Applying Theory: Environmental Issues


SOC 120  Assignment

Applying Theory: Environmental Issues

The goal of 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 understand how human interactions with the natural environment raise ethical concerns. You will do this by preparing and posting a PowerPoint Slideshow.

Choose one of the following topics/ issues and read about it at the indicated place:

Environmental Justice/ environmental racism (Article: Environmental Justice for All)

Environmental harm/ pollution of air and water (Chapter 8 in the textbook)

Waste reduction (chapter 8 in the textbook)

Select one philosophical theory (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 does the theory address? Another way to think about this is to consider what questions the theory is addressing?

The focus (or questions) help you think about the topical boundaries of the theory- This course is about ethics and social responsibility and you should concentrate on the ethical and moral aspects of the theory and of the topic you are analyzing. It may  help to think in terms of different realms or institutions does the theory help to explain peoples behavior from a political perspective? From an economic perspective? From a religious perspective? From an ethical perspective? Try to sort through everything that does not represent an ethical question, and address only the ethical issues.

How does the theory simplify complex issues to make them more understandable? Another way to think about this is to consider what the elements- or-concepts- that make up the theory are. Identify the concepts and how they are related to each other.

Develop one thesis question that applies your philosophical theory to your environmental issue. You will address this question in developing an argument that links to theory to the issue (Through your notes and pictures), so make sure you word your questions carefully to accomplish this task.

Develop an argument that addresses your question. Build your argument by writing nine sentences. Each sentence should make one important point about the ethical aspects of the environmental issue you are analyzing and will be placed on one slide each. Make sure your argument focuses on ethical arguments, and avoid personal opinion, or arguments based on politics, economics, religion, or topics other than ethics.

Create a  PowerPoint Slideshow to present your argument. Begin by inserting your argument into the slideshow using the “notes” feature at the bottom of each slide. Click on the box that says “click to add notes” and type one sentence at the bottom of each slide. Your sentences and slides should link together to form your argument.

Find photos to illustrate each sentence, and post the photo on the slide above the note. You can use your own personal photos or can search the internet for photos that are appropriate. Make sure the photos are not protected from copying; you should only use photos that are in the public domain. Cite the sources from which you get your photos underneath the photo on each slide.

Your slideshow should present what you would usually write in a paper. The slideshow should be 11 slides long (1 slide for the title page, 9 slides for your arguments, 1 slide for references). All citations and references should be in APA format.

Only serious people that know how to follow directions and do not use any plagiarism need to do this

Clinical Decision Support Systems

Clinical Decision Support Systems


The ideas and beliefs underpinning the discussions guide students through engaging dialogues as they achieve the desired learning outcomes/competencies associated with their course in a manner that empowers them to organize, integrate, apply and critically appraise their knowledge to their selected field of practice. The ebb and flow of a discussion is based upon the composition of student and faculty interaction in the quest for relevant scholarship.

Activity Learning Outcomes

Through this discussion, the student will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Contribute level-appropriate knowledge and experience to the topic in a discussion environment that models professional and social interaction (CO4)
  • Actively engage in the written ideas of others by carefully reading, researching, reflecting, and responding to the contributions of their peers and course faculty (CO5)


Post a written response in the discussion forum to EACH threaded discussion topic:

  1. This week we learned about the potential benefits and drawbacks to clinical decision support systems (CDSSs). Create a “Pros” versus “Cons” table with a column for “Pro” and a separate column for “Con”. Include at least 3 items for each column. Next to each item, provide a brief rationale as to why you included it on the respective list.
  2. The primary goal of a CDSS is to leverage data and the scientific evidence to help guide appropriate decision making. CDSSs directly assist the clinician in making decisions about specific patients. For this discussion thread post, you are to assume your future role as an APN and create a clinical patient and scenario to illustrate an exemplary depiction of how a CDSS might influence your decision. This post is an opportunity for you to be innovative, so have fun!

Adhere to the following guidelines regarding quality for the threaded discussions in Canvas:

For each threaded discussion per week, the student will select no less than TWO scholarly sources to support the initial discussion post.

