The hypothetical scenario: You are an expert witness testifying at a Senate Committee hearing. You will be writing a transcript of what you would say during your testimonial. Your audience consists of senators and their aides; some of them may be knowledgeable about the topic but many will need to be informed of the justifications for your position. You must advocate a particular position on the topic (for or against a specific policy), and you will be expected to provide evidence for all the claims you make (with data from reputable sources).
Format: Start with a statement that attracts attention and summarizes the issue. Use this introduction to clarify the issue AND to claim your position on how best to address the issue with regard to policy development or policy change. What is the problem you are addressing? Why is it a significant and impactful problem? What policy or regulation is needed or should change?
Next, define three main points that support your position. Each point should be developed with a general statement of the position, an elaboration that references data from reputable sources, and perhaps a compelling related experience or vignette. What is known about harms, barriers, or inequities for this problem? How do current policies contribute to these challenges?
Conclude by restating your position on the issue, reflecting on the succession and importance of your arguments, and drawing a logical final conclusion about how policymakers should maintain, change, remove, or modify some policy, law, or regulation. What are you asking the Senate to change and what are the implications for this change if achieved?
FIVE PAGES MAXIMUM, excluding references, typed and double-spaced. Follow APA-style (7th ed.). Ensure that your spelling, punctuation, grammar, and syntax are correct. Please proofread!
Tips: Be concise, and the arguments should be substantiated and logical. This is a professional paper and should be written in a formal style. Keep your voice active. Stay focused on your point of view throughout the testimonial. Focus on logical arguments and proven facts, not opinions or speculations. Assume familiarity with basic concepts but define any complex terms or concepts. Familiarize yourself with supporting evidence for both sides (for and against the policy changes you are recommending) to prepare your proposal. Quote sources to establish authority. Summarize the arguments and evidence for the opposing stance, then refute.
