Research Paper Assignment
You will be required to write an 8-10 page research paper based on at least one chapter of your choosing from the A People’s History of the United States text. You will use a chapter of your choosing, more if you choose to, from the Zinn text as a historical basis for understanding a modern-day issue(s).

Your goal is to show how historical information from the Zinn text helps to explain and potentially feeds into a modern-day issue(s). You must incorporate a minimum of 8 scholarly sources (i.e., journal articles). The timely completion of the paper will count towards course participation. See course schedule and check canvas.

Present a discussion regarding the justifications and continued use of the Exclusionary Rule. Specifically, identify two (2) reasons for its continued use and two (2) reasons to stop using the rule. We know that the Exclusionary Rule is not in the Constitution, but rather it is a rule of law set by the Supreme Court. It could be changed by any Supreme Court now or in the future. Explain whether you would like to see the rule changed, and why. You may write this section in 1st person. Finally, we know that, just because evidence may be excluded at trial due to the operation of the Exclusionary Rule, the prosecution does not necessarily end. Explain why that is the case.
