Project 3 Congress
This paper is POSITIONAL. The purpose of this project is to learn more about who is representing you in the U.S. Congress, and to let your voice be heard on an issue that interests you.The paper is to be written in 3rd person.
*Who are they?
*What are their electoral histories, committee assignments, etc? Be brief with committee assignments.
*What groups or interests have supported them financially? Check out how their voting records have been ranked by interest groups.
*Do their committee assignments make sense?
*What are they up to in Congress?
*Do your legislators and their assignments seem to fit your district/state?
*How do you feel about this person, now that you’ve learned a little more about them?
*Is this person a good Representative? Why or why not?
GIVE ME ANALYSIS on how YOU think this person is doing as your representative. Analyze their voting record. Are they consistent? Are they true to their party platform? Discuss some of the projects they have worked on and tell me whether they have done a good job on them. I am more interested in what YOU think.
Do not give me a report….give me an analysis. Make absolutely sure that if you have data in your paper that you give PROPER CITATION. Lack of citation will result in a 25 point deduction. I will also check your sources.
The member’s website can be a useful source of information, but keep in mind everything you read there will naturally have a positive slant towards the member. This part of the project should be a minimum of 2 pages, and of course double spaced.
These websites should provide you with the information that you need to write your profiles:
Vote Smart (www.vote-smart.org) – This site contains biographical information, issue positions, campaign finance information, voting records and interest group evaluations for each member of Congress
Center for Responsive Politics (www.opensecrets.org)- This site has detailed information on campaign contributions received by candidates in each district and where their money came from.
