Is the content credible or otherwise useful for scholastic research?
Locate at least three ways in which political information is available on the Web. You may use political party websites, interest group websites, government websites, media outlets, etc. Provide the link and a two to three paragraph review of the website, including your assessment as to why the website may be useful to you or a group of people and what you learned from the website. The assignment requires complete and comprehensive reviews of three different websites. No partial credit is given to submissions with fewer than three websites.
You will need to write two or three paragraphs for each website. This assignment is worth up to 100 points, and a thorough review of the sites is expected. Your assessment of these sites should include, but not be limited to, these points: Is the content biased, and if so, why? Is the content credible or otherwise useful for scholastic research? Is the content timely and relevant?
As with the other assignments, it will need to be uploaded in MS Word
For your final discussion, and since you are now well-versed in Texas Government, you need to tell the legislature what law they need to pass. Come up with a new law or tweak an existing law – there are only a few restrictions. First, it has to be constitutional – no “banning Republicans/Democrats” or “chop off someone’s hand for a misdemeanor” laws. Second, since we have already discussed guns and drugs, you need to come up with a new area to explore. Also, since you also know about interest groups now, what interest groups do you think will oppose/support your law as it goes through the legislative process?
