SOC 120 Week 2 Assignment Applying Theory
Environmental Issues (2 PPT)
For more classes visit
www.snaptutorial.com
This Tutorial contains 2 Presentations
Your 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 it 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 with a separate section under each slide for notes.
 Choose one of the following topics or issues, and read about it
at the indicated place:
o Environmental justice and environmental racism
(Read Environmental Justice for All)
o Environmental harm, like the pollution of air and water
(Read Chapter 8 in the textbook)
o Waste reduction (Read Chapter 8 in the textbook)
 Select one philosophical theory (i.e., utilitarianism, deontology,
or virtue ethics). Consider the following questions pertaining to
the theory you have selected:
 What does the theory tell us about how things operate in the real
world?
 What is the focus of the theory? That is, what aspects of
everyday life (or what questions) does the theory address?
 How does the theory simplify complex issues to make them more
understandable? Another way to think about this is to consider
the concepts that make up the theory. Identify the concepts and
how they are related to each other.
 The focus 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 both
the theory and topic you are analyzing. It may help to think in
terms of different realms or institutions. Does the theory help
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.
 Develop one thesis question that applies your philosophical
theory to your environmental issue. You will address this
question by developing an argument that links the theory to the
issue (through your notes and pictures), so make sure you word
your question carefully to accomplish this task. Indicate this
thesis question on your second slide (the one after the title
slide).
 To add notes to your slide, go the section at the bottom of each
slide in PowerPoint and click on the option that says “Click to
add notes.” Type your notes into that section.
 Make sure your presentation focuses on ethical arguments and
avoids personal opinion, arguments based on politics,
economics, religion, or topics other than ethics.
 Next, develop an ethical argument that addresses your question.
Use the text and/or other academic sources to support your
position. Build your argument by writing nine clear sentences.
Each sentence should make one important point aboutthe
ethical aspects of the environmental issue you are analyzing and
should be placed on one slide each.
 Underneath each slide, you will also add presentation notes.
This is written information that you would normally say or share
with an audience during a presentation, but they do not show up
in the presentation. Your notes should also make use of at least
two academic sources and elaborate on the image and sentence
in each slide.
 Next, find a photo or image to illustrate each slide, and post it
on the slide above the sentence. Search the Internet for photos
or images that are appropriate. Make sure the photos or images
you use are not copyright protected; you should only use photos
or images that are in the public domain. Also, make sure you
cite the sources from which you retrieved your photos or images
directly underneath the photo on each slide.
The final PowerPoint slideshow should consist of 12 slides. There
should be one slide for the title page, one slide for your 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 in addition to the textbook as references. So you
will use a total of at least three academic sources. 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 (e.g., PDF files, Word documents, etc.) are not
acceptable. If you are unfamiliar with how to use PowerPoint,
see Basic tasks in PowerPoint 2010. You may also use the sample
PowerPoint assignment to guide you in preparing your assignment,
but you may not use the slides from that sample in your own work.
The work you submit must be completely original. Please also make
sure that you refer to the grading rubric for this assignment to ensure
that your final work meets all of the submission criteria for the final
PowerPoint slideshow.

SOC 120 Week 3 DQ 1 Ageism
For more classes visit
www.snaptutorial.com
The purpose of this discussion is to give you the opportunity to apply
ethical theories to the complex issue of ageism in the workplace,
particularly in the area of employment. In the modern workplace,
there appear to be the following three key issues that exhibit ageism
in employment, some of which have been exacerbated by recent
economic issues and an aging population:
 Older job seekers fight ageism as a barrier to re-employment
 Younger job seekers have trouble obtaining career entry
 Evidence in many countries highlights that older worker
employment and youth employment are not connected in any
way
This last point is generally known in economics as the lump of labor
fallacy, which challenges the view that if older workers are employed
in a tight labor market, then they must be occupying the jobs of the
country’s youth. Prepare and post a response to the following
prompt:
Using at least one ethical perspective or theory from the text and one
item of scholarly evidence, present an argument to a group of
younger workers (regarding older worker and youth employment) in
which you refute the notion that older workers take employment from
the young.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your
claims with examples from the required resources and/or other

