The goal is for you to use your text, PowerPoint’s, and other ethical research when discussing. Posts must have the required references and quotes for points.I recommendthat you go through the library online article search and print out articles relating to the different ethical theories so you can use them in your discussions. Use “Google Scholarly” or the “Library Database” for additional sources (See Library Research Tab on the Left in Bb). Do not use Wikipedia, dictionary, or a website (points will be taken off).Make sure when you apply an ethical theory, it actually is an ethical theory and not just a component of a theory. Ethical theories that can be used includes the following: Hedonism, Desire Theory, Divine Command Theory, Natural Law, Ethical Egoism (Psychological Egoism is NOT an ethical theory), Consequentialism, Kantian Ethics, Social Contract Theory, Ethical Relativism (Ethical Subjectivism and Cultural Relativism) and Emotivism. Video Discussions-Three Quotes minimum required (three different sources other than the video, FOUR TOTAL REFERENCES) from text, powerpoint or articles from the Cal Poly Pomona library website. When you quote make sure and list the page number or slide number or paragraph number in APA.Video assignments MUST focus on the application of ethical theory NOT discussion of the topic from the video (ie: GMO;s, pesticides, etc.). The purpose of the assignment is to apply ethical theories to real-life examples. The “weekly assignment ideas” listed in the course schedule for each assignment are there to give you possible actions from the video to use when applying theory. You are notliterally discussing those points at face-value (ie: do not research GMO’s or rBHT,14
etc.) but rather you are using the actions and decisions in the video to connect with an ethical theory (these connections can accept/follow or reject ethical theories). Book Discussions- Three Quotes minimum required from FOUR TOTAL SOURCES. When discussing the book you need the book and THREE more sources. Use “Google Scholarly” or the “Library Database” for additional sources (See Library Research Tab on the Left in Bb). Do not use Wikipedia, dictionary, ora website (points will be taken off). When you quote make sure and list the page number or slide number or paragraph number in APA (you must have a minimum of three quotes from different sources).Quick Review of Things to Know to be successful:1.You MUST read the required textbooks and use them in your papers.2.You MUST follow the RUBRICs when completing papers and weekly assignments.3.Papers MUST follow APA format for paper format and citing your sources.
