In class we will discuss a number of trends and issues that affect or are affected by international tourism; this paper is a more in-depth exploration of an important issue or trend (e.g. fuel prices, AIDS, terrorism, global warming, gender and tourism, globalization, religious pilgrimages). Each student will select a specific country and an issue facing tourism in the country.
The paper should include:
Title page (name, title, date, class period) - I will take care of this part
Discussion of your issue and how it is affected by or affects tourism, predictions and future implications of the issue
What the country is doing to fix it or what they are planning to do
What you feel the country could do to fix the issue
Your own reflection on the issue or trend
This paper must be 3-5 pages (not including references and title page), double-spaced, 1-inch margins, Times New Roman 12 point font, and with AT LEAST four sources cited within the paper and referenced at the end of the paper (see course policy #8).
Grading Criteria 8-points for sections 2-7, 7 points for APA format
These are meant as models for Essay 6 Thesis Statements--remember, a thesis should set up or forecast the direction of the paper--it should be opinionated and judgmental. A summary or a general statement will not suffice.
