Your first assignment is to draft a profile of your member of Congress. The profile should be written as if the member him/herself actually did the writing (so it should be written in the first person (for example: “I am a member of Congress from the second district….”). Your profile should include the following information: The member’s personal background (age, race, gender, religion, education, occupation, legislative style, etc.) The location, size, and population demographics of the member’s congressional district The main industry or enterprise within the member’s district, if any The member’s primary concerns and issue positions (stances on public policy) The length of time the member has serviced in Congress You should be able to find all of this information on the representative’s webpage and/or through simple Google searches. Do not copy material directly from the web—paraphrase and use citations. The profile should be one-page long (double-space, 12 pt font).
