Identify and describe a myth that has been created or perpetuated by television. You must clearly explain the myth and its origin. You must also describe all of the people involved in the myth, including the producers, actors, and viewers. Your example and its description must be supported by sourced evidence. For the analysis part of the paper you must explain why you think viewers believe the false info the myth is based on. Additionally, you must provide at least one suggestion for combatting myths portrayed on television. The analysis can come from your understanding of the example, but you are encouraged to use sources to support your analysis. You will submit a 4-5-page written report where you describe the example you identified and provide the analysis required. All papers should be written in APA format and you must cite at least four outside sources to support your description of the example. If you use the textbook as a source, you must have a minimum of five sources. All papers must include a clear and well-defined structure including an introduction, body, and conclusion. The introduction must clearly set up the paper and include a thesis statement. The intro should also be creatively written so it makes the reader want to continue reading. The body must be thorough, detailed, and supported by sources. The conclusion is just as important as the introduction. The conclusion should provide a clear summary of the paper and give the reader closure
Is Ethics of Care is a teleological ethical system or a deontological ethical system?In 500 words or more (no less), argue whether the Ethics of Care is a teleological ethical system or a deontological ethical system, support your claim. You may use examples, but you will still need to include a full scholarly definition of each, with commentary. You may use any scholarly source other than a dictionary, to include online video lectures. You may use Wikipedia as a starting point, but be aware that Wikipedia is not a scholarly source and therefore can never be quoted in your paper. You will need to include in-text citations in your essay (last name, date, pg#) along with an APA formatted References page. You can find tools and examples of APA citation formats at the Purdue University Online Writing Lab.
OverviewInstead of taking an exam for our midterm, we will be working on a research-based argumentative essay, which will be due in its final form at the end of the semester. For the midterm component of this project, you will be gathering and organizing your research and working out your main arguments and your counter-arguments. The actual drafting of this essay will come later.TopicsFor your topic, you must choose either a specific ethical dilemma (like the cases of Dax Cowert or Teri Schiavo) or a broader ethical issue, such as environmental ethics, euthanasia, abortion rights, etc. You are free to choose your own topic, but my advice is that you should choose something small and limited in scope, and ideally something that has been written about by many well-educated and knowledgeable people. Don’t take on all of environmental ethics, for example, it’s too big, and don’t choose a dilemma that’s only relevant to your own life, that’s too small. If in doubt, please discuss this with me. Our live session will be the perfect opportunity for this discussion.DetailsFor this assignment, you will submit a Word document containing the following 4 sections:1. A clear thesis statement that makes the main claim that you will be defending in your essay. This should be one sentence that captures the complexity of your argument and makes clear what position you will be taking and defending.2. Two separate arguments based in two separate ethical theories that we have discussed so far. These arguments will be two different ways of supporting your thesis. For example, you might first take a utilitarian approach and second a deontological approach to your argument.3. Two separate counter-arguments to your thesis. These are arguments that someone else might offer as a way of denying your thesis. Imagine that you are making your claim to another person who is well-educated on your topic but who holds a different position on it. What would that person argue?4. A Works Cited page containing the Works you intend to cite as you develop your arguments and counter-arguments. Your essay should include at least 10 credible sources.OrganizationCreate an outline, and only an outline. Do not write out a full draft yet. That will come later. For reference, please see the example outlines here in this module.Begin with a title.In the introduction section, include a very brief overview of the different positions common to your argument.Include your thesis statement.List each paragraph you will include. The entries in your outline should be just your topic sentences of each paragraph. No more.Include the Works you will cite in each paragraph as a Works Cited entry below the topic sentence.Then include the complete Works Cited page as the final page.That’s it!Be sure to study the example outline posted in this module.FormattingAll work should be done in MLA format. Please reference the MLA materials posted in the early modules here in Canvas, or reference the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL), or consult with me directly. The formatting is important because it helps you present your ideas in a recognizable and easy-to-follow style.GuidanceA good outline for an essay like this should take you 2-5 pages, depending on how many points you wish to make, how many counter-arguments you wish to deal with, and how many sources you intend to include. There is no official length requirement, only a quality requirement. Generally speaking, more detail is better and therefore longer is better–not because length is what you want, but because a fully-detailed and well-planned essay will require a longer, rather than a shorter, outline.The overall length of the final essay can vary, and again there’s no requirement for length. However, after having read over 10,000 of these through the years, I can tell with confidence that the best ones will require 6-10 pages. I don’t think more pages will help, and I’m certain fewer pages will not allow for enough detail to adequately cover your topic.
