Dissertation Writers: ethical dilemma/issue
1. Task Think of an ethical dilemma/issue that you experienced recently – one in which you had to decide whether one choice or another was the more ethical. This can be a situation you experienced at work, at home, or elsewhere. First, briefly describe the situation and the decision you made. This should take up no more than approximately one-third of your paper. Second, FULLY discuss your rationale for the decision. The most important part of this paper is that you fully support your decision (i.e., provide a detailed explanation for your decision). This section of the paper should consist of about two-thirds of your paper. You should review the online lectures on writing and critical thinking (and the sample papers) before beginning the assignment. 1. Format a. Use Microsoft Word, 12 point font, single spacing. b. Use the format demonstrated in the sample paper called “Excerpts from A papers ..” provided under Writing Resources in Blackboard for Assignments 2 through 4. This format incorporates the use of headers that distinguish the different areas of thought within the memo. Additionally, for Assignments 1 you may incorporate headers if necessary to more effectively convey your ideas. c. Where using headers in Assignments 2 through 4, you must include these: 1. Facts 2. Issue 3. Analysis (note- this is where you may want to use additional headers to further organize your thoughts) 4. Recommendation d. Suggested Paper Length – these are ranges, not absolutes 1. Assignment 1 should be between 500 and 600 words; 2. Assignments 2 and 3 should be between 750 and 1000 words; 3. Assignment 4 should be between 1400 and 2000 words. e. The purpose of the guide is to help you understand whether you have thought deeply enough about the topic. Your grade does not depend on the number of words written. However, your grade will be affected by whether or not you have fully analyzed the issue and fully supported your conclusion/decision. If you find that you are significantly over this range of words, you should edit your paper so that your ideas and words are conveyed in the most concise manner. This does not mean eliminating key arguments. It just means editing your wording so that it is more concisely written. f. Inside your document – DO NOT include any personal information inside your document (such as name, CougarNet ID, etc). We will not remove this information before submitting it for assessment.
