Background:
Locke’s political philosophy is viewed by scholars as having been revolutionary for his time and as having been the most important theory in shaping U.S. political culture, the U.S. constitution and governmental institutions and their relationships with the U.S. people as they evolved over the course of the 18th to 19th centuries. The political philosophy of Edmund Burke and classical conservatism political ideology had much less influence on the U.S. than Locke’s theory and the classical liberal political ideology. Political ideologies do and must change over time as conditions of a society change. The political ideology of contemporary liberalism is distinctly different from the political ideology of its predecessor, classical liberalism. By contrast, the political ideology of contemporary conservatism while distinctly different from classical liberalism, does seem to draw more elements from classical liberalism (and also classical conservatism) than does contemporary liberalism.
33% Exam Question #1: What was so “revolutionary” about Locke’s political philosophy and why? What is evidence of the influence of classical liberalism on U.S. political culture, governmental institutions and politics in the U.S.?
33% Exam Question #2: Why have Burke’s ideas had so much less influence on the U.S. than those of Locke? Is there any evidence Burke’s philosophy and classical conservatism has had some influence on U.S. political culture, governmental institutions or politics? If yes, how?

Bonus extra credit question: What is the political ideology of Donald Trump? What elements of any of the four political ideologies do you find present in Trump’s speeches and statements made over the last several months?
To answer this question: You will need to find news videos or news articles with videos of Mr. Trump’s speeches, interviews and/or statements. You may use quotes by Mr. Trumps in your exam answer, but the quote will not count toward the length of your answer. Make sure you use statements, interviews and speeches he has made over the last three months. Only focus on Mr. Trump’s statements—ignore the news analysis of his statements. You may use any news source for this as long as you are watching and reading Trump’s actual words rather than what some commentator says he said. Use in-text citations for Trump’s quotes. List the complete citation and URL for each news video/article you use for Trump quotes at the end of your answer to the Bonus question. Use APA format to cite these news articles.
If you write an answer this Bonus question, make sure it is between 400 and 500 words in length. If you answer this question and it is of excellent, above average or satisfactory quality, your exam score will be raised by either 8 points (excellent) , 6 points (above average) or 4 points (satisfactory). Points will not be awarded to unsatisfactory answers.
Exam Instructions:
• DO NOT use quotes in your answers to questions 1, 2 and 3.You may use quotes in your answer to the Bonus question, but the quote will not count toward the word length of your answer.
• Do not include the question itself in your answers.
• Identify the word length of each answer by placing the word length next to the question number at the top of the question (Question # 1, word length 424).
• In developing and writing your answers, use only the course materials identified in Modules 1, 2, and 3—including the course lecture videos, films and film clips, Grigsby and other required reading. Use of any outside materials or persons will result in a grade of Zero.
• Use in-text citations for the points you discuss drawn from course materials. These in-text citations do not count for the essay word length. For example, if you make a point in your own words that was presented in your textbook use(Grig, pg. #) to cite it. For other course reading use citations such as this: (Locke, ch.2, pg #). For power-point video lectures (vl 3, 2)—meaning video lecture module 3, slide 2)) and for the powerpoint slides alone use: (ppt 3, 2). For films and PBS videos and film clips note the abbreviated names of the film or film clip. In short, cite all materials. If possible provide page numbers/slide numbers for the reading and lecture video for your in-text cites. To prevent in-text cites from being distracting and clunky, abbreviate the source name. You can provide a list of the abbreviated names of source material with their complete names at the end of your exam answers.
Do not plagiarize– intentionally or unintentionally.I will be using Turnitin.com by submitting your exam answers to Turnitin myself to check and ensure your answers do not have any citation problems. Should I see a problem, I will contact you about it. You do not need to do anything with Turnitin.com. I assume there will not be any problems with your exam answers.
On Writing: This is a formal writing assignment. For each answer,write using the “active” (not “passive”) voice, use complete sentences, cohesive paragraphs, and appropriate word usage, punctuation, grammar and spelling. Review the two documents–one on writing an essay and the second on what is and isn’t plagiarism— taken from Purdue University’s On-line Writing Lab posted in this Exam Module. Go to the Purdue OWL website to review the rules on writing cohesive paragraphs, writing with an “active” not passive voice, and writing using correct word usage, punctuation and grammar.

