Question description

in the reflective essay, you will discuss your preconceptions about American government and politics; what you did and did not know about American government and politics before completing the course. You will explain the concepts of American government and politics and will also explain the institutions of government, including but not limited to, Congress, the Executive Branch and the bureaucracy, the courts, interest groups, and the media, and the role they play in politics and the American government system. The purpose of this essay is for you to make sense of the course and the course materials in the context of the real world and your role in the political process. The main audience for this paper is yourself, so you will be expected to honestly explore your views, be open to new information, analyze the course materials, and demonstrate a full understanding of the issues that most impact American government and politics.

Your paper should include the following four elements:


Discuss the preconceptions you brought to the class and explain how they have been challenged

by the course.


Explain what government and politics are. What do they “do”, who/ what is involved in the process, what purpose does government serve, etc.?


Based upon your own experiences and what was discussed in class, are there things in American government and politics that you think can be improved upon or changed? In other words, what works and what doesn’t? What recommendations for improvement/ change would you make?


Explain how you might put these recommendations into action. In doing so, make sure you reevaluate your preconceptions. How have they changed as a result of this course? How might these changes affect how you view government and politics in the future?


  1. The paper should be a minimum of 1000 words. A paper of less than the minimum word count will be marked down;
  2. Your essay should reference the notes used in class and the textbook and should be cited appropriately; you do not need to include a works cited page unless you use other sources

Government and Politics
Before I came to this class I had a certain preconception of distrust in regards to the
government and I remained hostile to it. In my perception, I felt my elected politicians never
cared for their constituents and only served for their own personal interests. I believed that the
media misled the public by feeding the citizens with wrong and unhelpful information. In
accordance to this preconception, I believed that the court systems in the USA could be easily
influenced by politicians in order to rule in their favor on pertinent cases. However, my
preconceptions have been highly challenged in this class. I have realized the vast importance of
the media and how it plays a key and important role in the development of the government as
well as the decision-making process of the politicians and the daily activities that are carried out
by the government. Currently, in the United States, media is one of the most powerful tools in
comparison to the legislative and judiciary tools at our disposal. My preconception of distrusting
the government has diminished since taking this class as I have understood and appreciated the
role of government processes. Additionally, I now understand how the government is constantly
being upheld and checked by other organizations and government...
