SLO paper i wrote for my course
and post the comment from the instructor
Unfortunately this assignment was meant to have students present a USA Foreign -or- Domestic Policy which would effectively manage iniatives designed to combat/combine at least one of the 17UNSDG’s. Erradicating Poverty is of course a worthy endeavour, but I am asking anyone interested in this goal to approach it from the perspective of – how would a section of the United States government apply resources to accomplish this objective?
It might be considered "efficient application of resources" if the US government were to focus in a specific region of the world (or country, or city) with meaningful references (e.g. social, economic, or environmental policy) to build support with limited dispute of intention. I am also looking specifically for application of ‘textbook terms’ as mentioned in our course syllabus and the assignment description (e.g. crisis managment, structural defense, etc.) to judge whether students referenced our course textbook effectively.
I encourage you to reflect on your work, and my comments posted, to formulate an alternative approach, this time with the understanding that you would have access to any/all desired resources stemming from the USA federal government system (granted you were able to convince interested parties [i.e. members of USA Congress, state legislators, private sector leaders, etc.]). You don’t necessarily need to "re-write" the entire paper, simply incorporate a broadened perspective.
he needs a domestic or a foreign policy by the USA in addressing the goal of the paper
here is the full instruction
FOR THOSE OF YOU INTERESTED IN Domestic Policy
Determine/identify an area in the USA representing an entire region in the USA [e.g. Pacific Northwest, the South, the Midwest, etc.], state or territory [e.g. California, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, etc.] or a city [e.g. Flint, New Orleans, Dallas, etc.]). Determine/identify which approach is most effective to accomplish desired objective (social or economic policy), and explain: 1) your goal(s) [Agenda Setting]; 2) who would promote your policy proposal [Adoption]; 3) who would benefit; and 4) who would absorb accrued expenses?
Identification of the preferred application of resources (e.g. redistributive, distributive or regulatory) is also expected. The five steps below should be considered as the categories in which your policy proposal should be constructed.
FOR THOSE OF YOU INTERESTED IN Foreign Policy
Again, after reviewing the UN Sustainable Development Goals draft policy that would potentially resolve your concern(s) as it/they exists in another country or region around the world [e.g. of regions: Central America, Caribbean, South America, Africa, Middle East, Europe, Asia, Oceania, Islands, Antarctica, or the Artic]. Once this concern(s) has been identified, mention the role the USA will play in resolving the situation.
Determine which approach is most effective to accomplish desired impact (social or economic policy), and identify: 1) your goal [Agenda Setting]; 2) who would promote your policy proposal [Adoption]; 3) who would benefit; and 4) who would absorb accrued expenses?
Identification of the preferred method to apply resources (e.g. crisis, strategic, or structural defense) is also expected. The five steps below should be considered as the categories in which your policy proposal should be constructed.
***The (5) steps to policy formation are listed in our course textbook, so all students should be sure to refer to our textbook for more detailed information – Policymaking Process:
Agenda Setting – What’s your issue(s) of concern?
Formulation – What’s your approach to resolve your issue(s) of concern?
Adoption – Domestic Policy – Which elected officials would you approach to ask to endorse your legislative proposal [i.e. this also depends on where you would like your proposal to have the greatest impact ~ national level (members of USA Congress), state level (governor[s] and members of state legislature as per the state you would like the most changes to come about), county and local level (county commissioners, mayors, city council members)] ~ it is encouraged to research each decided upon elected official to get a better understanding as to whether they would in fact support your proposal or not + students are not limited to one group [i.e. there can be a combination of members of USA Congress working with state elected officials, with local representatives? I’m looking for names of representatives.
Implementation – which departments of the federal, state or local government(s) would be responsible for implementing your proposals [e.g. Labor, Treasury, Interior, State, Health and Human Services; and know each of these departments very often have either a similarly named department at the state level; and students are also encouraged to research each possible department to identify agencies and bureaus (e.g. Bureau of International Labor Affairs, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, Internal Revenue Service, Land Management, Ocean Energy Management, etc.)]? Again, names of selections.
Evaluation – When would you suggest/like to see people responsible for evaluating overall performance of your proposal come together and figure out what works to either apply consistent/additional resources, or end suggestions that do not work? Post a timeframe [e.g. every month, six months, annually, etc.].
