This activity is an opportunity for you to play the role of an expert regarding a single foreign policy issue and offer your best advice to the President of the United States (POTUS). Take into consideration the complexity of political, economic, cultural, religious, ideological differences, etc. when crafting a foreign policy. It is strongly suggested that you use the library database at the start of the semester to begin researching a topic. This assignment requires carefully planning throughout the semester. Refer to the course calendar for the specific due date. The final draft is to be submitted via the submission guidelines identified by the instructor.
The grading standards used to assess the quality of your work for the memo project will be detailed in a grading rubric, which will be provided during the semester. Completing this activity is a mandatory component of this course. It serves as the standard course assessment for all GOVT 2305 students. Failure to submit this project in its entirety will result in a failing grade for the course.
There are four steps to completing this project:
Step 1: Select a critical issue in the US foreign policy relationship with another country. Try to pick a country of personal interest, which should help motivate your research efforts. Then, identify strategies that could be used to improve those efforts.
Step 2: Conduct research to locate three (3) peer-reviewed articles published in an academic journal (aka: scholarly sources) using the following criteria:
• The article must be less than ten years old and a minimum of five pages in length.
• Carefully choose those works that provide a variety of perspectives on the topic.
• For current events information relevant to your topic, you may use newspaper articles, magazine articles, government publications and other reliable sources as “supplemental sources.” That is, in addition to the 3 scholarly sources.
• Textbooks, Dictionaries, Encyclopedias (including Wikipedia), Almanacs, or an Atlas are reference materials and should not be listed in any works cited page on the collegiate level.
• Properly document your sources in your memo and on a works cited page.
Step 3: Submit a proposal via e-mail by the date specified in the course calendar. Identify your topic and present a bibliography listing the 3 primary sources. Failure to submit a proposal will result in the assignment being incomplete.
Step 4: Prepare a formal policy memo for the President of the United States (POTUS). This is the only part of the project you will turn in to the dropbox system.
• Your document should quickly explain how the President can take your advice and put it into action. He is a busy man, so keep it short and to the point.
• This document should quickly articulate (in 2-3 paragraphs) the relevance of the issue, the current policy position (citing the supporting evidence) and conclude with suggested reforms.
• The memo is to be 1.5 pages in your own words and a maximum of 2 full pages in length with citations. Keep citations to an absolute minimum. No more and no less is necessary for this activity. Failure to meet the minimum writing requirement will result in a zero for the entire assignment (no partial credit will be awarded as this is a formal institutional assessment).
• The formatting protocol for a memo requires single spacing. If you need help with the formatting, use the supplements provided for the project.
• Finally, add a cover page to the front of the document and include the works cited page at the end. Submit all pages together as one file to the appropriate dropbox.
