Marked Assignment 3

Some argue that the Supreme Court controls or shapes the important aspects of how we live. If this is true then it seems to suggest that parliament’s importance is diminished. At the same time, voter participation is declining and Canadians seem to be tuning out of federal politics. Drawing on Samara’s Democracy 360 and the work of Philip Slayton, write an opinion piece on the importance (or lack thereof) of citizen engagement in federal politics. Should we care what politicians do? Do we have a say in what the Supreme Court decides? Does the “democratic health” of Canada matter? You can interpret this assignment in any way that you like. However, your answer must include the following: Define the issue – what is the issue that you will be discussing? What is the scope of the discussion? Why is it important? Construct a strong argument - you now know what an argument includes and have some idea about what constitutes a strong argument. For some tips, see http://www.unco.edu/philosophy/arg.html . Establish a clear structure – every good answer needs a beginning, middle and end. “In the beginning, there was a… clear statement of purpose J” - your conclusion should summarize what you have argued but should not contain new arguments. Here is a good resource for writing essays – you might find some of it useful http://www1.aucegypt.edu/academic/writers/ . Communicate well – what constitutes a well-communicated answer will depend on the form the answer takes (more to come on possible forms). However, you should use correct grammar and appropriate diction. Demonstrate your knowledge of the texts - draw on key concepts from the texts – unpack them (don’t just stay on the surface) – demonstrate that you have mastered the readings. You may also draw on other readings or outside sources if you like. Demonstrate your ability to reason – this is your chance to shine. Show everyone how smart you are by providing a brilliant analysis, a scathing critique, an insightful observation, or a profound irony. What form should my answer take? Your answer can take one of the following forms: A newspaper op-ed – here are some guidelines: http://newsoffice.duke.edu/duke_resources/oped A briefing note for a politician – the politician can be real or fictional – your note should include advice (depending on how you define the issue and the interests of the politician) – here is some guidance: http://www.publicsectorwriting.com/?page_id=6 A work of visual art with commentary – the commentary should explain the meaning and significance of the artwork. It can’t be just a short caption – it must be more like a short essay. How long does it need to be? Good question. The real answer is, “as long as it needs to be and no longer”. However, the practical answer is between 750-1000 words. Reading: Elections Canada, “The Evolution of the Federal Electoral Process”: (http://www.elections.ca/content.aspx?section=vot&dir=bkg&document=ec92530&lang=e ) Samara, “Democracy 360”: (https://issuu.com/samaracanada/docs/democracy360_story_embargoed_march_/1?e=14683212/12010749 )
