research exercise #1

  • Topics you will be researching: protesting "Made in China" products
  • Database used: Wilson Select Plus
  • Terms Entered: China and Human Rights
  • Article Title: China: From Democracy Wall to the Shopping Mall & Back
  • Journal Title: New Perspectives Quarterly
  • Author: Nathan Gardels
  • Volume, date, page #: Vol. 24, 12/5/2007
  • Additional Information: This article will be very useful for my paper because it focuses on why big stores in America like Wal-mart and Target use China as the people who make their products which is what I need. Also, it talks about how China got to this point and why all the media concern about them using rat poison in some products will decrease the popularity of their cheap products.

This is a big, challenging topic, but you sound motivated, so I can't wait to see what you discover! I also like the angle in which you are approaching this from. With the activity, I was looking for an indication of everyone having read a bit of their sources, which would show within the use of paraphrasing. This would also give me the chance to ensure everyone was doing this correctly!:)
