Write a short 3-5 page critical analysis essay (750-1250 words) on how you would improve one specific study cited by the authors (you will need to read the original article in order to conduct a thorough analysis; use the google scholar to locate a copy of the cited article).

This module focused on the various ways in which scholars have attempted to understand the impact of GOTV (get out the vote) tactics in political campaigns, utilizing a variety of methodological approaches. Write a short 3-5 page critical analysis essay (750-1250 words) on how you would improve one specific study cited by the authors (you will need to read the original article in order to conduct a thorough analysis; use the Google Scholar to locate a copy of the cited article). Be sure to lay out your proposed update clearly and methodically (i.e., plainly make the case what aspects of the study could use improvement and why plus how you would implement the improvement in your own, follow-up study). Remember: this is not a summary/book report. This is your opportunity to show me you have not only read the material (which I assume you have done) but that you have thought critically about the material and engaged with it thoughtfully with your classmates. Studies that can be used are from the book: Green, D. P., & Gerber, A. S. (2019). Get out the vote: How to increase voter turnout. Brookings Institution Press.;

Each student is responsible for writing one paper, approximately 12-18 pages in length (double-spaced, times new roman, 12-point font).

Each student is responsible for writing one paper, approximately 12-18 pages in length (double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point font). Research Design: think of this as a journal or conference quality research paper, without doing the actual research. Your paper must pose a unique and appropriate political science research question that is properly motivated, use the literature of the field to develop theoretical expectations about a relationship, and pose a suggested course of collecting and analyzing data that would allow a researcher to evaluate the question. In your conclusion you can speculate about findings, but you do not need to perform the research. Part 2: you will write a literature review; this will require going beyond the readings assigned for the semester (12-18 pages)

Provide at least two examples depicting what each side believed would happen as the judicial branch evolved.

ESSAY PROMPT:
The founding fathers of the United States created the judiciary branch with the intent that it be an independent, co-equal
branch of government. They wanted a branch of government that would be separated and protected from political
influences and that would uphold the principle that everyone, including government, be accountable under the law.
Based on the context above, write a well-developed essay that responds to the question: Should the federal judiciary be
the last line of defense in protecting constitutional rights and freedoms? Why or why not?
Be sure your response includes the following components:
1. Identifies and discusses the debate between the federalists and the antifederalists regarding the federal judiciary.
Be sure to provide historical context to this discussion. Provide at least two examples depicting what each side
believed would happen as the judicial branch evolved.
2. Compares how membership in the federal judicial branch differs from membership in the federal executive and
legislative branches, and why the difference is significant.
3. Addresses how the judicial system was set up to be free from political influence and based on the rule of law.
4. Identifies founding principles of American government and explains how those principles are exemplified in the
functions of the judicial branch. Provide at least two examples of principles.
5. Explains judicial review and whether or not the founding fathers intended for the federal judicial branch to have the
power of judicial review, including why or why not.
6. Provides examples of how the federal judicial branch uses judicial review to determine whether the acts of the
Congress, the executive branch, and state governments comply with the Constitution. Use examples for all three of
these or just one or two.
7. Provides examples of how judicial review has been used by the federal judicial branch to define and protect
freedom, equality, and justice. Be sure to provide between one to three examples that show how the federal
judicial branch has done this.
8. Makes a final evaluation (based on your opinion) of whether the federal judicial branch has evolved more along
the lines of what the federalists argued would happen or along the lines of what the antifederalists argued would
happen. Be sure to use at least one to three strong examples that clearly show how the judiciary has evolved to
support the arguments of either the federalists or the antifederalists.
9. Draws upon your final evaluation to take a position (your opinion) on whether the federal judiciary should be the
last line of defense in protecting constitutional rights and freedoms of American citizens. Why or why not? Be sure
to provide a coherent explanation that includes your final evaluation to support your position.
ESSAY CHECKLIST:
✓ Be sure the question is addressed clearly throughout your essay.
✓ Be sure your essay provides a clear, logical flow.
✓ Be sure to provide clear and coherent examples (evidence).
✓ Be sure your essay provides evidence, analysis of that evidence, and a strong conclusion.

B) summarize current issues facing our education system in texas and c) since the state of texas does not allow citizen referendums or citizen initiatives, how could the voters utilize collective action to make changes?

2. a) Define institutions b) Using the history principle and rationality principle, explain why our founders established our system of government as a representative democracy as opposed to direct democracy. This part of your answer should be written as a compare/contrast, AND it should reference Federalist 10 and 51 and c) Using the history principle and rationality principle, explain the likelihood that our institutions will change. Institutions should be addressed as both documents and branches of government. (25 pts)
3. a) Using the rationality principle, explain why you think Texas does not allow citizen referendums or citizen initiatives (Hint for writing your answer….look at party control in the state, and think about collective action. Is it easy or is it difficult for our state legislators to pass the policies that they want to pass?) b) summarize current issues facing our education system in Texas and c) Since the state of Texas does not allow citizen referendums or citizen initiatives, how could the voters utilize collective action to make changes? The term collective action should be used correctly, and you should include at least one example to illustrate your point (Number three should include specific citations) (25 pts)
4. Write an open-ended question that builds on what you’ve read for a classmate to answer. Open-ended questions should not be normative (i.e., they should require more than a yes/no answer). Questions that are not open-ended will earn a maximum of half-credit. (10 pts)
