System of government that relies on Representative Democracy.

Our founding fathers created a system of government that relies on Representative Democracy. Many American voters do not understand exactly what our representatives do. Use the “Interactive Learning module” linked here: https://corg.iu.edu/resources/interactives/modules/EAS/stub.htm (Links to an external site.) to work the “Deciding How to Vote in Congress,” “Some Public Criticisms of Congress,” and The Dynamic Legislative Process” learning modules (see the menu on the left after you click on the link above). Using the material presented in each learning module, write a page or more on what you learned in each module. More information on what to include on each module in your essay is below:

How a Member Decides to Vote: In this module you need to report your experiences as you participated in the activity. Be specific. Describe the different viewpoints presented regarding the issue of the “flag amendment” that is presented in the module and report what you thought about those viewpoints. Be specific. For example your paper should report “Who said What and Why” regarding the issues. Your paper should also contain several sentences of analysis regarding each “Who said What and Why” presented in the module. How did you vote? Why? What viewpoints influenced you? Why? What did you learn? Did the activity cause you to become more concerned about the viewpoints of others? Do you have any comments about the process?

Public Criticisms of Congress: Describe the different Criticisms of Congress presented during the activity. Analyze each criticism and report your viewpoint regarding the criticism. Again, be specific. Each viewpoint presented must be reported, along with your viewpoint regarding the criticism.

The Dynamic Legislative Process: Compare the textbook version of how a bill becomes a law to the Dynamic Legislative Process presented in the module.

Research essay

Your analytical research essay will begin with a question in mind for which you do not have the answer or take a stance. In your research, you will gather information and then make a claim about a social movement (current or past). For example, a question about BLM could be, Have Blacks benefitted from the Black Lives Matter movement thus far? The answer to your question is your thesis and will drive the content of your research. Many researchers do not come to a conclusion about their topic until they’ve completed the research and drafted the essay because, through research and writing, you are still uncovering answers.

The central themes of the mystical experience

Perhaps the most prevalent—if not the most important—is the mystic’s experience of dying and being reborn. The journey through death followed by resurrection or rebirth was a central aspect of the mysteries at Eleusis, the philosophy of Plato, the initiation rites of the Pythagoreans, and initiation into the Church (symbolized in the rite of baptism and the spiritual transformation of shifting from false to true self discussed by Keating). Whether we express this process in the psychological language of a William James or in the emotive tones of a “born-again” Christian, the “death/rebirth” transformation seems to lie at the heart of religious life, and it is certainly at the core of the mystic’s experience. Write an essay that focuses on the death/rebirth imagery in a context of your choice. You may write about how a death experience transformed the life of a great saint or of a fictional character like Siddhartha. You may also find this process at work in a less traditionally religious context. Do you know of anyone who has gone through such an experience? Can you show a similarity of pattern between your example and the death/rebirth patterns we have observed in our readings and/or discussions?

Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement

Background
By now, everyone around the world has heard of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement or have participated in it. Black Lives Matter is a current social movement impacting our families, communities, cities, and the world. But, this is not the only movement that’s occurring worldwide or has happened in the past from which we still benefit. It is your turn to join a movement by investigating it through secondary research.
What is a Social Movement?
“Social movements are broad alliances of people who are connected through their shared interest in social change. Social movements can advocate for a particular social change, but they can also organize to oppose a social change that is being advocated by another entity. These movements do not have to be formally organized to be considered social movements. Different alliances can work separately for common causes and still be considered a social movement.” Read What is a Social Movement?
