Unit IV Online Issue Critique

 

Visit the site http://www.whitehouse.gov/. Go to the “Issues” tab, and select an issue to write about. You will notice a broad range. Once you select the issue to write about, answer the following questions:

 

1. Summarize the main points of the issue you chose.

2. What initiatives and acts are put in place from the government to help resolve the issue?

3. Focus on one initiative or act that was put in place, and describe problems you see with

implementation of the solution.

 

Begin with an introduction that defines the subject of your critique and your point of view. Defend your point of view by raising specific issues or aspects of the argument. Conclude your critique by summarizing your argument and reemphasizing your opinion.

 

 You will first need to identify and explain the author’s ideas. Include specific passages that support your

description of the author’s point of view. (Remember to cite and reference your sources.)

 

 Offer your own opinion. Explain what you think about the argument. Describe several points with which

you agree or disagree.

 

 For each of the points you mention, include specific passages from the text (you may summarize, quote,

or paraphrase) that provide evidence for your point of view. (Remember to cite and reference your

sources.)

 

 Explain how the passages support your opinion.

Write an essay that is at least 300 words in length, fully elaborating on each of the three questions. Appropriate APA format is required, and the following rubric will be used for a total of 100 possible points.