SOC 120 Week 3 DQ 2 Regulating Off-Duty
Conduct
For more classes visit
www.snaptutorial.com
The purpose of this discussion is to give you the opportunity to apply
ethical theories and perspectives to modern issues of the workplace.
Off-duty conduct away from the workplace can be monitored and
reported in many ways. These ways have only grown due to the
increase in social media use, which provides employers far greater
opportunities to become aware of what employees do outside of the
workplace. Some types of behaviors are especially concerning, as
they may have on-duty consequences. Other types of off-duty
behavior, however, are more difficult to clearly define as grossly
inappropriate and warranting employer intervention. But who draws
this line, and what are the ethical implications of where the line is
drawn? Prepare and post a response to the following prompt:
Using the resources provided, your own research, and your
knowledge of the ethical concepts from the text, consider the issue of
off-site monitoring of conduct:
 Considering your own work experience, imagine a circumstance
in which your supervisor monitored your behavior off the job.
Describe the circumstances, including how and why your
conduct was monitored.
 Would you consider your example to involve a minor, moderate,
or severe invasion of an individual’s privacy? Explain your
reasoning. Share your unemotional, well-defined, evidence-
based response to your boss to support your viewpoint.
 What issues do you believe led to your employer monitoring
you? Use one ethical theory or perspective to help support your
employer’s viewpoint, and use a scholarly source as your
evidence.
 What about your viewpoint as the employee? Use one ethical
theory or perspective to support an employee’s right to privacy
outside of work, and use a scholarly source as your evidence.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your
claims with examples from the required resources and/or other
scholarly sources, and properly cite any references in APA style

SOC 120 Week 4 DQ 1 Equal Access To
Healthcare
For more classes visit
www.snaptutorial.com
This discussion presents the opportunity for you to address the
inequality of access to health care in the United States using moral
and ethical reasoning. There is overwhelming evidence that social
inequalities affect health outcomes. Many argue that lack of health
care access due to poverty is a human rights concern in the United
States that should be subject to public and social justice inquiry. As
such, the Affordable Care Act was implemented to promote health
equity. While there are some that have reported favorable outcomes
with respect to health care access, others have reported unfavorable
experiences.
What is your perspective on the ethics of providing universal health
care to all U.S. citizens, and how well do you think the Affordable
Care Act has addressed this cause? Prepare an academically-
informed post to address this question. In doing so, consider both the
ethical and moral reasons for supporting the implementation of the
Affordable Care Act and also a possible shortfall or problem with this
policy. You may talk about your own experiences but must also use
academic research to support your arguments.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your

Deserts
For more classes visit
www.snaptutorial.com
The purpose of this discussion is to offer you the opportunity to
debate the issue of food justice and food deserts. Food deserts are
significant issues in poorer neighborhoods in the United States. In
many of these neighborhoods,the only access to food is through local
convenience stores or fast food restaurants. This severely limits the
options for the poor to have access to fresh, wholesome food and has
been evidenced as a key reason for the obesity epidemic in the United
States. This issue is encompassed in the overarching topic of food
justice, which also highlightspublic access to genetically modified or
organic foods and the issues of equal access to positive food options
in light of public health and social inequality. Prepare and post a
response to the following prompt:
Read the Hilmers article, Neighborhood Disparities in Access to
Healthy Foods and Their Effects on Environmental Justice. Assume
that your town is a food desert and you would like to do something
about it. Prepare an argument to present to your local town council
that outlines an idea to offer healthy food options to your town. Use at
least one ethical theory or perspective to support the moral or ethical
reasoning for why this program should be implemented.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your
claims with examples from the required resources and/or other
scholarly sources, and properly cite any references in APA style

  • 3. Identify and define each of the three dominantethical theories in Western philosophy. Describe a situation that you have faced recently that presented an ethical dilemma.

