This class will aid in building a foundation for ethical business behavior that can be applied in many settings. Our first Case Assignment lets you flex critical thinking and debate skills.
In the workplace, employees must often support a professional point of view that may be contrary to personal beliefs. This assignment challenges students to understand “both sides of the fence” on hot-button issues and to consider all points of view. Both sides of the argument should be equally powerful so that the reader is unaware of the position that you espouse.
Select one of the topics:
- Gun control
- Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
- Human rights
- Genetically modified organisms
- Animal ethics
- Capital punishment
Using articles exclusively from Trident Library’s full-text databases like (Academic Search Complete, Business Source Complete and/or ProQuest Central), research the chosen topic and create a well-balanced 2-page submission that addresses two opposing viewpoints. Do not use any quotations.
Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite and reference the sources in APA format. The paper should be written in third person; this means words like “I”, “we,” and “you” are not appropriate. For more information, see Differences Between First and Third Person.
Use the attached APA-formatted template ETH501 Case1 to create your submission.
Your submission will include:
- Trident University International’s cover page
- A two-page paper with APA citations (2- to 3-sentence introduction, body, 2- to 3-sentence conclusion)
- The reference list page in APA format
At Trident University International, rubrics are used for grading. These rubrics specify the points available for each component of an assignment. Points are earned based on the level of the work submitted. The rubric located in the Case Dropbox is used for this Case Assignment.
