Student research paper
The Capstone Project covers, through documented interviews and insights, practitioners, journalists, and researchers that have endeavored to recognize and reconcile the effects of extremism in Idaho legislation. The referenced articles and academic journals also shed light on how this is not unique to the Gem State and how it is manifesting and evolving within the United States. This paper describes my approaches to researching this topic and the challenges of its polarization and political realities. I cover how creating an innovative approach can bring together different perspectives. Emotional intelligence is vital in exploring a hot-button issue such as this. Awareness of one’s self and others helps to bolster the consideration of the audience and brings value to others who broach the subject matter. Implementing a creative framework nurtures a unique approach for the purposes of innovation to the project and accomplishment of the Capstone. This project not only satisfies my desire to bring clarity to the problem but to espouse its benefits and impact on the stakeholders.