Support your claims with examples from the required resources and/or other scholarly sources, and properly cite any references in APA style ********************************************************** SOC 120 Week 2 Assignment Applying Theory Environmental Issues (2 PPT) For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com This Tutorial contains 2 Presentations Your 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 it 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 with a separate section under each slide for notes.  Choose one of the following topics or issues, and read about it at the indicated place:
  • 4. o Environmental justice and environmental racism (Read Environmental Justice for All) o Environmental harm, like the pollution of air and water (Read Chapter 8 in the textbook) o Waste reduction (Read Chapter 8 in the textbook)  Select one philosophical theory (i.e., utilitarianism, deontology, or virtue ethics). Consider the following questions pertaining to the theory you have selected:  What does the theory tell us about how things operate in the real world?  What is the focus of the theory? That is, what aspects of everyday life (or what questions) does the theory address?  How does the theory simplify complex issues to make them more understandable? Another way to think about this is to consider the concepts that make up the theory. Identify the concepts and how they are related to each other.  The focus 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 both the theory and topic you are analyzing. It may help to think in terms of different realms or institutions. Does the theory help 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.  Develop one thesis question that applies your philosophical theory to your environmental issue. You will address this question by developing an argument that links the theory to the issue (through your notes and pictures), so make sure you word your question carefully to accomplish this task. Indicate this thesis question on your second slide (the one after the title slide).  To add notes to your slide, go the section at the bottom of each slide in PowerPoint and click on the option that says “Click to add notes.” Type your notes into that section.
  • 5.  Make sure your presentation focuses on ethical arguments and avoids personal opinion, arguments based on politics, economics, religion, or topics other than ethics.  Next, develop an ethical argument that addresses your question. Use the text and/or other academic sources to support your position. Build your argument by writing nine clear sentences. Each sentence should make one important point aboutthe ethical aspects of the environmental issue you are analyzing and should be placed on one slide each.  Underneath each slide, you will also add presentation notes. This is written information that you would normally say or share with an audience during a presentation, but they do not show up in the presentation. Your notes should also make use of at least two academic sources and elaborate on the image and sentence in each slide.  Next, find a photo or image to illustrate each slide, and post it on the slide above the sentence. Search the Internet for photos or images that are appropriate. Make sure the photos or images you use are not copyright protected; you should only use photos or images that are in the public domain. Also, make sure you cite the sources from which you retrieved your photos or images directly underneath the photo on each slide. The final PowerPoint slideshow should consist of 12 slides. There should be one slide for the title page, one slide for your 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 in addition to the textbook as references. So you will use a total of at least three academic sources. 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 (e.g., PDF files, Word documents, etc.) are not acceptable. If you are unfamiliar with how to use PowerPoint, see Basic tasks in PowerPoint 2010.

  • 16. The purpose of this discussion is to give you the opportunity to apply ethical theories and perspectives to modern issues of the workplace. Off-duty conduct away from the workplace can be monitored and reported in many ways. These ways have only grown due to the increase in social media use, which provides employers far greater opportunities to become aware of what employees do outside of the workplace. Some types of behaviors are especially concerning, as they may have on-duty consequences. Other types of off-duty behavior, however, are more difficult to clearly define as grossly inappropriate and warranting employer intervention. But who draws this line, and what are the ethical implications of where the line is drawn? Prepare and post a response to the following prompt: Using the resources provided, your own research, and your knowledge of the ethical concepts from the text, consider the issue of off-site monitoring of conduct:  Considering your own work experience, imagine a circumstance in which your supervisor monitored your behavior off the job. Describe the circumstances, including how and why your conduct was monitored.  Would you consider your example to involve a minor, moderate, or severe invasion of an individual’s privacy? Explain your reasoning. Share your unemotional, well-defined, evidence- based response to your boss to support your viewpoint.  What issues do you believe led to your employer monitoring you? Use one ethical theory or perspective to help support your employer’s viewpoint, and use a scholarly source as your evidence.  What about your viewpoint as the employee? Use one ethical theory or perspective to support an employee’s right to privacy outside of work, and use a scholarly source as your evidence. Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length.

What is your perspective on the ethics of providing universal health care to all U.S. citizens, and how well do you think the Affordable Care Act has addressed this cause?
