This week, we continue completing the worksheets in preparation for the Final Paper. It is recommended that you review the Learning Activity assignments and review the Final Paper prompt before beginning this assignment.
A model POL201 Final Paper Guide is provided for you to download and utilize when completing your Final Paper. One of the most important structures in the national government is federalism. Understanding the relationship between local, state, and national level governments is critical in being able to understand all of the key features of our national government. Describe an advantage and a disadvantage to a national policy that an agency in the federal bureaucracy must implement. In addition, recommend an option to maintain the advantage and one to improve the disadvantage.

Develop several detailed paragraphs regarding your second main point using the Week Two Learning Activity Worksheet.
You are required to develop four paragraphs that explain one advantage and one disadvantage of a national policy that is implemented by one agency of the federal bureaucracy, as well as options to maintain the advantage and improve the disadvantage must also be addressed.
A reference list of at least two scholarly resources with full APA citations is required. While your textbook can be utilized as a source, it does not count towards your two sources for this assignment. Two new sources should be utilized each week to meet the minimum of eight required sources for the final. By finding and supporting your material with these sources each week, you will have the research necessary to construct a strong Final Paper.
Be sure that the sources you are utilizing to support your ideas are valid, reliable, and not overly bias.

Below is the prompt for the final paper. This is for REVIEW ONLY
America’s Democracy: Your Report Card
The primary goal of your last assignment is to critically analyze the primary features of the American national government. The results of your analysis will indicate what you have learned over the last five weeks. In order to accomplish this task, it is important to critically evaluate the key facets of our American democracy.
You have been preparing for this final assignment each week by constructing a detailed outline of the Final Paper’s main points through the weekly Learning Activities. In addition, you have read the course text and course readings, reviewed videos, and researched additional material for each week’s assignments and for this paper. This week, you will put all of those outlines, readings, reviews, and research together into a one summative paper.
As we wrap up our course, reflect back on what you have learned about the key structures, systems, roles, and processes that embody our national government. Focus on the strengths and weaknesses, advantages and disadvantages, and positive and negative impacts of these aspects of our democracy. Use what you have learned so far to evaluate our national government and recommend ways to enhance what works and repair what is not working well. It is important to understand that this paper is not simply a cut and paste of your four Learning Activities. While the research you have completed can serve as a strong base it is important that you implement any comments from the instructor, as well as further expand on the material. Appropriate transitions and headings are needed to ensure a cohesive paper.
