About this Collection - Country Studies | Digital Collections | Library of Congress Contains the electronic versions of 80 books previously published in hard copy as part of the Country Studies Series by the Federal Research Division. Intended for a general audience, books in the series present a description and analysis of the historical setting and the social, economic, political, and national security systems and institutions of select countries throughout the world. Most books in the series deal with a single foreign country, but a few cover several countries or a geographic region. Each book was written by a multidisciplinary team of social scientists, who sought to adhere to accepted standards of scholarly objectivity. Index Mundi - Country Facts If It Were My Home Topics Index Partisanship, Propaganda, and Disinformation: Online Media and the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election | Berkman Klein Center Executive Summary In this study, we analyze both mainstream and social media coverage of the 2016 United States presidential election. We document that the majority of mainstream media coverage was negative for both candidates, but largely followed Donald Trump’s agenda: when reporting on Hillary Clinton, coverage primarily focused on the various scandals related to the Clinton Foundation and emails. We find that the structure and composition of media on the right and left are quite different. Our data supports lines of research on polarization in American politics that focus on the asymmetric patterns between the left and the right, rather than studies that see polarization as a general historical phenomenon, driven by technology or other mechanisms that apply across the partisan divide. The analysis includes the evaluation and mapping of the media landscape from several perspectives and is based on large-scale data collection of media stories published on the web and shared on Twitter.

Current Events Sites for Students CNN Student News is one of the most popular sites for student news and current events, but there are many other sites out there that are worth taking a look at. Here are some of the ones that I have used over the last couple of years.KidsPost- This is associated with the Washington Post. This site focuses on important events, but has plenty of fun and entertaining articles as well. PBS NewsHour Extra- News site for students in grades 7-12. This site also includes a searchable database of articles based on topic as well as lesson plans for teachers. National Geographic News- This site is not designed specifically for students, but it is packed with interesting articles that focus on current events around the world. Applications for Education Instead of having all students read and summarize the same current event, why not provide students with a list of places to find current events and have them select articles that interest them?
