I know most of you have completed a similar paper in high school, so why would you have to do this again??? Most of you have experienced significant changes since high school, most of which are centered on greater independence from your parents. This may have resulted in you having greater responsibility for your own well-being by working to support yourself, maybe even living on your own, creating your own family…. Those changes are why I am assigning this essay.
The assignment is designed to provide you with greater self-awareness of your political worldview. As such, you will need to apply theoretical concepts learned in your reading and pre-recorded video lecture to your personal political development through the process of political socialization. Please do not underestimate how much time you will need to dedicate to complete this assignment simply because it is about YOU! This essay requires considerable self-reflection and deliberation so do not procrastinate.
• Before doing anything else, READ the Instructions, Essay Prompt and Rubric Checklist in its entirety.
• READ notes on Ideology and Political Socialization provided in Canvas Assignment instructions for this ideology paper.
• Upon completion of reading, consider what you believe your ideology to be and submit your response in the assignment link before 11:59pm Sunday, 06/26/2022. Do NOT take the quiz until AFTER you submitted this initial response.
• Create outline for this paper using prompt below. Be sure to include a thesis/purpose statement.
• Now you can begin to write! But first, take the quiz.
• Copy and paste the link in your browser:
• READ the quiz intro before you begin. You may need to register so that you can access the quiz and save your results.
• Once you have completed the quiz, read the information that explains your ideology. You must look up any vocabulary that you do not understand as you read the explanations.
• Be sure to save your results so that you can attach the graph to your paper.
ESSAY PROMPT: Discuss all of the following questions in your paper.
(1) Before taking this quiz, what did you believe your ideology to be? Did your results match?
(2) What was the label assigned to you upon completion of the quiz? In your own words, provide an explanation of your ideology results.
a. Your explanation should focus specifically on the labels (left, right, authoritarian, libertarian) and your position on the graph.
(3) Consider how you might have developed your ideology through the process of political socialization. Which two agent(s) do you think had the greatest impact on your ideology? Why?
a. Be sure to provide multiple examples to support your statements. Each example should be rooted in supporting the process of political socialization
(3) Has your ideology changed over time at all? If so, why do you think it has? If not, explain. Again, provide examples of those changes or lack thereof.
(4) Which issue addressed in the survey is most important in affecting your future political behavior? Why is this issue important to you? Will it influence the way you vote in the future? Explain.
1. Is your paper typed using Times New Roman, 12-font?
2. Is your paper double-spaced with one-inch margins all the way around?
3. Is your paper 3-4 pages long in CONTENT? The content only includes your specific responses to the essay prompt, thus excludes your name, class information, the graph of your results, titles and subheadings… Anything shorter than 3 pages or longer than 4 pages in content will have points deducted.
4. Have you added page numbers to all content pages? These should be at bottom-center or -right of page.
5. Did you use APA formatting for all in-text citations and works cited page? See Purdue OWL as guide/for reference and examples.
• This includes a cover page and abstract.
1. Is your paper written ENTIRELY in your own words?
• QUOTES NOT ALLOWED. -10 for any/each quote included in content of your paper. You must paraphrase and cite sources in order to avoid this penalty.
2. Is your paper written in a formal, authoritative tone?
• This is an academic exercise so your writing should reflect that. Read your paper aloud. If it reads in the same way that you talk, then it is NOT written in a formal tone.
o EXCEPTION: Because the assignment is about you, you are allowed to write in the first person, just ensure your tone is always formal.
• A formal tone requires you to economize your work by being word-efficient (use as few words as possible by utilizing concise language) and writing in the active voice (
3. Is your paper direct, to the point, avoiding redundancy and flowery language (excessive adjectives and conjunctive adverbs).
4. Have you proofread your work to correct misspellings, grammar, sentence construction and punctuation?
• A good thesaurus and your computer’s spell check are your friends! Use them.
1. Does your paper follow the same order of questions presented in the essay prompt?
• Following the order of questions as presented in the essay prompt will ensure a natural flow to your paper.
2. Are all components of the essay prompt fully addressed?
3. Does the paper include a thesis/purpose statement?
4. Does your paper include an introduction, body paragraphs and conclusion?
5. Does each paragraph directly respond to its topic sentence and include transitions?
6. Are all statements supported with evidence and elaborated with examples?
7. Does your essay reflect your understanding of:
• The assignment requirements
• Ideology
• Political socialization
8. Did you include a copy of your ideology results graph in the appendix?
1. Did you save your work in a Microsoft Word Document?
• If you are using Google Docs, you are responsible for ensuring that the file is unlocked so that I can access it.
• PDF files will NOT be graded, thus assigned an automatic zero.
2. Attach your Word doc/x in the respective assignment links for your rough publish, peer review and final publish (The process is similar to email attachments).
3. Did you attach the correct file?
• I encourage you to use the following titles for your files in order to avoid confusion:
o Ideology ROUGH publish Your last name
o Ideology PEER REVIEW Your last name
o Ideology FINAL publish Your last name
o EXAMPLE: Ideology ROUGH publish Cardona
4. Just to reiterate, did you verify that your file is a Microsoft Word doc/x and is unlocked so that I can open and grade your work?
• I will not respond to emails asking me to verify this for you.
5. Did you post your rough publish in your Peer Review group?
Please read carefully as there will be no exceptions.
• If I cannot open your file, I cannot grade it. Thus, you will receive a zero.
• If you attach the wrong file, I will not grade it. Thus, you will receive a zero.
• If you submit a PDF file (or any other file type besides Microsoft Word) as your attachment, I will NOT grade it. Thus, you will receive an automatic zero.
• If you attached the wrong/locked file and later submit the correct file, your essay will be counted as late with -10 points deducted for each 24-hour period late, including weekends and holidays.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
