. The midterm should follow the following format: double-spaced, 12-point

T‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍he midterm paper (4 complete pages plus bibliography) will be a newspaper article in response to one of the optional readings from the course. The midterm should follow the following format: double-spaced, 12-point, Times Roman Font, one-inch margins. Please use APA style citations. The midterm is to be submitted via the Turnitin link (found on Blackboard, under “Assignments”) in a MS-Word compatible format by 11:59pm on March 25th. Make the file name: lastname_firstname_midterm.doc. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ASSIGNMENTS ARE SUBMITTED ON TIME. Barring truly extenuating circumstances, reviewed on a case-by-case basis, you will lose 3 points for every 24 hours that the midterm is late (e.g., if you turn in the midterm on March 26th and you would have received 25/30 on the assignment, you will receive 22/30 after the 3-point deduction). Instructions: The assignment is to write a newspaper article on a topic related to America government that is inspired by one of the readings for the course. DO NOT SUMMARIZE OR ANALYZE THE CHOSEN READING. You should start with an introduction that lays out the topic and perhaps provides the reader with a roadmap. You should then briefly summarize the topic you chose. Most of the essay should be devoted to the development of your analysis, critique, and/or reflection. In the conclusion, summarize your argument and maybe include some “food for thought” or what can be learned from further study of the topic. As part of the assignment, you should interview a person whose experience will help get your point across. Include quotes from this person in the paper along with the person’s name and relation to the topic. You can quote the person anonymously if revealing the person’s identity would compromise your source (consult with me first!). ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ Though this is a newspaper article, I want you to include ample supporting evidence for your statements and arguments. Writing tips: Before you start writing, think about what you want to argue (., what points you want to make, what evidence you want to present, etc.) and develop an outline that indicates how you will demonstrate your argument. You should go through at least two drafts. As you write, you will likely discover new ideas and points that you will want to incorporate in the essay. In order to make sure that the essay is intellectually coherent, you must go back and revise. On that note, an essay is not a random collection of thoughts. Make sure to have a clear topic and good structure. Remember, if you cannot answer the 5 W’s, you do not yet have a clear argument. And, use transition words/sentences to guide the reader through your argument. Likewise, an essay is not an outline. So, develop your ideas. Do not simply state points, but expand on them/explain their importance and connections to other issues. Lastly, remember to put yourself the reader’s place. What questions would you raise if you were a knowledgeable reader unfamiliar with the topic? Revise your paper so as to provide sufficient information/evidence and to counter potential objections. Editing tips: Do not use slang, contractions, abbreviations, or text-message acronyms! Avoid overly long, complex sentences. Write in the active rather than the passive voice. When writing about the past, use the past tense. Avoid block quotes. Proofread your paper carefully (once on the computer and once in hard copy).
