How are theories of political participation and mobilization shaped by ideology?
Americans experience politics through ideology, a constant and critical filter in the democratic process. But ideological polarization deeply shapes politics from individual people to political parties, interest groups, and even federalism itself. Please write an essay that explains the theoretic and practical applications behind ideology’s inescapable place in modern politics. Explain the ways citizens develop ideology and discuss major features and issue focus of America’s current dominant political ideologies. Describe the extent to which ideology is shaped by social sorting. How are theories of political participation and mobilization shaped by ideology? Describe how political actors like parties, interest groups, and media use ideology to shape politics through participation and policy.
To function, America’s democratic republic requires corralling faction into an organized and participating electorate. Essential political activities in the United States include voting as well as joining political parties and interest groups. But each of these actions remains a contested and difficult process. Please write an essay that addresses the issues, methods, and theories of citizen political participation. What structural and policy rules shape America’s voting process, and how have those changes influenced participation and turnout? How have issues of civil rights affected participation? Explain how theories of voting affect citizens’ engagement with politics and show how political actors solicit and mobilize support to overcome various collective goods dilemmas.

When you find possible sources make sure that they contain a significant amount of information about your topic.
The Preliminary Bibliography
*Your preliminary bibliography should be submitted through Blackboard by 11:59 PM on October 16th
Your preliminary bibliography must consist of a minimum of four sources. All of these sources must come from the Jennings Library databases. If you would like to use a source from outside the databases (a book, scholarly article, or website), you must get my permission first.
The Task – How should you approach this assignment?
I recommend that you take the following steps as you prepare your preliminary bibliography:
1. Go to the Jennings Library home page and click on Articles & Databases near the bottom. Choose the History & Political Science databases.
2. The best databases for this project are Credo Reference, Gale E-books, and History Research Center. You should search in all of these databases in order to find the best sources.
3. Within each database search for your topic. If you are struggling to find sources in the databases, you should consult with me or with a librarian. We will be going to the library as a class on October 4th and you will have the opportunity to ask for assistance during that time as well.
4. When you find possible sources make sure that they contain a significant amount of information about your topic. Your goal is not to just find four sources – you want to find four good sources that will help you to write your paper.
5. Make sure that you note the citation for your sources so that you can list them correctly in your paper. The databases will usually generate a citation for you that you can just copy into a file.
Criteria for Success
How will you know if you are on the right track with your bibliography? Feel free to speak to me at any point if you have questions – I can also look over a list of sources to let you know if you are on the right track. You can also use the following checklist to make sure that your bibliography has all of the necessary components. You should also consult the bibliography grading rubric at the end of this document – this is what I will use to evaluate your bibliography.
Checklist for the preliminary bibliography

PLEASE READ EVERY THING
In the landmark case, Shelby County V. Holder (2013) , the US Supreme Court struck down major provisions of the 1965 Voting Rights Act relating to the procedure of “pre-clearance. “ Since the ruling, states like Texas, Georgia and North Carolina, can now make changes to their voting laws, such as photo ID requirements, that do not need to be pre-approved by the federal government. Supporters of this ruling say the pre-clearance rules are no longer needed and besides, states need new laws to protect against voter fraud. Opponents say that these laws are just a new form of voter suppression tactics that hit the poor and racial minorities hardest.
Based on this, your paper must meet the following strict content, format and submission requirements:
1. Describe the provisions (parts) of the Voting Rights Act that discuss the issue of “pre-clearance”.
2. Compare and contrast the views of those who think the federal government should have the power of “pre-clearance” and those who do not. Include at least three points of comparison.
3. Using evidence from any election in 2014 or later, argue whether or not you believe the federal government should have the power of “pre-clearance” relating to election laws. Include at least three reasons and/or examples to make your point.
4. List at least two things you could do in order to engage in the political process in pursuit of your position in (3) above.
5. Cite at least three (3) reliable, quality references within the body of the paper using the Chicago Manual of Style’s parenthetical citation style. One of the citations MUST come from the class textbook (I will do this part so just make sure thier is 3 cittations). You must have at least three parenthetical source citations in the body of the paper that exactly match the sources properly formatted in the Works Cited Page at the end of the paper.
1. Typed, 2-3 pages (not counting Works Cited Page), 12-point font, double-spaced (-20 if the paper is less than 2 full pages).
2. Your name, my name, POSC 2306, and the date.
3. A title is required, but a separate title page is not necessary.
4. An introduction with a thesis/statement of purpose in the first paragraph: “This paper will…” (-10 if this is not done)
5. A logically organized and sequenced body followed by a clearly stated conclusion.
6. Use of the Chicago Manual of Style’s parenthetical citation format. Students must be very careful and pay attention to details when they examine and cite internet sources.
7. Use of footnotes or endnotes is prohibited (-10 if this is done).
8. Using encyclopedias, like Wikipedia, Ballotpedia, history.com, kids.law.com, etc. is prohibited (-10 points).

This pair of US Military recruiting posters demonstrates the way that two branches of the military—the Marines and the Women’s Army Corps—borrowed techniques from advertising professionals to “sell” a romantic vision of war to Americans. These two images take different strategies: one shows Marines at war in a lush jungle, reminding viewers that the war was taking place in exotic lands, the other depicted women taking on new jobs as a patriotic duty.

In North Africa in 1942, British victory at El Alamein began pushing the Germans back. In November, the first American combat troops entered the European war, landing in French Morocco and pushing the Germans east while the British pushed west.7 By 1943, the Allies had pushed Axis forces out of Africa. In January, President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill met at Casablanca to discuss the next step of the European war. Churchill convinced Roosevelt to chase the Axis up Italy, into the “soft underbelly” of Europe. Afterward, Roosevelt announced to the press that the Allies would accept nothing less than unconditional surrender.
Meanwhile, the Army Air Force (AAF) sent hundreds (and eventually thousands) of bombers to England in preparation for a massive strategic bombing campaign against Germany. The plan was to bomb Germany around the clock. American bombers hit German ball-bearing factories, rail yards, oil fields, and manufacturing centers during the day, while the British RAF carpet-bombed German cities at night. Flying in formation, they initially flew unescorted, since many believed that bombers equipped with defensive firepower flew too high and too fast to be attacked. However, advanced German technology allowed fighters to easily shoot down the lumbering bombers. On some disastrous missions, the Germans shot down almost 50 percent of American aircraft. However, the advent and implementation of a long-range escort fighter let the bombers hit their targets more accurately while fighters confronted opposing German aircraft.
