Please submit your review through the canvas in either of the following formats: doc, Docx, or pdf (if you are using google docs or apple pages to compose your review, please be sure to convert your paper to Docx or pdf before submitting it). late papers will be accepted for each submission, but only for one week after the assigned due dates, and will be assessed a full grade deduction.

Jennifer a. cárcamo, “poets and prophets of resistance: intellectuals and the origins of el Salvador’s civil war,” nice report on the Americas website (august 6, 2020).
in terms of the content of each report, I am looking for two main points of discussion. First, you should devote the first half of the report to a summary of the main points in the article that you selected. to help you to address this issue, consider some of these questions: what is the main issue being discussed? (i.e. immigration, elections, education, environment, women’s issues, crime, etc.) who are the main personalities mentioned in the article? (i.e. mexican president andrés manuel lópez obrador, president biden, secretary of state blinken, former president trump, etc.) how does the issue affect the people of the country mentioned in the article? does the issue have any connection with united states interests? what do you think could be the best solution to resolve this problem?
and for the second point of discussion, please analyze the article that you selected and present your point of view on the story. for example, how do you feel about the story? how did this article contribute to your understanding of modern Latin America? and what do you think about the author’s perspective on the article? how does this topic relate to contemporary political, economic or cultural themes in the united states today?
