Thank you very much. You did an excellent job on the power point presentation. Thanks!
I. Assignment: You are to write a 2-2.5 page policy brief following the guidelines explained here. Use 12 point type, double spaced, Times New Roman or Ariel font, with 1” margins. For this first assignment, you get to choose the policy you will analyze in this assignment. However, in general, follow these guidelines:
1. Make sure your proposal is for a PUBLIC policy. It can be directed at any level of government, but your proposal has to be about some problem, issue, situation, that affects some (larger or smaller) PUBLIC;
2. Make sure you direct your proposal to the APPROPRIATE Actor for this proposal. Identify the person(s) who you are making your pitch to. BE as specific as you can be: e.g, TO: Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House; President Donald Trump; Governor Rick Scott., etc.
3. IMPORTANT: Your proposal should contain a proposed (course of) ACTION. Be as specific as you can make it, and don’t just propose an outcome or state of affairs you would like to see happen. It you want some change in school performance outcomes, for example, TELL THE SCHOOL BOARD CHAIR/MEMBERS WHAT THEY SHOULD DO – IN AS CONCRETE TERMS AS YOU CAN.
NOTE: Spelling, grammar, word choice, etc. count. Be careful, read what you have written. Make sure it looks and reads like a professional document. No “emotional rhetoric” or slogans. You want to look intelligent and knowledgeable to the government person you are presenting this to.
