Global Poverty

Beginning to Think about Applied Ethics

Before beginning this paper, make sure that you have completed Module 1 and chosen your Applied Ethics topic (animal rights, euthanasia, or global poverty). It is also highly recommend that you have read LaFollette’s “Writing a Philosophy Paper” from Ethics in Practice: An Anthology. This paper is worth 5% of your grade in this course. Make sure to follow the following instructions.


In this paper, you will begin to defend your own view on your applied ethics topic. In order to do this, you must explain your applied ethics topic, briefly, then write a clear thesis statement that states your own view. After giving your thesis statement, you need to explain why you have this position. So, explain two or three reasons that you think support your view.

This paper will be graded on content, not length. That being said, you should aim for 1-2 pages. If your paper is too short, you won’t have included all of the necessary portions of this assignment. Your paper should include an introduction, paragraphs devoted to the reasons for your position, and a conclusion. If your paper seems to be a bit long, make sure every word is absolutely necessary. You should be able to explain the concepts succinctly as well as clearly.

This is not a research paper, so you should not need to use any sources outside the course materials. However, you may want to refer to other sources to support your position. If you do, make sure you cite them properly. You may use any style that you prefer (APA, MLA, etc.), as long as you areconsistent. This should be your own work. Do not plagiarize. See the Syllabus for my policy on this.


Introduction (15 pts)

Your introduction should briefly explain the applied ethics topic discussed in the paper and effectively engage the reader’s attention. You should end your introduction with a clear statement of your view (your thesis statement).

Support (15 pts)

The body of the paper should present and explain two-three reasons that you think support your position. These reasons should be appropriately connected to your argument – the reasons that you give provide evidence for thinking that your position (as presented in your thesis statement) is true. If outside sources are needed, they are included in an appropriate manner (e.g. sources are used when needed, when they are used – no excessive quotation)

Conclusion (5 pts)

Your conclusion should succinctly and clearly summarize the topic discussed in your paper and it should include a restatement of your thesis.

Overall Readability and Mechanics (5 pts)

Your paper should be free of spelling and grammatical errors, and any sources used should be cited. Make sure you use natural and appropriate word choice.

In your paper, make sure that the structure and organization of the paper makes your ideas clear. Discussion of different topics should be clearly indicated in text, and there should be smooth transitions between sections, easy for reader to follow throughout.
