Research Paper Texas & Federal Government Fall, 2019 Professor John Ben Sutter, M.A., J.D. Whether you are studying Texas or Federal Government this semester, Texas politics and way of life is impacted by the differences between rural and urban life. This paper focuses on the politics of rural versus urban life in Texas. We measure the quality of life based on medical care, economic opportunity, and political participation in rural versus urban life in Texas. Your research paper focuses on the following questions: How is the quality of life different in rural versus urban Texas? Does the quality of life impact whether an area votes Republican or Democratic? How different is medical care, economic opportunity, and voting trends in rural versus urban Texas? Do these indicators of the quality of life impact how Texans vote? How different is rural politics from urban politics in Texas as indicated by the differences in voting trends—Republican versus Democratic—in rural versus urban counties? Does support for the border wall illustrate these differences? Does support for Republicans and Democrats differ depending on where voters live? Health care is a tremendous political issue. Is there a crisis in rural Texas? Use the following 18 articles and sources in your research paper. YOU MUST USE AT LEAST 12 OF THE FOLLOWING SOURCES IN YOUR PAPER. (If you’re writing a paper to submit in both my GOVT 2306 and GOVT 2305 courses in which you’re registered you must use all 18.) You need not use any other articles than these listed here. You should watch the videos and use the information contained in these news stories to support your paper.

Do not offer your own opinions directly in the body of your paper. Write exclusively in the third person, not the first person. You may present the arguments by scholars, experts, journalists, politicians and others in a formal, substantiated, documented manner. You are writing objectively, telling both sides of the issue. Examine the issue objectively and report on what you have found. Like a lawyer in court proving a case, you will use evidence presented by experts and witnesses. Lawyers in a case do not testify themselves. They must let their witnesses prove the case. You will be doing much the same thing. Let the sources tell the story. You may, however, state your own opinions in the first person (e.g., “I believe, based upon my research and analysis, that….”) in the conclusion of your paper (the last paragraph or two of your paper). Be rational, not emotional in your writing. Remember that this is a research paper, not a list of questions and answers, not a list of bulleted points to address. DO NOT insert subheadings in your paper. Also, DO NOT use illustrations or charts in your paper. You are telling the story of this issue and the surrounding politics and controversy. You are acting as a newspaper reporter would in writing an objective article over viewing in general what happened. Again, do not put headings and subheadings in your paper because you don’t have room for it in such a short paper. Let your development and transition tell the reader what area you’re addressing. DOCUMENTATION, CITATION: Write and type the paper on Microsoft Word or any word processing software and then copy and paste it to this assignment page. Do not email me the paper as an attachment. Microsoft Word is available on college computers in labs on campus. You MUST, of course, document each use of a source in your paper. THIS MEANS EACH AND EVERY TIME YOU USE THE WORDS OR UNIQUE INFORMATION FROM A SOURCE, YOU MUST TELL THE READER EXACTLY WHERE YOU GOT IT, GIVING CREDIT/REFERENCE TO THE SOURCE (ARTICLE) FROM WHICH THE INFORMATION CAME. YOU MUST MAKE SUCH A REFERENCE WITHIN THE TEXT OF THE PAPER AFTER YOU QUOTE AN ARTICLE OR PARAPHARSE AN ARTICLE. You must cite the article information and the URL for the article. You document (or “cite”) the source you’re using anytime you use a direct quote from the source (exact words with “quotation marks” around them), or when you paraphrase an idea or words from the source. It is acceptable to use the parenthetical method of citation where you put the author or source in parentheses after the quote or idea in the body of your paper. This is the MLA style of documentation. The Turabian or Chicago Style of documentation is no more or less difficult that the MLA which you may have used in writing your English term papers. It is simply different and is the preferred method generally in social studies, particularly government and history. In fact, you can look at your government textbook for examples on how to use the Turabian method of citation. Your textbook authors use the endnote method of the Turabian style to document the sources they use in each chapter. Look in any chapter and when you see a quote or where the author has paraphrased material, there will be a superscript number at the end of the sentence. The numbers progress sequentially through the chapter as he cites his sources. Then at the end of the chapter he shows, in sequential order to match the superscript numbers in the chapter, the sources he used in that chapter. If you look carefully at how your textbook uses this form of documentation, you should have little trouble mastering it yourself. If you need further assistance, look to the following Web pages for aid with the Turabian style: http://library.austincc.edu/help/TURABIAN http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/DocChiNotes.html You are not required to use the Turabian documentation method (although you are absolutely required to appropriate cite and document all material from an article used in your paper). If you are, instead, very familiar with the MLA or APA form of documenting (citing) sources (using the parenthetical method with a “Works Cited” page or pages at the end of the paper, that would be fine. Just do it correctly and consistently and document properly all material used from your sources. If you choose not to use the Turabian documentation method and need assistance or a refresher for MLA or APA, look to the following Web pages for help: MLA: http://library.austincc.edu/help/MLA/ APA: http://library.austincc.edu/help/APA/ All three formats: http://www.lkwdpl.org/study/research/footnote.htm The main point is, no matter how you do it, no matter what method you use, you MUST document (cite, refer to, point out) where you got the information you put in your paper each and every time you use the words from a source or the information from a source. If you do not cite to your sources, if you do not document where you got the material you use in your paper, that is plagiarism, and you will receive a grade of zero for your paper. If you are enrolled in both Texas and Federal Government classes with Prof. Sutter, your paper must be 3000 words and may be submitted in both 2305 and 2306 classes. The body of the paper, not including a “Works Cited” or “Endnote” page, should be at least 2000 words long (if enrolled in either my 2305 or 2306 classes but not both). Points will be deducted for on any paper that does not meet the 2000 word minimum. Five (5) points for every twenty-five words under 2000 words. Ten (10) points off for not placing your final word count at the end of the paper. You must include a word count at the end of the paper—like this: This paper contains 1305 words …
