FRCL 10200 - DECISION 2012
DECISION 2012 ~ If you are interested in Ohio and U.S. politics, this colloquium is your opportunity to study the process up close and personal. We will discuss Presidential and Senatorial and House of Representatives races, as well as local issues in theory and practice, as we critically identify, evaluate, debate, and analyze America’s and Ohio's economic and global political issues, which continue to swirl around us. We need to learn who the candidates will be and what they stand for. What are their different positions on important issues? What are their values? Do they deserve our trust? Do they deserve our votes? How do we follow a political campaign? How do we do our homework and become informed voters? How do we decide for whom to vote in November? Why do we vote? Our planned class activities include a weekly review of political issues at the state, national, and global levels; we will also follow campaign coverage on media including newspapers, television, and weekly magazines. We will focus on a few races: the election of an Ohio governor; the election of a U.S. Senator from Ohio; and the Northeast Ohio congressional races.
