Activity: A Policy You Would Change
This brief activity will serve as preparation for your last assignment, which is due next week.

If you could change any U.S. domestic policy today, what would it be? For this activity, choose a policy you would like to change, submit a brief explanation of the policy you would like to change, and identify three references to support this policy change. This is the same policy you will use to write your Final Reflection assignment (due next week).

Your policy choice will need to be approved by your instructor before you begin your Final Reflection assignment. Approval will be provided through your rubric score for this activity, after it has been submitted. If your policy and/or references are not approved you will need to read the instructor feedback and provide an updated policy and/or references to be approved before submitting your final assignment.

Here are just a few examples of domestic public policies to choose from:

The environment.
Health care.
Social welfare.
Civil rights.
Death penalty.
Gun control.
Assisted suicide.
Affirmative action.
Minimum wage.
Drug legalization.
Hate crimes.
Capital punishment.
After selecting a policy you would change, identify references to support the policy change. Using skills you have learned previously in the course, search for articles from reputable sources that support your views, illustrate the severity or urgency of the need for change, discuss current events that make you think about the seriousness of the issue, etc. Remember to review the news sources provided earlier in the course and ensure any references selected outside of that list are reliable.

For your submission, create a Word document with your chosen policy and provide one short paragraph explaining why that is a policy you would like to change. Also include three references to support your policy change. This does not need to be formatted in SWS but will need to be formatted that way for the final assignment.
