The phrase “Relevant course resources” refers to the assigned book, articles, videos, lecture notes, and ICAs; citing them as footnotes or in-text parenthetical citations is fine (in other words, you need not include a separate bibliography for course resources). You need not consult any other sources beyond what is specified below, but if you do want to incorporate external sources, you must cite them fully.
The assignment is:
Question: Choose one of the following recent Yale Environment 360 articles, and drawing upon 2-3 relevant course resources, discuss how it links to historical events we have addressed and what you consider to be the most interesting points/issues/questions it raises, especially in relation to major themes of the course.
