The final paper...

From your syllabus:

"In addition to the course text, students will be asked to read three ethnographic articles of your choosing. An ethnography is the primary result of the work done by cultural anthropologists. You will then be asked to write an individual 3-5 pp paper about the articles in terms of what you learn from the course text book (more details to come, as you learn more about anthropology and its processes)."

You need to use three scholarly articles as sources for this paper.
