Topic:  Write a cultural/political analysis of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election.  Will the Republican or Democrat win and why?  Which regions/states will each win and why? Assess each of the two candidates on their domestic policies (economy, taxes, social issues) and foreign policy (military deployment, treaties, diplomacy).  Be creative and do not just list information – interpret the election as a cultural geographer.  We will have several discussions in class about the paper topic.

 

TIPS ON WRITING THE TERM PAPER

All political views are welcome.

The best papers are fact-rich, thoughtful, and clear.

No Wikipedia allowed–this on-line encyclopedia varies wildly in quality of entries.

I will deduct a letter grade if you cite Wikipedia as a source.

Cite your sources–use at least 10 sources.

 

Format: Eight (8) pages.  Double spaced. 1” margins, 12 Font in Times New Roman, number your pages at the bottom center of each page.

 

CITATION STYLE

1)  Avoid long quotes –but for quotes of more than one sentence, indent and single space

2)  Cite a source as (Jones, 1999: 2) for something that appears on page two of this source

3)  Include a References page with all sources cited in full and placed in alphabetical order

4)  Provide full citations –see following samples and/or bibliographies in books/articles for style.
