(Compare and Contrast US Constitution and TX Constitution) & (Texas Executive Agencies)

Please answer BOTH of the following essays. You are allowed to consult your textbook and any notes that you might have written. For Essay two you will be required to consult the website of the Executive agency you choose to write your essay on. If you consult any other sources please be sure to cite them. Be sure to submit BOTH ESSAYS as a single entry here clearly indicating the questions that you have answered! That does not mean that you combine the answers. I just want one document with both essays distinctly answered in the same document.

 

EACH ESSAY will need to be at least seven paragraphs long (3 pages each) with each paragraph having at least 6-8 sentences. The essays require a distinct introduction, at least five paragraphs where the main arguments and points are developed and a distinct conclusion. Remember though that this is only a guideline. Please make sure that you answer each aspect of the question in the context of the readings and class discussion. Please read the instructions that will be provided carefully.  The essays are due on Friday, October 26, 11:59 P.M Eastern Daylight Time. I look forward to reading them! Please do not hesitate to message me if you have questions or need clarifications! Thanks!
