Extra Credit Opportunity 

A recent documentary of Associate Justice Clarence Thomas has been made. It is viewable for free from PBS.
For extra credit, watch the documentary, and in 2-4 pages (double spaced, 12-font).

  1. Describe several of the events from his life before he became a Supreme Court Justice which you found interesting, explain why those experiences were interesting. 
  2. Discuss your thoughts on his approach to the government/law, consider his experiences in your discussion. Reflect on how you are conceptualizing your key terms (what do you mean by them, which indicators could help you measure them? E.g religiosity could be your concept and attending services one of the indicators)
    Think about how you are operationalizing your key concepts, meaning how do you think they could be measured? What are potential validity/reliability issues?
