What to do:
Read the chapters in their entirety, take notes or annotate if that helps you
Read the questions, make sure you understand them and the concepts indicated before attempting a response.
You MUST cite from the text in your responses. Failure to do so will result in a 5 point deduction per question/response.
Find real world example(s) (e.g. web search) to use in your response, this shows me you can understand the concept enough to apply Please quote/cite properly.
You should be writing at least half a page per response. No penalty for writing more
12 point font, double spaced
Grading will be based on your responses and whether they reflect that you did the reading, whether you understood it properly and showed understanding through application of examples.
chapter 11 questions:
please copy and paste the questions into your doc and answer them in separate paragraphs per the following:
I suggest focusing on sections 11.1 and 11.3 (still need you to cite to the text properly, need page or section numbers as well as provide examples):
Question 1: According to the text, what was the rationale of the Founders on setting up Congress in a bicameral structure?
Question 2: What are the strengths and weaknesses of a bicameral system and in your view is it working effectively or would a unicameral structure be better?
Question 3: What is descriptive representation and do you think it is important for Congress to be descriptively representative? Why or why not?
Question 4: According to the text, why is public approval of the job Congress is doing so low historically?
