What is the most powerful branch of government in American politics today?
Using a diverse combination of sources, provide evidence for your answer. Sources of evidence can include our textbook, the ScreenCasts, outside readings, and current-day political examples. Your paper must include the following pieces of analysis:
(1)    A clear articulation of the powers that the branch you select has, including any “checks” over other branches.
(2)    Pick two current-day political examples that showcase the power(s) of the branch you select. At least one of these examples must include multiple branches interacting with one another. It is your job to dissect this interaction and identify how/why your branch is more powerful than the others. A “current-day” political example should be something that transpired within the past 12 months.
(3)    Finally, identify and describe two characteristics of today’s society – be it political or social – that set the stage for the branch you select to be more powerful than the others. The word “characteristic” is purposefully being left open-ended to allow for creative thinking.
The use of outside sources is acceptable and welcomed; however, such sources must be used intelligently. Be sure to give appropriate credit when using the words and/or ideas of others. A works cited page is required (any citation style can be used as long as you remain consistent). You must also use “in-text” citations (also referred to as “parenthetical citations”).
•    When citing a direct quote, be sure to put those words in quotations. Follow up the direct quote with a parenthetical citation (Last name of source, year, page #).
•    When citing a general idea, no quotations are needed. Place your parenthetical citation at the end of the sentence in which the general idea is being conveyed. If the idea spans multiple sentences, place the citation at the end of the final sentence in which the idea is conveyed.
Grading Criteria
Your grade will be based on your performance in the following four areas: (1) the strength of your argument; (2) the creativity/applicability of your examples and analysis; (3) the overall presentation of your answer (how well your arguments/paper flow together); and (4) your ability to clearly articulate main points in your own words. Please proofread your work. The length of the paper should be approximately 5-6 pages double-spaced (Times New Roman 12-point font), excluding the works cited. All papers will automatically run through the SafeAssign anti-plagiarism detection system upon submission.
