Political Influences

Select an interest group from the following list and discuss its lobbying tactics in Congress:

1) AARP; 2) AFL-CIO; 3) AMA; 4) ABA; 5) National Association of Realtors. 

Post by 11:55 pm (ET) on Friday; include citations or URLs for your work, and provide substantive replies to the posts to your classmates by 11:55 pm (ET) on Sunday. Please see the rubric linked below for grading standards.

Assignment responses should be no less than 300 words and no more than about 500 words, while student replies should be no less than 150 words and no more than about 300 words.

Remember that a 300-word post and 150-word replies are the bare minimum requirements to earn a grade of a “C” or higher, but they will not automatically result in an “A” for a grade. Again, please review the rubric for details.

Wikipedia and Uncyclopedia are content free sources that anyone can edit, therefore they are not recognized in this class as reliable sources.

Please be sure that you have completed and proofread your work before posting it. You will not be able to delete or edit your work once you’ve submitted it, similar to the way exams and papers will not be returned for corrections after they have been submitted.
