Project #53102 - Ethics

For this assignment there are two (2) options to choose from, and should be an essay that demonstrates the breath and depth of your learning from this course.  This means your multiple pages (probably 4-5 pages of substance) for this essay should include detailed explanation with substance to demonstrate your learning from this course.  This should be college level work with correct spelling, grammar, punctuation and sentence structure. 

There is a program called "Turnitin" that functions in the Dropbox to identify plagiarism of any kind.  Make sure you provide complete citation information, with in text citation information, for all information used.  Citations need to include identification of all information used, the source author, title, web address for internet sources and location of the information used, within the source (such as page numbers). 
When you place your cursor over the symbol if the message is an error, not checking, then you need to check the way you saved your document and resubmit, making sure your document is in correct format.  Once "Turnitin" finishes checking the essay a percentage will display a number and a color that identifies possible plagiarism.  Double digit numbers and red background usually means there is a plagiarism problem with the essay.  Please realize, if you submit an essay or portions of an essay, that you submitted to any class in the past, if you did not request and gain permission from your instructor to resubmit any amount of work, you are committing plagiarism.   


I am looking for substance, clarity and descriptive reasoning with support to demonstrate learning. 
Set length does not work as well for values that need different amounts of detailed description to explain perspective.  There should be at least 10 paragraphs (minimum amount) for this project essay.  Remember, superior work is necessary for those aiming for an "A".  Minimal work that just meets the requirements is average work, therefore that would be "C" work.   
Choose your values and present them to demonstrate your learning to me.  I do not have any intention of finding fault with little details, but I am evaluating your learning with your basis of Ethics and your ability to relate to the course.  The length of the essay is not as important as demonstrating your learning with details and reasoned support and explanation from what was learned in the course. 
You should, at least, present the following.   
An Introduction (introducing your purpose with your chosen values, and the Philosophers studied connected with each of your values).  
A complete paragraph explaining your first value.  
A complete paragraph with the Philosopher and their ethics connected to the previous paragraph's value.  
A complete paragraph explaining your second value.  
A complete paragraph with the Philosopher and their ethics connected to the previous paragraph's value.  
A complete paragraph explaining your third value.  
A complete paragraph with the Philosopher and their ethics connected to the previous paragraph's value.  
A complete paragraph explaining your fourth value. 
A complete paragraph with the Philosopher and their ethics connected to the previous paragraph's value.
A conclusion to summarize the highlights of the body of the essay.   


Option #1 You are to identify and evaluate your own moral and ethical values (You may want to go back to the power point from the University of San Diego for help. Using this PowerPoint is only to help you identify your values, this is not to be used as a Philosopher and their ethical theory.  The University of San Diego has PowerPoint slides by Lawrence Hinman Ph.D.  This PowerPoint is linked below.

An introduction paragraph and conclusion paragraph should be included in the essay. [The intro and conclusion should be at least two complete paragraphs.]    
The introduction should state what the intent will be for the body of the essay.  

List the top 4-5 moral issues/values
 (those moral or ethical issues, such as marital faithfulness, academic integrity with plagiarism, stealing, defaming someone's character, or many others), that are most important to you or for your life.  There should be a substantial paragraph with detailed explanation to present each of your 4-5 issues/values.  [This should be at least 4-5 paragraphs.]

Then, connect each of your ethical issues/values with ethical principles (the ethical theories or theorists studied from the text book) and how you do or can draw from them to identify, understand and view each of your chosen ethical issues/values to develop your ethical/moral compass.  There should be a substantial paragraph of detailed explanation to connect each of the 4-5 issues/values with and ethical theorist and theory that was presented from the text book.  [This should be at least 4-5 paragraphs.]

Finally, end with a summarizing conclusion of how any of your findings help or may help you to be a person of good ethical/moral values in our society and world.   
 
Option #2 If you would like (instead of option #1), you could use one of the following movies that present ethical issues/values.  The following is the list of movies you must use one of for this project option: 

"Chariots of Fire", "Breaker Morant", "Remember The Titans", "12 Angry Men", "Lord of the Flies", "Nat'l Treasure", "Radio", "A Few Good Men") and evaluate the movie with the following criteria, including an explanation of the plot and points of the movie.  So, you would do the following.  
Name and give basic citation information for the movie (only from the list above) that you have chosen.  
Introduce the essay and explain in two plus paragraphs, the plot and main points of the movie (this should be at least 2 paragraphs).  

Then (using a similar method as above): 
List the top 4-5 ethical/moral issues/values presented in the movie (those ethical/moral issues/values, such as marital faithfulness, rules broken for a greater reason, stealing, defaming someone else's character or many others), that are presented primarily in the movie.   There should be a substantial paragraph with detailed explanation to present each one of the 4-5 issues/values. [This should be at least 4-5 paragraphs.]

Then, connect the ethical/moral issues/values with ethical principles (the ethical theories or theorists, studied in our Ethics text book) and how you identify, understand and view each of those chosen ethical/moral issues/values presented in the movie to drive or focus upon those perspectives as an ethical/moral compass.   There should be a substantial paragraph of detailed explanation to connect each of the 4-5 issues/values with and ethical theorist and theory that was presented from the text book. [This should be at least 4-5 paragraphs.]

Finally, end with a summarizing conclusion of how any of your findings help or may help present what it means to be a person of good ethical/moral values in our society and world or to be a good society in the world.
