In this assignment you will be writing a description of at least 200 words on the topic you have chosen for your research paper and why to submit for my approval. Pick something that interests you and you wish to learn more about.
Topics can be:
people, past or present, who have played an important role in the shaping of our government in Texas. Note, this does not mean a person that was merely historically significant to Texas, but rather was or is significant to Texas government.
events in history that had a major impact on Texas government.
concepts, such as Federalism or the primary election system.
issues that impact our politics and our government in Texas, such as oil and gas development or abortion.
anything of your choosing with my approval.
In addition to the 200 word synopsis, you are required to locate and provide citation for at least three research sources you intend to use for your project. Sources should be of scholarly worthiness and trustworthy; such as journal articles, books, or peer reviewed research. Wikipedia and many other internet sources are not acceptable.
