The Ethic environment

1. Research an article regarding an incident that occurred within the last 6 months and contains an ethical issue. All articles submitted in this course must come from a reliable source to earn credit. 

Helpful Hint – If you ever have trouble with research you should go to the campus library Writing Commons where they are more than happy to help with research, writing, etc.  For those who cannot make it to campus please use the Ask-A-Librarian link in the Begin Here Module

2. You will write a summary/reaction piece. Follow the format below, with emphasis on properly stating the ethical issue.
Don’t forget to look for good ethical conduct as well as bad.  Bad ethical conduct is always easier to find since it is not the norm.
Use MLA format. Place your name, the professor’s name, the course name and the date in the upper left hand corner.  Include a Work Cited page, (see Drop Box Rules).
POST TITLE – The Title of your Article – Date of Publication
Be sure your article was published within the last 6 months.
Paragraph 1

Bold print the ethical issue. 
See Main Moral Issue Activity above to properly state the ethical issue:

be impartial
write one issue not two – so do not use the word OR

Paragraph 2 – Share your reaction to the article.

Word Count – Minimum word count 250 words. Include the word count.
