You will conduct research on a particular issue, drawing on scholarly sources, including peer-reviewed journal articles. This research will form the basis for your argument to the policymaker.
You will write a brief script for the call(s) you are going to make to the policy maker. And include it in your paper.
You will write a 5-7 page paper summarizing your efforts. You will provide a description of the research you conducted, and the conclusion you came to regarding needed policy change. You will describe who you decided to call and why, and you will also attach the script for your phone calls. Finally, you will reflect on your efforts. What was it like making the calls? How did the person answering the phone respond? Did you receive a response from
the policymaker? If you had to do it all again, what would you do differently? The bibliography should use APA formatting for in-text citations and references. If you are not familiar with APA reference formatting, you can find additional information and examples at ttp://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/07/

Do not rely on auto-formatting through Google Scholar or other
online resources as they are frequently wrong
