Remember who your state representative and state senator are from a previous quiz? .. If you are from another state other than Iowa, use your state.
Then research to determine (Missouri’s state representative and state senator) their legislative positions on:
1. K-12 education
2. Community colleges
3. Regent universities
Then compare their stances with the positions of the Republican and Democratic parties of Iowa (Democrats and Republicans). Provide your opinion on their stances (don’t rant, make a reasoned argument!).
You will likely have to do some digging to ranging from their web-sites, perhaps local media coverage, or other sources… Be careful on the internet, you may find the political opponents of your legislator have posted distorted material about them….as a scholar, it is your job to figure out their actual legislative positions that they vote for…maybe email them….they might answer back! If you get stuck, send me an email!
3 to 4 pages, double space, 12 point script. Bibliography does not count in the page total.
Be sure to clearly identify who your state legislators are and what district they represent and the county you live in…cite your sources! Don’t use your national senators or representatives!!!!! That is a common mistake.
You may use your home county (Christian County, MO) or where you live presently. If you live out of state, feel free to use your home state for the assignment.
