Unit II Mini Project
For this assignment you are tasked with completing a mini project that explores the inter-relationships between the various levels of government. Specifically, we see that a key concept in our federal system is inter-governmental relations, particularly financial relations among the three levels of government. Critically discuss these inter-governmental relations and note the importance of the increasing use of technology to improve efficiency. Add examples that support your discussion.
Do not let the term ‘mini’ fool you. You are still required to include the necessary components of a research paper, but you are also required to be concise and succinct.
Include the following:
Introduce the subject.
o Start with a broad scope and narrow to define the paper’s specific topic.
Create a thesis.
o The thesis should be a comprehensive statement that clearly states your position on the given subject.
Augment the thesis by introducing a minimum of three supporting points. Write the supporting paragraphs.
o These paragraphs correspond to the supporting points introduced in the thesis statement and should come in the same order. Each body paragraph should contain evidence from research to lend credibility to your argument.
Write the concluding paragraph.
o The conclusion should restate the thesis and summarize supporting points without being repetitive. Rather,
rephrase these elements in a concise and compelling manner. Be sure not to introduce new information in the conclusion.
Your assignment must:
Be a minimum of 750 words. This equates to approximately three pages.
Be typed, double-spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations
and references must follow APA format.
Include a cover page containing the tile of the assignment (Unit II-Mini Project), the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
