goal for this assignment is to apply an ethical theory to a real-world
situation. You will examine an environmental issue and apply one of the
ethical theories to understand how human interactions with the natural
environment raise ethical concerns. You will do this by preparing and
posting a PowerPoint slideshow consisting of 12 slides and a separate
section under each slide for notes.
Environmental justice/environmental racism (httpss://www.utne.com/environment/environmental-justice-for-all.aspx)
focus (or questions) helps you think about the topical boundaries of
the theory. This course is about ethics and social responsibility, so
you should concentrate on the ethical and moral aspects of the theory
and of the topic you are analyzing. It may help to think in terms of
different realms or institutions. Does the theory help to explain
people’s behavior from a political, economic, religious, or ethical
perspective? Try to sort through everything that does not represent an
ethical question, and address only the ethical issues.
slideshow should be 12 slides long; one slide for title page, one for
the thesis question, nine slides for your arguments (i.e., main
sentences) and notes, and one slide for your references. You should use
at least two academic sources other than the textbook as references. All
citations and references must be in the APA format as outlined in the
Ashford Writing Center. This assignment must be submitted as a
PowerPoint presentation. Other formats (i.e., PDF files, Word documents,
etc.) are not acceptable. If you are unfamiliar with how to use
PowerPoint, see: Basic tasks in PowerPoint 2010.
