Unformatted text preview: Axia College Material Appendix B Final Exam Access the Electronic Reserve Readings link in the Week Nine section of your student Web site. Select one of the following topics and read both articles that present opposing sides of the argument surrounding that topic. o Animal experimentation o Outsourcing o Media violence Answer the following questions in paragraphs of approximately 100 words demonstrating your critical and creative thinking skills. 1.