Scholarly Sources: Only scholarly sources are acceptable for citation and reference in this course. These include peer-reviewed publications, government reports, or sources written by a professional or scholar in the field. The textbooks and lessons are NOT considered to be outside scholarly sources. For the threaded discussions and reflection posts, reputable internet sources such as websites by government agencies (URL ends in .gov) and respected organizations (often ends in .org) can be counted as scholarly sources. The best outside scholarly source to use is a peer-reviewed nursing journal.  You are encouraged to use the Chamberlain library and search one of the available databases for a peer-reviewed journal article.  The following sources should not be used: Wikipedia, Wikis, or blogs.  These websites are not considered scholarly as anyone can add to these. Please be aware that .com websites can vary in scholarship and quality.  For example, the American Heart Association is a .com site with scholarship and quality.  It is the responsibility of the student to determine the scholarship and quality of any .com site.  Ask your instructor before using any site if you are unsure. Points will be deducted from the rubric if the site does not demonstrate scholarship or quality. Current outside scholarly sources must be published with the last 5 years.  Instructor permission must be obtained BEFORE the assignment is due if using a source that is older than 5 years.






In this post, you will be challenged to look at how statistical tests, such as correlation are commonly used and the possible limitations of such analyses. In addition, you will need to identify the appropriate application of course-specified statistical tests, examine assumptions and limitations of course specified statistical tests, and communicate in writing critiques of statistical tests.
Much has been written about the relationship between students’ SAT test scores and their family’s income.  Generally speaking, there is a strong positive correlation between income and SAT scores.  Consider and discuss the following questions as you respond:

  • What does this correlation tell you?
  • Is this correlation evidence that having a high family income causes one to have high SAT scores?
  • Is this correlation evidence that high SAT scores are a cause of higher income? Or, does this tell you something else?  Explain your answer.
  • Explain why correlation alone is rarely sufficient to demonstrate cause.

Accepting Cultural Differences

Earl Whitecloud is an American high-school student. He is constantly teased and bullied by his classmates because he occasionally wears clothing that represents his Native-American heritage. As a result, Earl spends most of his time at school alone, is absent far more than the average student, and performs poorly at school. 

As Earl’s teacher, who acutely perceives the problem, you decide to devote a class period to talking about diversity and accepting cultural differences.

What three points will you emphasize the most and why?

Will you involve Earl in the discussion? Why or why not?

Week 8 Discussion Board

Consider auspicious timing, the Chinese zodiac, and speculation about the future in the “Lucky You” Power Point. A rationalist might look over our shoulder, and draw the conclusion that “Religion is simply organized superstition.” You are to read the provided 750-word article by Austin Cline, consider two opposing theses, select the thesis with which you most agree, and can sufficiently defend. Then you will construct an argument. 1-2 paragraphs will suffice. Be sure to consider the concepts, and demonstrate an understanding of how the two might or might not be related; how the two might be contrasted and compared. Organize your thinking, being mindful of critical thinking and clear, persuasive writing.

So where does superstition come into the picture? Or, in some sense can religion be thought of as organized or “advanced” superstition–while a bit more sophisticated than earlier magic, “religion” might still be considered by some as a more primitive and pre-scientific way of viewing reality and ascribing meaning to the events and exigencies of life? This is the issue facing us in Discussion Board #3. Read the Austin Cline piece below (approx 750 words), and follow the instructions, which entails constructing an argument. 

Consider two opposing theses, select the thesis with which you most agree, and can sufficiently defend. 1 – 2 paragraphs will suffice. Be sure to consider the concepts, and demonstrate an understanding of how the two might or might not be related; how the two might be contrasted and compared. Organize your thinking, being mindful of critical thinking and clear, persuasive writing.

