Your research paper will be about the government shutdown, the looming debt ceiling crisis, the politics involved and the consequences of the shutdown and a possible debt failure. The paper will be due on Wednesday, October 16, rather than Monday, October 14. I will provide you will all the articles for the paper saving you an enormous amount of time in research. I have reduced the length requirement from 5 to 3 pages. I will have your instructions for the paper, the articles, and sample papers using the citation/documentation style I require (Turabian/Chicago Manual of Style) posted tomorrow.
Your last review document, the review sheet of terms and concepts, posted yesterday. Most of your test questions are about the legislature (ch. 7) and the executive (ch. 8), fewer questions from chapters 9 and 11.
