This week, we continue completing the worksheets in preparation for the Final Paper. It is recommended that you review the Learning Activity assignments and review the Final Paper prompt before beginning this assignment. Please be sure to review the feedback provided by your instructor on your Week One Learning Activity as well. A model POL201 Final Paper Guide is provided for you to download and utilize when completing your Final Paper. One of the most important structures in the national government is federalism. Understanding the relationship between local, state, and national level governments is critical in being able to understand all of the key features of our national government. Describe an advantage and a disadvantage to a national policy that an agency in the federal bureaucracy must implement. In addition, recommend an option to maintain the advantage and one to improve the disadvantage.
To complete the assignment, save the Week Two Learning Activity Worksheet to your computer, fill it out, and submit it via WayPoint.
Develop several detailed paragraphs regarding your second main point using the Week Two Learning Activity Worksheet.
You are required to develop four paragraphs that explain one advantage and one disadvantage of a national policy that is implemented by one agency of the federal bureaucracy, as well as options to maintain the advantage and improve the disadvantage must also be addressed.
For assistance with your research, the Ashford University’s Library provides tutorials and recorded webinars on a variety of topics. To access these helpful resources look for the links located under the [email protected] search box on the library home page. For help with writing and citations, please review the handouts and tutorials provided by the Ashford Writing Center.
A reference list of at least two scholarly resources from the Ashford University library with full APA citations is required. While your textbook can be utilized as a source, it does not count towards your two sources for this assignment. Two new sources should be utilized each week to meet the minimum of eight required sources for the final. By finding and supporting your material with these sources each week, you will have the research necessary to construct a strong Final Paper.
The Scholarly, Peer Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources table offers additional guidance on appropriate source types. If you have questions about whether a specific source is appropriate for this assignment, please contact your instructor. Your instructor has the final say about the appropriateness of a specific source for a particular assignment.
Be sure that the sources you are utilizing to support your ideas are valid, reliable, and not overly bias.
