Instructions: Throughout the semester you will be required to keep a journal about the readings assigned each week. You will write a reaction (entry) to every assigned reading (numbers correspond to individual readings). Each reading should have a full paragraph including a quote from author, and a photo/media clip with a detailed explanation of how that media relates to the reading in your view. A full paragraph is 10 sentences or more. Ask yourself these questions and type an essay style response: What caught my attention, what quote(s) stand out from the reading, what is my emotional reaction to this reading, how does this reading relate to current events, how can I see the people involved from a perspective of sociological empathy, what have I learned from reading this, and how can I use the information? Don’t forget to include a media piece that you believe relates to the readings and illustrates the significant aspects of that reading. (Photo, artwork, poem, song lyrics, political cartoon, meme, news story, album cover, book, etc.) You must clearly explain how the media image relates to the reading and include the details of the image as part of your analysis.

It is very laid back and does not really need to have everything listed above. The most important things to include tho is a quote that caught your attention from each reading and a media piece that relates to the topic.

Each Journal involves reflecting on 3 readings. I will attach the PDF’s of all of these readings.

Journal #1: Reading #30, Anzaldua reading, and Moore reading

Journal #2: Reading # 32, Reading #33, and Kaufman reading

Journal #3: Readings # 38, 39 and 43

I will also provide a PDF of a previous journal that I wrote to show you how I typically approach it. This has gotten me full credit. They are not only touching upon the readings, but also have a lot of reflection. This is a very liberal and open-minded course.

This assignment is the first step in a three part project. You only need to focus on part one at this point. Each step will build on earlier steps. However, it is not a matter of providing a rough draft of all or even part of the entire project here in week three. That is, further steps might require completely new and original text.  At the same time, completing each step will aid you in completing a future step or future steps. And, you should use the same topic in all steps.

First, select a topic of moral controversy, debate, disagreement, and dispute, Examples of such topics are euthanasia, the death penalty, abortion, cloning, etc. You can pick any such topic. It need not be listed here.

Next, detail the positions of each side of the ethical debate. Note at least two moral reasons each side presents to show their view on the topic is correct.

Now, we want to evaluate these positions using the moral theories we studied this week:

  • What would an Ethical Egoist say about this topic? What side would the Ethical Egoist take? What would the Ethical Egoist say to justify their moral position? Is there a conflict between loyalty to self and to community relevant to your topic? If so, how so? Note what you feel is the best course of action.
  • What would a Social Contract Ethicist say about this topic? What side would the Social Contract Ethicist take? What would the Social Contract Ethicist say to justify their moral position? Does your topic involve a collision between personal obligations and national ones? If so, how so? Note what you feel is the best course of action.

Finally, reference and discuss any professional code of ethics relevant to your topic such as the AMA code for doctors, the ANA code for nurses, or any other pertinent professional code. State whether and how your chosen topic involves any conflicts between professional and familial duties.
