your research paper will be based on the research question that I approved in the Week 6
Discussion Forum.
I know it can be hard to know how to organize your paper. The following are questions that
may help you do your research and/or structure your paper. Not every questions is applicable
to every paper topic.
1. Give a brief history of your topic. What interests you in particular about this history? This
history can include Presidents that precede the one that you are discussing.
2. Why does this topic matter to the study of the Presidency? Is it still meaningful today?
3. Did your topic/idea/area increase or decrease the powers of the president? Explain.
4. Did your topic show the use of powers in a new way? Have other presidents followed your
president’s example?
5. What can modern presidents expect from this area in terms of their power?
