The Lesson Writing Assignments are worth 40 points each. Students are expected to answer all of the questions for the selected writing prompt. Submissions that are more comprehensive and detailed will earn a higher point total. This exercise is to show that you have read the material and that you have thought about the issues. Your submissions should be several substantial paragraphs (minimum 300 words).
You should use New Courier or Times New Roman, 12 point font, double-spacing, and one inch margins on all four sides of the paper.
All writing assignments will be analyzed using SafeAssign. Essays that contain plagiarized material will receive a significant reduction in points or a zero. Students may receive a failing grade in the course for submitting plagiarized material. Do not cut and paste information from an online source or copy information directly from the textbook. You may need to include data from the chapter or a related article in your writing assignment and it is necessary to include citations for this information. The assignment is to be formatted according to the Modern Language Association (MLA) style which includes a works cited page but does NOT include a title page. For assistance with MLA style visit the Purdue Online Writing Lab.

Lesson 2 Writing Assignment
For this assignment, choose ONE of the writing prompts and write a minimum 300 word essay. For more detailed instructions, review the Instructions for Lesson Writing Assignments.
1) Read the discussion of “descriptive representation” in Chapter 4. Then, review how Congress has changed over time with respect to race and ethnicity, women and veterans in the Pew Research article “The changing face of Congress in 6 charts.” Discuss the different trends in Congress and what do you think it means for the future? Does it matter if members of Congress look like most Americans? What are the advantages and disadvantages of descriptive representation?
2) Chapter 10 discusses many aspects of domestic and foreign policy in the United States. Review public attitudes towards both the size of government and government spending in the Pew Research article “Little Public Support for Reductions in Federal Spending.” According to the survey data, where are people who identify as Republican or Lean Republican more interested in increasing spending? Where are people who identify as Democrats or Lean Democratic more interested in increasing spending? What does the Pew Research Center survey suggest concerning the public’s interest in cutting government spending? Looking at the results of the surveys, what do you think are the prospects for reducing government spending? Why?
3) Both the president and Congress play a role in decisions regarding the use of military force. What are the president’s powers in this area? What are the powers of Congress in this area? Read the article “ New Legislation Offers Opportunity to Address 2001 Authorization for Use of Force, Amid Fears of War with Iran .” Why do you think members of Congress have been willing not to vote on the use of force and to allow modern presidents (such as Bush, Obama and Trump) to take the lead in this area? Do you think Congress should play a larger role in decisions regarding the use of military force?
