Before beginning this assignment you will need to watch the following videos:
Sample policy issues: sales/use of marijuana, constitutional carry/no license required, cell phone use while driving, gender-based bathroom use, sanctuary cities etc..
Explain that issue in detail. Once you have explained the issue, provide information on where your representative in the Senate stands on the issue. Where do you stand on the issue? What do you believe should be done? What might be an alternative solution? Thinking about your ideas on the issue, who might object to your viewpoint and what might their objections be? Once you’ve laid out their objections, respond to them, and explain, with logic, why your perspective is correct and your opponents’ objections are mistaken.