Summary:
This handout will explain the difference between active and passive voice in writing. It
gives examples of both, and shows how to turn a passive sentence into an active one.
Also, it explains how to decide when to choose passive voice instead of active.
Active and Passive Voice
Using Active Versus Passive Voice
In a sentence using active voice, the subject of the sentence performs the action expressed
in the verb.
Image Caption: The arrow points from the subject performing the action (the dog) to
the individual being acted upon (the boy). This is an example of a sentence using the
active voice.
Image Caption: Sample active voice sentence with the subject performing the action
described by the verb.
Image Caption: The active voice sentence subject (watching a framed, mobile world)
performs the action of reminding the speaker of something.
Each example above includes a sentence subject performing the action expressed by the
verb.

gives examples of both, and shows how to turn a passive sentence into an active one.
Also, it explains how to decide when to choose passive voice instead of active.
Active Versus Passive Voice
Active voice is used for most nonscientific
writing. Using active voice for the majority
of your sentences makes your meaning clear for readers, and keeps the sentences from
becoming too complicated or wordy. Even in scientific writing, too much use of passive
voice can cloud the meaning of your sentences.
Image Caption: The action is performed upon the sentence
subject, meaning this sentence is passive (indirect).
Image Caption: This is an example of the active voice
because the sentence subject performs the action.
Image Caption: This is an example of the passive voice.
Image Caption: This is an example of an active voice
sentence because the sentence subject performs the action.

Image Caption: This is an example of the passive voice.
Image Caption: This is an example of an active voice
sentence because its subject performs the action
expressed in the verb.
Sentences in active voice are also more concise than those in passive voice because fewer
words are required to express action in active voice than in passive.
Image Caption: This passive voice sentence is less concise
than its active voice counterpart (shown below).
Image Caption: This active voice sentence requires fewer
words to communicate the same idea as the passive voice
version (above).
Image Caption: This passive voice sentence is more wordy
than an active voice version.
Image Caption: This active voice sentence is more concise
than the passive voice version (above) because the subject
directly performs the action.

More about Passive Voice
In a sentence using passive voice, the subject is acted upon; he or she receives the action
expressed by the verb. The agent performing the action may appear in a “by the…” phrase
or may be omitted.
Image Caption: The dog is acting upon the sentence subject
(the boy), meaning it uses the passive voice.
Image Caption: This example sentence includes the passive
voice because the subject (research) is being acted upon
(presented) by another person (Pooja).
Image Caption: This is an example of the passive voice.
Image Caption: The subject of the passive voice
sentence performs the action expressed in the verb in
this example.
Reasons to Generally Avoid Passive Voice
Sometimes the use of passive voice can create awkward sentences, as in the last example
above. Also, overuse of passive voice throughout an essay can cause your prose to seem
flat and uninteresting. In scientific writing, however, passive voice is more readily
accepted since using it allows one to write without using personal pronouns or the names
of particular researchers as the subjects of sentences (see the third example above). This
practice helps to create the appearance of an objective, factbased
discourse because
writers can present research and conclusions without attributing them to particular agents.
Instead, the writing appears to convey information that is not limited or biased by
individual perspectives or personal interests.
Recognizing Passive Voice
5/28/2015 Purdue OWL
https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/owlprint/539/ 5/11
You can recognize passivevoice
expressions because the verb phrase will always include
a form of be, such as am, is, was, were, are, or been. The presence of a beverb,
however, does not necessarily mean that the sentence is in passive voice. Another way to
recognize passivevoice
sentences is that they may include a “by the…” phrase after the
verb; the agent performing the action, if named, is the object of the preposition in this
phrase.
Helpful Hint
You can recognize passive voice because the verb phrase will include a form of be (was,
am, are, been, is). Don’t assume that just because there is a form of ‘be’ that the sentence is
passive, however. Sometimes a prepositional phrase like “by the” in the sentences above
indicates that the action is performed on the subject, and that the sentence is passive.
