Case Study 1: Ethics Discussion

Discussion Spark

Respond to the Discussion Spark by Day 2. Your response marks your entrance into this week’s Discussion area. While you are not required to respond to your colleagues’ Discussion Spark responses, you are encouraged to read them.

Making Connections

Part of writing a successful argumentative paper is making clear connections between the sources you use and the argument you are making.

The readings and media resources that accompany your case study might not seem to have much to do with the topic of your Final Project—at least not on the surface—but when you think about their broad themes and how they are still relevant today, you begin to make connections.

By Day 4

Respond to the Discussion post that is designated for your case study selection.

Be sure to provide attribution, using APA formatting, for any outside sources used. The required reading should be completed prior to this Discussion post and should be referenced in the Discussion post, using APA formatting.

Note: This week, be sure to participate in the Discussion thread based on the case study you selected. You may also read and respond to discussions about other case studies, but your main post due on Day 4 should be in the thread related to your chosen case study.
