Final Paper Prep

Your Final Paper in the class will involve analyzing any of the problems, challenges, and lessons regarding federal-state cooperation and intergovernmental cooperation in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, which devastated not only the city of New Orleans but also many of the Gulf States.

Review Case Study 5 in American Intergovernmental Relations: A Fragmented Federal Polity, “System Failure: The Respnse to Hurricane Katrina.” (PDF document attached)

After reviewing the Case Study, submit a three-page paper prep that contains the following information:

  • Topic:      Identify any aspect of the response to Hurricane Katrina of interest to      you. You must consider political, economic, or administrative elements of      the federal and state responses to Hurricane Katrina. For example, you      could focus on the evacuation of stranded New Orleans residents; the      provision of emergency food and medical equipment in the immediate      aftermath of the hurricane; coordinating and implementing temporary      housing (e.g., FEMA trailers) to those displaced by Hurricane Katrina;      economic assistance provided to cities, towns, and villages along the Gulf      Coast; the establishment of law and order in the city of New Orleans.

  • Thesis:      Develop your thesis statement. This will become the point or perspective      you will argue or prove in the paper. Please see the Ashford-approved      handbook, or The Writing Center, for information on how to develop a solid      thesis. A draft of your thesis should be included for feedback from the      instructor.

  • Annotated      Bibliography: For this paper you should conduct research in peer-reviewed      journals or other journals that are considered to have reliable      information (do not rely solely on sources from the secular press, e.g.,      Time, Newsweek, although you may include these resources in your paper).      In addition to the textbook, you need at least three articles from      professional scholarly journals and not popular Internet sites (if you do      find something on the World Wide Web, it must be authored and/or be a      reliable source). In these journals, the research and information is      either reviewed by an editorial team (such as for the Harvard Business      Review) or a group of peers (such as in many journals you find through the      Ashford University Library).

The purpose of the Annotated Bibliography is to assist you in developing research analysis skills including: critical thinking, writing, and literature research skills. The Annotated Bibliography should include the following information for each source:

  • Name of the      article, including the complete bibliographic citation, using APA format.
  • Summary/abstract      of the article – called an annotation. It is sometimes helpful to ask      yourself the following questions in synthesizing the information:
  • Who wrote      the article? (Author(s))
  • What was      done in the article? (For example, an experimental study investigating the      interaction of short term memory and attention)
  • How was the      study done?
  • What were      the findings? (Identify the major results of the study)
  • Contributions?      (New findings, applications, etc.)

Submit your three-page paper (not including title and reference pages). Your paper must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the approved APA style guide and must cite at least three scholarly sources in addition to the textbook.

The Paper

  • Must be      three double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references      pages) and formatted according to APA style. Must include a separate title page with      the following:

  • Student’s       name
  • Course name       and number

  • Must use at      least three scholarly sources in addition to the course text.
  • The Scholarly, Peer Reviewed, and      Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.)Links to an      external site. table offers additional guidance on appropriate      source types. If you have questions about whether a specific source is      appropriate for this assignment, please contact your instructor. Your      instructor has the final say about the appropriateness of a specific      source for a particular assignment.
  • Must      document all sources in APA style.
  • Must include      a separate references page that is formatted according to APA style
