However, in-text citations should be included where required and you should certainly keep track of your sources for your final project submission.

To complete Part 1 of your Policy Analysis Project, submit the following information in written format using the headers and subheaders provided below. Your title page, table of contents, and reference page will not be assessed and you are not required to submit it at this time. However, in-text citations should be included where required and you should certainly keep track of your sources for your final project submission. We will discuss methods of citations in class which will be dependent upon your final project plan: written report or class presentation. Your work will be assessed on writing style (neutral/ojective writing, grammar, syntax, spelling), thoroughness of information provided, and demontsrated ability to think critically and creatively. A rubric for Part 1 will be posted to Canvas soon.
