readings in every module/week. The student must critique ideas in light of a biblical worldview. The summaries must be at least 100–125 words, and the reflections must be at least 150–200 words. E. Book Critique and Policy Review Papers (2) After reading Simons et al. and Cusimano Love, the student will write two 5–7- page papers on the information in the books. Both papers will be divided into 4 sections. For the first section of each paper, the student will summarize the book. In the second and third sections of each paper, the student will critique and evaluate the book. In the final section, the student will apply the reading in the book to a current event in Public Policy. In the final section, the student must do more than identify a current issue and state how the book relates to the issue. The student must provide background on the issue, note the relevant themes in the book, clearly analyze the issue in light of themes from each book, and provide a policy recommendation. Page 2 of 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
