To comply with Gordon Rule guidelines, this course has a writing assignment. The ten (excluding works cited) page paper (double spacing) will offer a comparison between Florida’s legislative framework and another state of the student’s choosing. Possible sections might include, but are not limited to: elections, lawmaker responsibilities, committee structure, lawmaker composition, ethics, fundraising, scandals, partisanship in the process, impact on term limits or lack thereof, successes, failures, budgeting, history, and future changes. Remember the works cited page does not count towards your total page count. The grading of this assignment will be comprised of quality work (25%), length (25%), MLA format (25%), and evidence of research (25%).
