The Final Paper assesses the final two Course objectives.
Write an Op-ed article for a newspaper, on a topic that is relevant to this class. It must address a specific policy issue that is not working, and it must present solutions on how to improve it. You may research outside resources for policy suggestions, but be sure to also incorporate this course’s texts. This is a comprehensive final to assess your understanding of this course’s objectives.
Grading will be based on the quality of the writing, the clarity of the argument, and how well it is supported by the literature from the course. See the attachment for tips on writing an effective op-ed.
The required length is 4 double-spaced pages. Remember to cite sources in the text with Turabian in-text citations and write a Reference List at the end of your work.
