The Political issue essays are expected to highlight both sides of a political issue. Students are allowed to take a political standpoint as long as both sides of the political issue are explored. For example, a student may want to explore the political issue of gun control. A student should provide a very brief historical perspective of gun control and explore both the pro gun control and the anti gun control political perspectives. Finally, students can argue whether they feel that gun control is appropriate or under which conditions and circumstances that gun control is acceptable or unacceptable. MUST BE 1,000 WORDS!!
