking.

Reflection:

In your concluding paragraphs, write your thoughts on the following:

· In what ways is your country's government and press freedom alike and different than the United States?

· Do you think the location, climate, demographics, and / or current conflicts affect the freedoms allowed by the government? Why or why not?
