Write a Letter to Your Representative
Please respond to EACH of the following discussion topics and submit them to the discussion forum as a single post. Your initial post should be 75-150 words in length. Then, make at least two thoughtful responses to your fellow studentsâ€™ posts. If you havenâ€™t recently, please review the Rules of Discussion.
Using what you have learned this week and in the course so far, write a letter to either your Representative, Senator, or one of your State Legislators concerning a specific public policy.
State your issue position clearly in this letter and then present an argument for why that elected official should support your position on that issue.
Post your letter and who you would send it to in the discussion board.
For your follow up posts, critique the arguments of your peersâ€™ letters. How might they strengthen their argument?
Though not required, feel free to actually send these letters to your representatives and share what that experience was like. Did you get any response? What was that response? Was it only a form letter?
. The initial post should be 75 to 150 words, but may go longer depending on the topic. If you use any source outside of your own thoughts, you should reference that source. Include solid grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, and spelling.