Step #1 – Study the theory: The first task is to conduct research on virtue and Kantian ethics (PICK ONE THEORY) and contribute quality information to this forum about one of the ethical theories.Step #1 should be at least one paragraph with a link to your research contentGive a good summary of the content you found in your research, why you think it is helpful for other students interested in this theory, and post the link so other students can review the source.Examples of the type of content I am looking for: web articles, YouTube videos, journal articles. It is important tofind credible sources. Here is a link to a video on finding credible sources: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLTOVoHbH5cStep #2 – Apply the theory: The second task is to find an example of an ethical issue from social media, politics, business, health and legal fields, work and/or school and analyze it from the perspective of the theory you picked in step #1. Step #2 should be one to two paragraphs and thoroughly cover issue from the perspective of the theory. The Perspective is a good website to find ethical issues that are current and trending(https://www.theperspective.com/)Explain the ethical issue you picked and use the theory you picked to evaluate the issue using the principles, strengths, and weaknesses of the theory. You can also use an example from your life, but please do not mention names or give away the identity of the persons involved. Post a link to the article if appropriate.For example, if you picked virtue ethics, you would need to use the principles of that theory to analyze a moral issue such as the actions of Edward Snowden virtuous or traitorous. Here is a link to a website with two perspectives – https://www.theperspective.com/debates/politics/edward-snowden-hero-traitor/
In the past two modules, you created a simple visual of your default mode of ethical reasoning and then began adding to it, in order to represent what it means to you to be an ethical professional using such concepts as relationship, well-being, and trust. In this activity, you will temporarily put that aside in order to visualize a workable method of ethical decision-making. (Youll consolidate them later.) Youll personalize the method outlined in Meyers Chapter 2, 2.6 and 2.7. When you are done, you will have the foundation of your personal ethical decision-making toolkit.Task:Design your SmartArt image based on what you learned this week. You explored how ethical decision-making can be understood as a process of reasoning and used it to test and understand the experience of a fictional character. Now, visualize your own process and highlight the tools that you believe will be the most useful to you. As you design your image, ask yourself, when the decision is difficult and you dont know what to do, what steps do you want to take? What factors will you consider? How will you determine the extent to which relevant factors are involved? How will you incorporate, in advance, the outcomes of your decision? The visual map you create here should be the tool that you want to have on hand when you have to make the tough decisions.Use your essay to help you do this. How did your character come to their decision? Would you do it the same way? If so, create a visual model of that. Would you have made a different decision? If so, which factors, principles, and values would you use, and how would you justify your decision? Remember, this is not an exercise in emotion or belief. Those are not insignificant, and neither is conscience, but your faculty of reason must, in the end, be the arbiter of all of these inputs. Map your desired process in SmartArt (or a comparable tool), and as you create, think about your future self and your future clients. Prepare yourself for your calling with a process that is meaningful to you, that says something about you as an ethical person, and that is represented in a visual that will guide you when challenges arise.Once you are satisfied with your model, post it to the discussion for this activity, and comment briefly on the following questions:What did you learn about yourself in relationship to the ethical concepts that you tried to portray in your visual?Why did you use a certain template or include certain parts or concepts?
Write an essay comparing utilitarianism and Kant’s theory of ethics. First, briefly define each theory by reference to its fundamental moral principle. Then explain how one would use each theory to determine whether a particular action is morally right. N
