Axia College Material Appendix B Final Exam Access the Electronic Reserve Readings link on your student Web site for Week Nine. Select one of the topics below 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. Identify if the topic you chose, as presented by both articles, is a problem or an issue and explain what makes it a problem or an issue. If you believe the articles present both problems and issues, identify and explain what the problems are and what the issues are. The topic I chose was media violence; I chose this topic because it is a never ending problem. I believe that media violence is not an issue but more of a problem. The problem with media violence lies more in the parent’s control. Many parents allow their children free reign to do whatever they want watch whatever they want and play whatever type of video games they want. Also, children are not held responsible for their actions; there are no consequences; just as long as the child or children are not bothering the parents. 2. Were the problems or issues expressed effectively? Describe how the problems or issues were or were not best expressed. I believe they were expressed effectively and even allowed me to expand my thoughts on the problem beyond what was listed. When we look media violence, we have a tendency to point fingers at one place or the other but never where it is actually the problem; and that is at home. The problem was best expressed when one of the articles stated; “There is absolutely no doubt that those who are heavy viewers of media violence demonstrate increased acceptance of aggressive attitudes and increased aggressive behavior.” On just about any statement on the subject of media violence there will be a problem or an issue and both articles pulled the basic information needed in order to understand the direct problem with media violence.
