  • Textbook: review all chapters
    • Ruggiero, V. R. (2012). Thinking critically about ethical issues (8th ed.). New York: Mc-Graw Hill.
    • type in book title, then google books, once you click the link, go the search bar and search the chapters as needed. make sure to use book in paper AND 2 scholarly sources.
  • Lesson
  • Minimum of 5 scholarly sources (This includes the source from Week 3 Proposal.)
  • the week 3 proposal is attached to this question. below this bullet point are the teacher’s comments about it.
    • “The topic is fascinating – but this is not a research paper. Make sure that there is an issue/ question that needs to be resolved. What is the ethical question that you are raising? Is there modern day slavery in the world that you would like to explore? Is there an issue of reparations that might create an ethical question? Having this (a question to be solved) will make the next section(s) of this project easier to complete. The next section of your course project is due in week 5. It is the annotated bibliography. An example is located on the assignment tab. Review carefully. Read the assignment tab early, and note the requirement of at least 5 sources. As you are working on this project – -what I would like you to do, and you can include it in your final paper – is create a fictional story in your mind regarding this issue. And example would be the case studies that I often post in the threads. Make sure that you end your dilemma with a question that needs to be resolved” -teacher

Instructions
Create a complete annotated bibliography for 5 academic scholarly sources (including your source from Week 3). Include the following:

  • Introduction and thesis for your paper (to the best extent as you know it at this time)
  • Publication details
  • Annotation (a detailed reading of the source)

The annotation section should include the following:

  • Summarize key points and identify key terms (using quotation marks, and citing a page in parentheses).
  • Describe the controversies or “problems” raised by the articles.
  • State whether you agree or disagree and give reasons.
  • Locate one or two quotations to be used in the final research project.
  • Evaluate the ways in which this article is important and has helped you focus your understanding.

Annotation Example
In this article, Mezirow (2003) makes a distinction between “instrumental” and “communicative” learning. “Instrumental learning” refers to those processes which measure and gage learning, such as tests, grades, comments, quizzes, attendance records and the like. “Communicative learning,” on the other hand, refers to understanding created over time between individuals in what Mezirow calls “critical-dialectical-discourse,” (p. 59) which is a fancy way of saying, important conversation between 2 or more speakers. Another key idea Mezirow discusses is “transformative learning,” (p. 61) which changes the mind, the heart, the values and beliefs of people so that they may act better in the world. Mezirow argues that “hungry, desperate, homeless, sick, destitute, and intimidated people obviously cannot participate fully and freely in discourse” (p. 59). On the one hand, he is right: there are some people who cannot fully engage because their crisis is so long and deep, they are prevented. But, I don’t think Mezirow should make the blanket assumption that everyone in unfortunate circumstances is incapable of entering the discourse meaningfully. One thing is certain: if we gave as much attention to the non-instrumental forms of intelligence–like goodness, compassion, forgiveness, wonder, self-motivation, creativity, humor, love, and other non-measured forms of intelligence in our school curriculums, we’d see better people, actors in the world, and interested investigators than we currently have graduating high school.
