Students will write a short essay comparing and contrasting Canadian and US politics
Topic: – Authority and Power of the Prime Minister compared to that of the President
MLA FORMAT please use Footnotes
the Chicago Manual of Style for citation of references
(DO not need introduction only the compare and contrast part)
Essays should highlight key similarities and differences between the two countries, and make an argument about the implications of the differences for politics in each country (that is, given these differences between the two countries, what difference in outcomes can we observe?) This is a short paper, so students will need to be selective about their main points rather than simply listing every possible similarity or difference.
– Essays should be 1000-1500 words in length and must use a minimum of 2 scholarly sources in addition to the course textbooks. News articles and other non-scholarly (e.g. non-peer-reviewed) sources should be counted as extra. All sources must be correctly cited and a bibliography included.
