POLS210 Class Project:

There are four parts to your class project: the first three are essays. The final part is a PowerPoint presentation that will display the combined work on the essays. For each assignment, there will be detailed instructions and rubrics with scoring criteria available in the “Assignments” section of the course.

 

OVERVIEW:

 

  1. You are a White House Staff Member working for a newly inaugurated President. The President is preparing the first “State of the Union” address to Congress which will outline the president’s vision for addressing current issues facing the United States.
  2. You will research issues to create the President’s address. The president is not a dictator. The proposals must consider the Constitution, relevant court rulings, and public opinion.

 

  1. After you have completed your research of the issues, you will then create a PowerPoint presentation reflecting your proposed State of the Union address. Think of it as your TV infomercial promoting your plan, and use it to grab the public’s attention.

 

  1. The President (your class instructor) will then review your PowerPoint presentation to make sure it accurately addresses the issues facing America within the context of what is allowed under the U.S. Constitution.

Issue essays

 

Using the “Assignments” section of the classroom, you will write three essays together with cited research sources—minimum of 300 words per essay on each of the following topics/issues:

 

  1. Healthcare (due at end of Week 2)
  2. Economy (due at end of Week 4)
  3. National Security (due at end of Week 6)

 

For each essay, choose a problem within the topic. What are two prominent competing solutions to this problem? Explain which one is better and why. How will the different levels of government be involved (federal, state and local)? This will require research into news recent news articles (published within four weeks of each assignment’s due date). For each respective week, include relevant information from the required readings for that week too.

 

PowerPoint presentation (due at end of Week 7)

 

After you have completed your research of the issues for the essays, you will design and build a presentation that represents each of the above issues and proposed solutions. This is an opportunity for you to use your creative side. You will use a minimum of three slides for each issue for a total of at least nine slides.
