Latin American History 161: Enrique's Journey Project: News Resources, Magazines, & Journals

Research Tips

When using the databases, make sure to use quotation marks: "Central America" "unaccompanied minors"

As you're reading, be sure to write down the names of any experts as well as important people and organizations related to your topic to refine your research and gather more information. Google the names of these people and/or organizations to find out more about them. This is where Google is your friend. 

Remember, in news resources, opinion pieces (op eds) and editorials and columnists want to persuade you to adopt their point of view. Be sure that you understand which parts of their pieces deal with facts and which parts are the author's opinions. 

Also, check out the Latin American News  guide for articles from across the globe. Includes resources in Spanish and English.
