Civic Engagement Assignment
Below you will find a number of links to video and radio programs. For this assignment you will watch or listen to ONE program of your choosing. Alternatively, you may attend a zoom/ online meeting or event dealing with a political or community issue. Your city council person may be holing community meetings on COVID for example.
In 1 1/2 -2 pages you will reflect on the program. What was he program about ( what was the key issue or issues discussed). How does it relate to what we have studied during the course of the semester? What did you learn from the ideas presented? Reflecting critically, what do you think about this issue? If you choose to watch a briefing from an elected official, try to think about in in terms of federalism. What should the federal responsibility be? What should the State and local be? Do the state and local leaders reflect your expectations? If you watch the federal briefing what are your expectations from the Federal level? What do you think about what is being said? How well are the leaders ( the President, Vice President) and other public official presenting the issues, responding to reporters questions?
