How a Member Decides to Vote

Our founding fathers created a system of government that relies on Representative Democracy. Many American voters do not understand exactly what our representatives do.  Use the “Interactive Learning module” link HYPERLINK “http://congress.indiana.edu/how-does-congress-work”here

 learning modules. Using the material presented in each learning module, write a page or more on what you learned in each module. This should result in a total of a minimum of three to five pages in your paper.  More information on what to include on each module in your essay is below:

How a Member Decides to Vote:  In this module you need to report your experiences as you participated in the activity.  Be specific. Describe the different viewpoints presented regarding the issue of the “flag amendment” that is presented in the module and report what you thought about those viewpoints. Be specific. For example your paper should report “Who said What and Why” regarding the issues. Your paper should also contain several sentences of analysis regarding each “Who said What and Why” presented in the module. How did you vote? Why? What viewpoints influenced you? Why? What did you learn? Did the activity cause you to become more concerned about the viewpoints of others? Do you have any comments about the process?

Public Criticisms of Congress: Describe the different Criticisms of Congress presented during the activity. Analyze each criticism and report your viewpoint regarding the criticism. Again, be specific.  Each viewpoint presented must be reported, along with your viewpoint regarding the criticism.

The Dynamic Legislative Process: Compare the textbook version of how a bill becomes a law to the Dynamic Legislative Process presented in the module.

Note: In order to do a good job on this assignment, you should easily have five pages (but it can be more). Be specific and elaborate on the answers to the above questions. Put your information into your own words! Think! Writing Tip: Always assume that your audience knows nothing about the issue. A common mistake students make is leaving out critical information that they have learned, because they know that the instructor already knows the information. However, an instructor cannot give credit for knowledge that is absent from the essay. Your writing should be the evidence that you have the information, and have assimilated it into knowledge. (This was a mistake that I made in writing essays for college classes until an English teacher gave me this advice: “Always write as though the instructor were an ignorant fool that you were attempting to educate about the issue”.
