Due before class: Sunday 5pm in Canvas: Memo #2. Please address the following questions (about 2 pages total, single spaced, Times New Roman, 12 point font, 1 inch margins) 1. Gerson and Damaske chapter a. Gerson and Damaske write about “strategic comparisons.” Reflecting on Binder and Kidder’s data sample (chapter 2, last week), discuss the ways they built in “strategic comparisons.” How can we build in strategic comparisons among students/universities that we are studying in California? 2. Binder and Kidder chapters a. Chapter 4 is about “the conservative channel.” Navigate to the websites of Turning Point USA, Prager U, and the American Enterprise Institute. From each site, select a symbol that you think is emblematic of the organization. Take a screen shot, paste it into your memo (not huge), and with a dispassionate researchers’ tone, provide a description of the symbol and why you chose it. Next, discuss the similarities and differences among the three organizations. b. Chapter 5 is about “the progressive channel.” Write a paragraph or two about how the progressive and conservative channels differ organizationally. c. Where at California universities might we recruit members from the conservative and progressive channels for interviews?
