PORTFOLIO ESSAY: TRANSFORM ONE OF YOUR OLDER ESSAYS OR ASSIGNMENTS INTO AN EXTENDED RESEARCH PAPER.

_x000D_
Title your Modified Research/Argumentative Essay

_x000D_
Write an Argumentative essay of at least five fully typed pages (double spaced). Formulate a thesis statement that targets a debatable topic or prompt in fiction, poetry, film, drama, or a combination of these genres by an author. Develop an Outline to reflect the direction and structure of your paper before using it to develop an Argumentative Essay (Remember, Argumentative writing includes a counterargument and a rebuttal). I highly recommend that you use one of your older essays or assignments for this portfolio essay.

Estimated Time: 2 to 3 hours.

Analyze the actions of any major character in the movie applying two tests which any ethical action must pass: (1) The Golden Rule and (2) universality (Would the person taking the action want all persons to act the same way in a similar situation?).

_x000D_
Did characters in this drama or short story make decisions that involved a choice between conflicting values, including conflicts between ethical values and non-ethical values? (Values can include: acting in an ethical manner, getting rich, having a happy family life, buying a new car, being popular, wearing the right clothing, fitting in, having an enjoyable experience, having children; building a satisfying career; having a good marriage; eating well; traveling; having a good reputation; being healthy, etc. These “values” are not listed in any particular order.)

Decision Making: Student states a position on the issue based on at least two or three points and offers an opposing view and counterargument supported with primary and secondary database sources.

_x000D_
Position: Specific position is imaginative, taking into account the complexities of an issue. (This means that you have written a sophisticated thesis.) Limits of position are acknowledged.
