During the first class, each student will pick one topic to write critically about during the semester. You will visit two think tanks, one more liberal and one more conservative. Be explicit about the think tanks you researched. Using the topic you want to explore, you will research both think tanks and discuss what they say about the issue. Then using class readings, you will analyze research done by both think tanks and compare and contrast the ideas presented by these think tanks. You will write five pages-doubled space paper based on your analysis. The paper will be due on the day of the topic you have chosen by 545pm.
