DS 112 triangulation matrix (updated)

- Form a group with four responsible members.
- Choose a contemporary Philippine development issue.
- Observe the no duplication policy.
- Gather four sources based on your topic of choice (one from IBON/Bulatlat/Pinoy Weekly, one from PIDS, one from a peer-reviewed academic journal, and one from Rappler/PCIJ/Inquirer's Talk of the Town/VERA Files).
- Exercise due prudence in choosing your topics and sources.
- Develop a matrix that will compare and contrast the materials based on 20 considerations/factors (e.g. author's profile, paradigm, data source, bias, analysis on various issues, policy recommendation, etc.).
- Consider this as a preliminary training in triangulation and discourse analysis. #thesis
- Observe this format (landscape, TNR, 10 points, single spacing)
- Adopt a five-column matrix with the first column  allotted to the set of considerations/factors upon which you will base your comparison and contrast, and the rest of the columns for the four gathered references.
- Provide a separate page for your group's critical analysis.
- Bear in mind this system of grading: matrix 50% and analysis 50%.

This output which is equivalent to your first long exam is due on Friday.
