Ashford 3: - Week 2 - Discussion





Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.



Policy and Your Life

Prepare: Prior to beginning work on this discussion question, read Chapters 3 and 4 in American Government and review the Week Two Instructor Guidance In addition, watch the videos provided on federalism: Quick Study of Federalism Part 1, Quick Study of Federalism Part 2, and Quick Study of Federalism Part 3

 Reflect: The U.S. government's expansive role in public policy is caught in a swirl of conflicting crosscurrents. On the one hand, popular expectations about government's responsibility to solve problems often exceed the capacity of state and local authorities to respond effectively. On the other hand, policies developed at the national level may not sufficiently reflect the great diversity of interests across the U.S. to be effective at the local level. Moreover, the search for effective policy is further complicated by theoretical debates about the constitutional framework of federalism, that is, what limits on national power can be derived from the Tenth Amendment?

 Write: Select a policy or piece of legislation that directly impacts your current or future profession (i.e., your major). In your initial post, identify your profession or future profession, define federalism, and then select a specific piece of legislation (Click here for examples) that will directly impact it. Discuss the federalism challenges that the policy you have selected is creating or facing. For example:

  • If you are an education major, how are local, state, and federal government policies affected by the Every Student Succeeds Actor some other piece of education-related legislation?
  • If you are a criminal justice major, how does recent legalization of marijuana in some states affect local, state, and federal marijuana laws?
  • If you are a business major, how does the insurance mandate in the Affordable Care Act affect local, state, and national businesses and their employees?
  • If you are a political science major, how has the recent Citizenâs United ruling affected the amount of money available for campaigns at the local, state, or federal levels?

Fully respond to all parts of the prompt and write your response in your own words. Your initial must be at least 300 words. Support your position with at least two of the assigned resources required for this discussion, and/or peer reviewed scholarly sources obtained through the AU Library databases. Please be sure that you demonstrate understanding of these resources, integrate them into your argument, and cite them properly in-text and in a references list at the end of the post.

 Respond to Peers: By Day 7, respond to at least two of your classmates' initial posts. Your peer responses should be substantive and at least 100 words each. As your reply to your classmates, attempt to take the conversation further by examining their claims or arguments in more depth or responding to the posts that they reply to you with. Keep the discussion on target and try to analyze things in as much detail as you can. For instance, you might consider reflecting on why the legislation selected by one of your classmateâs is impacted differently than the one you selected.

  Carefully review the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate this Discussion Thread.

Ashford 3: - Week 2 - Journal



Week Two Journal


Prepare: Prior to beginning your journal this week, complete all course readings and assigned videos, review the Week Two Instructor Guidance, and the Discussion, âPolicy and Your Life.â It would also be helpful to review last weekâs readings.

Reflect: Once you have completed these assignments think about how American politics have and could affect your career aspirations. The Founding Fathers created a governmental structure that affects almost every aspect of our lives even today. For instance, if you are a criminal justice major, what parts of the U.S. Constitution are applicable to what you are learning in your major? If you are a business major, which branch of government â executive, legislative, or judicial â has, or will have, the greatest influence on your business ambitions? If you are a healthcare major, how does separation of powers in the U.S. government affect the operations of most economic, social, and political processes throughout the United States?

Also, think about how federalism and the U.S. Congress have affected or will affect your life. The federal structure ensures that there is a clear line between local, state, and federal government regulations, policies, and oversightâsometimes! Think about how federal statues affect your work or will affect your work in the future. Does Congress have oversight of any of the processes or products in your workplace? Do the government regulations, policies, and oversight sometimes conflict with local or state regulations, policies, and oversight?

Write: As you reflect on the information you learned this week, write in your journal, based on your current major and/or desired job, two detailed paragraphs about the following:

  • How a federal policy affects your current or desired workplace.
  • What role Congress has played in establishing workplace conditions in your current or desired job.

Your journal response must be a minimum one page, double-spaced. Justify your conclusions with facts and persuasive reasoning. Fully respond to all parts of the question and write your response in your own words. Outside research and references are not required for journal assignments, but if you choose to utilize outside sources they must be correctly cited utilizing APA format both within the body of your journal and include a full reference page

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
