Description

Final Paper (POS 210)


Final Paper Outline: Your final paper will be comprised of 10 Sections, with 4 paragraphs per

Section. Each paragraph will answer one of the assigned questions and be worth 5 points. That

means each Section will be worth 20 points since there are four paragraphs per Section.

Ten Sections with four paragraphs each at five points per paragraph comes to 200 points (10 x 4

x 5 = 200pts). An additional 50 points will be for my overall assessment, which will bring the

total to: 250 POINTS.

Getting Started: Pick NINE ideology topics from the following list:

1.

2. Classic Liberalism

3. New Liberalism

4. Conservatism

5. Anarchism

6. Socialism

7. Marxism

8. Leninism (aka Marxist Leninism)

9. Fascism (include Nazism)

10. One of the class-chosen topics

11. Another of the class-chosen topics


Instructions: Your nine picks above will be the first nine Sections of the paper. The tenth

Section will be your Conclusion, explained later. For each of the nine Sections, answer the four

questions below. Each question should have its own dedicated paragraph, so there will be four

paragraphs per Section. The questions are:

 Q1: How does the ideology view: liberty and equality (i.e. which one is more important?).

How does it view human nature? This should be an analytical synopsis, with little if any

opinion.

 Q2: What does the ideology believe the role of government should be with regard to

these three issues? This should be an analytical synopsis, with little if any opinion.

 Q3: What is the ideology's thoughts/viewpoint regarding the issue of poverty and how it

should be handled, including any role for government? This should be an analytical

synopsis, with little if any opinion.

 Q4: What do you like MOST about the ideology? What do you like LEAST (i.e. what is

your biggest criticism) about the ideology? This is where your opinion comes into play.


Final Paper (POS 210) – 


2


For the last Section (the Conclusion), answer the four questions below. As with the previous

nine Sections, each question should have its own dedicated paragraph so there will be four

paragraphs for this last Section. The questions are:

 C1: Which ideology would the U.S. be categorized under? What is your basis/reasoning?

This should be an analytical synopsis, with little if any opinion.

 C2: Is the ideology of the U.S. changing or pretty much staying the same? If changing,

which ideology is the U.S. changing towards? Either way, make your case. This should

be an analytical synopsis, with little if any opinion.

 C3: Whether changing or staying the same, do you consider this good or bad? Why?

This is where your opinion comes into play.

 C4: Which ideology do you MOST prefer? Why? Which ideology do you LEAST prefer?

Why? This is where your opinion comes into play.


Formatting: The formatting of the Final Paper is the same as with the other papers in this course,

EXCEPT for the length. In addition, each of the 10 Sections should have a heading, the last

Section/heading is the Conclusion. Requirements:

  • Length: 4-5 pages
  •  The whole paper should be 2500-3000 words (that's 250-300 words per section)
  •  Single-Spaced – No double-spacing, no 1.5 or 1.1-line-spacing
  •  Font styles: Times New Roman or Calibri
  •  Font size: 12
  •  Page margins: 1 inch
  •  Heading for each Section
  • Since this is the final paper, I will be fairly strict that you adhere to the above formatting

parameters.

Sources: My assumption is that you are basing the answers to the questions in this paper on

what we have discussed throughout this course. As such, you do NOT need to cite your sources

UNLESS you are quoting something/someone (such as from one of the many excerpts we

explored), or UNLESS you are giving information that has NOT come from this course. If you DO

need to include such a reference, just put it in parenthesis right after the quote/information.

You can use whatever format you want as far as citing the source, as long as it is clear where it

came from (i.e. I could find it if I wanted to).
