Merican Governement, Obama, research paper.

In Week Five, a research paper of eightto ten-pages is due. The topic will be on some aspect of this course and should be cleared in advance with your instructor.

(Please include at least five or more references.)

There is a wide range of possible topics: some aspect of the Constitutional Convention, a more extended treatment of an important court decision or a particular individual than other class assignments allow, the Courts treatment of a particular issue over time, the origins and/or impact of one of the amendments, a failed attempt to amend the Constitution, constitutional aspects of controversial issues (past or present), to give but a few. If you need help choosing a topic, please consult your instructor.

A research paper is more than a report or compilation of information on a subject. Among other qualities, your research paper will have the following characteristics:

1. A clearly-stated thesis that indicates your view of the subject matter.

2. Adequate research from a number of different sources (no less than three published sources should be used).

3. Appropriate documentation. Sources should be cited according to APA standards.

From the last paper. I know it was just an outline, this one needs to be perfect. Thank you ((CONTENT: Good start on your content. The thesis should include information and a position. Additionally, as pertains to the annotated bibliography references, all assigned components should be included for each reference (ie: how, findings and contributions components)

APA: APA format needed (citations). Be sure the annotated bibliography citations are in APA format. Please be sure to review the APA format requirements as set forth in the Ashford Guide for Academic and Career Success (AGACS) and use the electronic resources available on the platform in conjunction with APA.
