This is an institutional requirement.
Please write an essay based on the following prompt. I think (hope) the instructions are clear enough. To maintain comparability, I'm not supposed to give you any more instructions or clarification.
You *should* get full credit for this essay. All you have to do is follow the instructions and you get full credit. I will not be grading the content of the essay. Here's how I'll grade it:
– Is it turned in by the deadline as shown in the course schedule.
– Is it two pages long?
– Does it use appropriate formatting?
– Does it use appropriate grammar?
– Does it *not* plagiarize?
– Is it on topic?
– Is it a sincere effort to provide a thoughtful response?
If you do all that you get full credit.
OK. Here's the prompt you should write about:
A Federalist representative democracy requires both personal responsibility and social responsibility of its citizens through personal involvement in the democratic process and the understanding that there are many interests to consider in a democracy. Both personal responsibility and social responsibility may be reflected in the process of voting.
Please write a 2-page essay discussing whether and how a) the act of voting is the personal responsibility of every citizen, and b) citizens have a social responsibility to consider how his or her individual vote will affect the diverse interests of the broader community.
The essay should be written in Times New Roman, 12-point font, one-inch margins, double-spaced, with college level grammar, structure and spelling. Please upload to the appropriate link under the ‘assignments’ tab on eCampus.
