You will be conducting research on a current U.S. foreign policy issue. You will create a presentation about your issue using Powerpoint, Google Slides, Prezi, or some other presentation making software. Aside from your presentation you will also be writing a letter to a U.S. politician about your topic including your stance and a recommendation for action. You are encouraged to send this letter to a politician you choose but are not required to do so. Your letter needs to be at least 500-1000 words. Use at least 2 credible sources. Below are some issues to choose from if you do not have one of your own.
Issues you may choose from, but you may choose a foreign policy issue of your own:
- Foreign Drone Strikes
- Nuclear Weapons in Iran
- Nuclear Weapons in North Korea
- Somali/Nigerian Pirates
- Drug Cartels-Mexico
- Climate Change
- US in Afghanistan
- Food Security
- Sex Trafficking
When making your presentation, include answers to the following: What are the current events associated with the issue you chose? How does the issue affect the U.S.? What is the U.S. doing about it currently? What is the President’s stance regarding the issue? Does the issue have partisan sides? Which party is in support of it and which against, if so?
