The final draft of your proposal is due Sunday, Nov 17, at 11:59 PM. The formal proposal language and all parts of the proposal document must be complete by that time.
You should have a full draft of your proposal done NOW and you should be working on refining it so that it is complete and finished by Nov 17. Once we get into the rating and platform discussion period, you will not be allowed to edit your proposal, so make sure you work on it now.
The formal proposal should be SPECIFIC about what you are asking the state TO DO (make or change a law, create a regulation, start a program, implement a policy, etc.), not just “people should do such and such.”
A first draft of your proposal is due Nov 10, but you should be continuously working on your proposal now. Don’t wait until the last moment to update your proposal document -- add and revise in the document as you go. Your draft must include at least 3 good consultations.
Three Potential Solutions due this Sunday (October 27)
Up to now we have asked you to focus on identifying and exploring a problem, but now you finally get to focus on coming up with solutions. This step provides you the opportunity to show your ingenuity and breadth of perspective in addressing the problem at hand. No later than this Sunday, October 27, we ask that you detail three different potential solutions to the problem you’ve identified for your persona, and describe the solutions in the appropriate place in your proposal document. Please describe each solution in a paragraph or approximately 5 bullet points -- you don’t need to go into every detail, but there should be enough explanation so that others can understand how the solution will work and think about its pros and cons.
We have confirmed the date and time for the MSC hearing in Lansing! The Fall 2019 MSC Platform will be presented to the Special Commission for Civic Engagement at the state capitol in Lansing on Thursday, December 12, from 11:00am to 12:30pm. Representative Sarah Anthony will preside as chair.
Attendance at the meeting is mandatory for all EDUC 362 students, whether or not you end up presenting a proposal. Details will be provided as the date gets closer.
Starting tomorrow, please look at other caucus members’ artifacts and offer feedback in the comments area below the various proposal pages -- the Topic Coordinators will be contributing comments as well.