600 Word English assignment

These papers must be at least 600 words and no more than 1000 (although no penalties for going over). Papers under 600 words receive no comments, are not graded using the rubric, and earn 33 points. Remember that one, single-spaced page of text equals about 350 words, so 600 words is approximately a two page paper. Quality is more important than quantity; a well-done 610-word paper may be stronger than a 999-word paper. So there’s no need to write to the upper limit of the requirements in order to earn a better grade. The word count must appear at the top of the paper or the paper will be penalized 2 points. Please do not claim that the paper has 601 words or more when it doesn’t: I’ll run a word count and discover this. The Works Cited page, the heading which includes your name/class # and title/assignment name/and word count, or bibliography (if included) is not included in the word count. Submit your paper via TurnitIn.

This paper discusses one or more of the theories or concepts in Race, Class & Gender. You may write about the theories or ideas in any of the essays we read.  Your paper should do one of three things: 

1. Analyze issues of race, class, and gender that you identify, using the theories and concepts from an essay or essays

2. Refute or otherwise elaborate on the theories or concepts presented in an essay or essays

3. Tie together two essays to demonstrate how the theories either work together or contradict one another.

The key to a successful paper is to analyze and use formal academic writing. For example, Andersen and Hill Collins use the phrase “matrix of domination” as an analytic tool that “sees social structure as having multiple, interlocking levels of domination that stem from social configuration of race, class, and gender relationships” (4). A paper that followed #1 (identifying and analyzing an issue) might take this “matrix of domination” and argue that the U.S. penal system is an excellent example of how systems of domination work together to situate people of color as more vulnerable to incarceration (meaning that power relations mean more non-white people go to jail than white people). An example of approach #2 might be to take Peggy McIntosh’s highly influential essay “White Privilege:  Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack” (49) and argue that the essay – while intending to show the invisible nature of white privilege – actually (albeit unintentionally) relies on black suffering as its primary theoretical tool, therefore, simply (and somewhat voyeuristically) reproducing black suffering as a tool for white people. An example of approach #3 might be to show how data and concepts in the essays “Policing the National Body” (343) and “Seeing in 3D” (286) reinforce the argument that larger economic and social structures uniquely position poor people as most likely to go to prison. 

A superior paper will not rely on examples from personal experience, but on the theories in our textbook, essays or analyses you find elsewhere, and your own analysis. Papers must include at least three quotations or direct references to reading from Race, Class & Gender and/or another academic source; these in-text quotations or references must be appropriately cited in either MLA or APA style. Papers must include a “Works Cited” page or bibliography.Position Papers Grading Rubric 

5 points: Meets the content requirements of the assignment (paper is on topic) 

10 points: grammar, punctuation, sentence construction (mechanics of writing), citations

10 points: specificity – the argument incorporates one or more of the following: concepts in 

Reconstructing Gender, specific events or social issues, personal examples 

10 points: original thinking – the paper reflects your own attempt to grapple with the topic, is not a recitation of someone else’s argument or ideas, but is your own argument or idea. 

15 points: complexity of analysis 

In each category, superior work is an A (5 or 9/10 points), strong work is a B (4 or 8 points), competent work is a C (3 or 7 points) and below standard work is a D (2 or 6 points). For papers two and three, adequate use of quotations and evidence will be assessed in the categories of specificity & complexity.

These are the two possible topics:  

In “The Color of Justice” there is a quote on page 444 that says, “Human Rights Watch reported in 2000 that, in seven states, African Americans constitute 80 to 90 percent of drug offenders sent to prison.  In at least fifteen states, blacks are admitted to prison on drug charges at a rate from twenty to fifty-seven times greater than that of white men.”  I think this quote illustrates how state enforcement can be based off of race.   The fact that a much higher percentage of African American men are sent to prison for drugs versus white men shows this unfair imbalance.  The essay “Rape, Racism, and the Law” by Jennifer Wriggins also discusses how African American men are more likely to be sent to prison for rape as well.  The readings this week really showed how race plays a role in shaping laws and state enforcement.


Another topical that was covered this week was sexual preference in the essay “Interpreting and Experiencing Anti-Queer Violence.”  Although this essay didn’t really talk about laws, it can definitely be related to laws in our country that hold back homosexual couples.  Gay marriage is a topic that is heavily discussed and I believe it is now legal in 35 of the states.  However, there is still 15 to go.  Sexual preference here clearly shapes the laws in quite a few states in the nation.
