1. The topic that i have chosen is “The Death Penalty”
  2. Decide where you stand on your topic and WHY. Pick which ethical approach helps justify your belief on the topic. (include things about utilitarianism)
  3. You MUST

    do research

    on the topic and present that research. A good topic of choice will feature at least two reputable sources for each side (a total of four references). Unbiased articles and academic studies are best.
  4. You will create a 7-10 slide presentation

    using PowerPoint® (or another presentation software approved by your instructor)

    . Present

    both sides

    of the issue fairly, then justify your viewpoint. End with at least two ethical discussion questions about the topic for the class to discuss. Include a slide that lists your references in APA format (see presentation outline below).
  5. Make sure your PowerPoint® features an appropriate number of slides and presents the information as clearly as possible. Avoid including slides with too many words, lack of clarity and poor grammar. Use illustrations where appropriate. Move large chunks of text to the notes section of the slide.
  6. Post your presentation (the .pptx file) to this discussion. View your classmates’ presentations and comment on the discussion questions in at least two other presentations.

  7. Outline for Presentation

  8. The first slide should include the name of the presentation AND your name.
  9. The next slides will explain the topic and a quick summary of both sides. Use your research to

    objectively

    (your opinion will come later) present the facts and opinions of both sides fairly. Cite the research you used, including quotations. This should take several slides to do in some depth. Use the notes section if you feel the slides are becoming too crowded (should be 3+ slides).
  10. The next slide should list your sources

    in APA format

    .
  11. The next slide is

    your

    opinion. Present your own opinion on the controversy. You must explain WHY you believe what you do. Also, tie your opinion to one of the ethical approaches we’ve studied. Put it in the slide and explain WHY that is the right approach. (Ex. “Utilitarianism. The right approach offers the greatest good for the greatest number.”). Use the text here, and cite it appropriately.
  12. The last slide includes 2 – 3 discussion questions for the class on this topic. Think about these! They must be ethically challenging and tough.
