How you think your hometown/family has affected the way you view government.
Political Socialization Paper
Submit a 3-5 page paper (Times New Roman, 12 point font, heading should be single spaced body should be double spaced) containing the following information:
Where you are from and how you think your hometown/family has affected the way you view government.
Choose 1 or 2 issues we\\\’ve discussed in class or that is covered in the text (minimum wage, affirmative action, healthcare, gender inequality, gun rights…) and argue in support or opposition of the issue. Present not just your opinions but the facts to support your position.
Include the appropriate law that coincides with your position and court case(s) that coincide with your claim.
Lastly, include which member of Congress your Senator and/or your member of the House of Representatives (in Washington, DC) that either agrees with your stance on the issue(s) you selected or does not agree with you and why he or she feels the way they do.
For example, if you feel minimum wage in this country should be increased, tell me whether your representative (either your Senator or Member of the House) also thinks minimum wage in this country should be increased and why; or tell me if your representative thinks minimum wage in this country should not be increased and why, then argue why he or she is wrong based on your research of the facts.
We all have two Senators that represent us in Washington, DC. Each person also has a representative that is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives also in Washington, DC.
As we\\\’ve discussed in class they serve specific districts so you will have to research who represents you based on your zip code.
