HLS3304 Columbia Southern US Patriot Act Positive Effects or Harm Discussion


In the lesson, we discussed the PATRIOT Act. This assignment provides you with an opportunity to further explore this act by reviewing an article of your choice.

Using the CSU Online Library, locate one article from a professional journal. This article should be no more than four years old and should be at least three pages in length. The article selected should discuss either the positive effects or harm that has resulted from the creation of the PATRIOT Act.

The purpose of an article review is to let other readers know what the work is about so that they may decide whether they want to read the entire work. The review should not only describe the work, but it should also evaluate it. Include each of the following within your article review:

  • an introduction to the article,
  • the key points from the article concerning the impact of the PATRIOT Act on civil liberties,
  • a summary of the article’s conclusion, and
  • an evaluation of the article, to include the following:
    • Why is this article important?
    • Should others read it?
    • Was the article well-written (e.g., organized, easy to understand)?
    • What is your perspective and opinion on the article?

The completed article review has to be a minimum of two full pages in length, not including the title page and reference page. The article review should be written in paragraph format. This article review requires APA style formatting, including the citing of key points and material utilizing in-text citations and references.

Papers will be submitted for electronic evaluation to determine any possible academic integrity violations. The Academic Integrity Policy is available through the myCSU portal for CSU and through this course. Students are encouraged to contact the Success Center, which is a valuable resource available to assist with academic writing and APA formatting.
