Each student will be responsible for turning in a 7-page essay on Federal Government Policy. A rubric for the guidelines on this essay is provided in the “Introductions” Module. This essay will address the importance of, and consequences of, your chosen federal policy on the structure of the US Government. This could include historical federal policy such as the Emancipation Proclamation, the passage of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments, or the New Deal. Or, you could also address the impact of more recent policy such as the Patriot Act, ObamaCare, Immigration Law, or Emergency Declaration Procedure. These are all just ideas of topics that you could cover in your essay. You could come up with your own that you are more passtionate about, or maybe you might come across one as we go through the semester.
