Federal Gov Writing Assignment

You are to write a current event paper, approximately 750 words in  length, consisting of a summary and analysis of a current event having  to do with American government and/or politics. You must cite a minimum of five references (sources) in the paper and include a works cited page  at the end of the assignment to provide full bibliographic information  for each of the references that was cited in the text of the paper.

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 should be developed by reading the articles  uncovered during research for the assignment. The information provided  in the summary will lay the foundation for you to react and respond to  (analyze) the political issue. 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?
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.
