Why do you think so?

This assignment requires close textual reading and analysis and is an opportunity for me to
offer early feedback on your writing and approach to the ideas of the course. You do not need
to refer to any texts other than the course readings and class lectures and discussions. You are
especially discouraged from looking at online explanations or summaries of these texts. I
would like to see how you develop your explanations and analysis.
The primary aim is to identify the key issue(s) being discussed here, why these thinkers frame
the issues in the way they do, and the consequences of doing so for their view of politics, i.e.
what conclusions do their framings of the issues lead them to?
You need to make a clear argument in the form of a thesis statement that concisely states your
position in relation to the issue you have identified and lay out the basis for demonstrating your
claim with reference to the texts we have read. Since this is a very brief paper you have to be
quite specific in narrowing down the prompt below to one (maximum 2!) key issue to discuss.
This essay is not an opportunity for a summary of the course texts. However, contextualizing
the arguments made in the course text by using direct quotations and analysing them is highly
encouraged

Critical review essays should incorporate ALL the required readings of the week, where you will:
State the central arguments of the readings (and note any similarities and differences in their positions); in one sentence, tell me the main argument;
Outline the significance of the topic and the arguments being made;
Overview of your assessment of the readings, including any strengths, limitations, and critiques (based on your own experiences, knowledge, and other relevant course material and discussions).
This includes developing your argument and position on the readings.
Importantly, this assignment is not merely a summary of the readings but requires you to develop a critical assessment and analysis of the assigned texts; this analysis should be guided by a persuasive argument stated at the beginning of the essay. Students are NOT expected to go outside of the required course readings for this assignment. If you find it helpful to craft your analysis and argument, you are welcome to include recommended readings, but this is NOT necessary to complete the assignment. Review essays should be 1500 words in length (double-spaced, Times New Roman 12-point font). Please use APA citation style.

For example, how might you advise the organization to utilize some, but not all, available gotv methods.

Overview Each student is responsible for writing one research design paper OR one memorandum to a political campaign/organization. The purpose is: Research Design: expand the field’s knowledge regarding campaigns and elections or Campaign Memo: advise a candidate/organization on how best to run their campaign, given what academics know about campaigns Instructions Each student is responsible for writing one paper, approximately 12-18 pages in length (double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point font). Research Design: think of this as a journal or conference quality research paper, without doing the actual research. Your paper must pose a unique and appropriate political science research question that is properly motivated, use the literature of the field to develop theoretical expectations about a relationship, and pose a suggested course of collecting and analyzing data that would allow a researcher to evaluate the question. In your conclusion you can speculate about findings, but you do not need to perform the research. Campaign Memo: think of your role as a campaign or political organization advisor or campaign manager. Given the research in the field, how would you advise your candidate to campaign or how would you advise the political organization to GOTV, given what we know from academia? For example, how might you advise the organization to utilize some, but not all, available GOTV methods. Alternatively, you may craft a media campaign for your candidate, given what academics know about the impact of campaign advertisements. Your memo will incorporate findings from political science, but must be written for the layperson to understand. Ultimately, you are distilling political science research in a digestible, actionable way for a candidate or organization to make use of to further their electoral goals. Part 3: you will hand in your completed project (100% of overall paper; 60% of grade, i.e., 240 points) (due Oct 7).

Be sure to fully explain how and why. Secondly, in the Discussion Boards this week, you were to once again explore whether GOTV truly matters.
