Paper: Conduct research using the “recommended websites” section at the end of chapter 7 of your textbook. Choose 2 to 3 terrorist groups and write a 4 to 5-page paper comparing these 2 to 3 groups. What are some of the similarities they share? What are some of the differences? Provide some of the actual attacks or attempted attacks that these groups have conducted against the United States or its allies (Do not use September 11, 2001, as an example). This should be a 5 to 6 page paper (not including title and reference pages) written in APA format and following the Writing rubric. You must use a minimum of 3 sources.
Presentation: Create a PowerPoint presentation on the same topic you just described in your paper. When creating the PowerPoint presentation, pretend that you are an intelligence agency briefing the president of the United States. Your PowerPoint presentation should be between 20 and 30 slides and be created to last about 20 to 30 minutes. Please remember that a PowerPoint presentation is there to support and not replace your paper or speech. You want to keep it straight and simple (KISS). Be sure to only use keywords and stay away from using whole sentences.
*Since you will not be giving the presentation in class, please use the Speaker Notes or Notes Pages in PowerPoint to document important key points that need to be covered in the presentation.
