You are to write a current event summary and analysis, can not be on immigration or Korea, a minimum of 300 words in length, of a current news story having to do with American government and/or politics. You must cite your reference (news story), as well as any other sources from which you use information in the writing assignment. A works cited page must also be included, providing full bibliographic information for each of the references that is cited in the text of the paper. All cites and references must be formatted according to MLA style.
Current event papers must be formatted according to MLA style, for papers with no title page (see the following link to access an online resource for MLA style: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/08/). In addition, please use Courier New 12 point as the paper's font, and ensure the assignment is double-spaced.
The current event paper should have the following elements:
Provide a thorough, but brief, summary of the political issue. An understanding of the issue can be developed by reading additional articles or information on the topic. Be sure to properly cite within the text (according to MLA style) any information that you obtained from one of your sources. Citations must be provided, even for paraphrased information.
Present your perspective on the political issue. Think critically about the topic discussed in the articles and clearly express your thoughts about it in writing. Consider eight standards for critical thinking (Paul and Elder, 2103): clarity, accuracy, precision, relevance, depth, breadth, logic, and fairness. Ask questions, such as
How can I validate the accuracy of my statement?
How is this information relevant?
How does my conclusion address the complexities of the issue?
What is another interpretation or viewpoint of the issue?
Does my conclusion follow from the data and/or statements I have provided?
Provide a works cited page, formatted according to MLA style, to provide full bibliographic information for each source cited within the essay.
Grading will be based on the following criteria:
Critical Thinking Skills: the extent to which you have engaged in critical thinking, innovation, and inquiry of a political issue, and has demonstrated analysis, evaluation, and synthesis of information related to the political issue;
Communication Skills: the extent to which you have effectively expressed ideas in writing;
Personal Responsibility: the ability you have to develop opinions related to a political topic, and recognize the consequences of those choices and decisions;
Social Responsibility: the ability you have to demonstrate civic responsibility and engagement by developing an understanding and perspective of a political issue that affects regional, national, and potentially global communities.There should be a citation at the end of each sentence that contains information from a source. If ALL information in the paragraph comes from the same source, then the citation can be at the end of the paragraph.
The transitions between information from the article and your writing needs to be smooth.
The assignment should be a balance of summary and analysis. You need to provide your own analysis of the issue.
