Explain the Federal Reserve Bank’s response to the “Great Recession.” Did it work?
Develop and clearly define their ideas through writing. Ethically integrate sources of various kinds into their writing.
Compose texts through drafting, revising, and completing a finished
product. Express themselves through their writing by posing questions, making
original claims, and coherently structuring complex ideas.
Revise their writing for greater cogency and clarity.
Utilize adopted communication modes and documentation styles of
specific disciplines (MLA, APA, Chicago, CBE, etc.) For this paper, I
require the students to use the Chicago format.
This is a large subject. I suggest you narrow your paper to one or two responses
and examine these more thoroughly, rather than a shotgun approach that tries to
examine all the Fed Responses. Note the Fed’s responses are related to the
material covered in the latter portion of the text. You should read ahead when
doing your research. These are secondary research papers. Consequently, I expect to see at
minimum 10 sources. Acceptable sources include books, journals, periodicals,
and professional websites like the Federal Reserve Bank, and “White-Papers.”
Wikipedia, Bright-Bart, and the Huffington post are not acceptable.
All papers must include proper citations otherwise the material is plagiarized. I
expect that all students at this stage should have a good handle on footnoting
and creating a bibliography.
