Moral Reasoning Assignment

Instructions:
The aim of this exercise is to help you become familiar with the techniques of moral
reasoning and to encourage you to think critically about moral issues. Remember to
support your particular moral judgments about these cases with reasons. You should
aim to justify your particular moral judgments using relevant moral principles and
moral reasons. These principles may be very general, like the principle of utility
(‘maximize happiness’), or common deontological principles concerned with loyalty,
promise keeping, or those prohibiting deceiving and harming others, etc. Aim to
achieve a consistent fit between your moral beliefs, principles and particular
judgments. Refer to the readings for week 2 in order to find examples of moral
principles and reasons and explanations of moral reasoning and justification.
Make sure you answer every part of each question. Remember to provide sufficient
detail in Section C to give a clear indication of your overall position with regard tothe cases and the principles you endorse. This is a short answer assignment. You do
not need to answer the questions in the form of an essay. Please include a
bibliography with the main sources from the question and any additional sources
you reference directly. Include citations in the body of the assignment where
appropriate. You may use any of the major referencing styles provided you do so
consistently.

Forensic Anthropology (Bone Analysis)

 
For this assignment please follow the instruction. Color the areas on the Skeleton that is missing, complete the inventory sheet and Write a 3 page report. PLEASE SEE THE REST Of THE INSTRUCTIONS
please note that there is 3 part to his assignment, a coloring of the skeletal analysis, a inventory sheet and a 3 page report. Thank you

The Case Study will involve a case study analysis of forensic evidence. You will be provided with a case study concerning forensic anthropology from me. Write a 4 page report

This activity will provide you with experience in reviewing, evaluating, and interpreting forensic anthropology data and information. The activity will also give you a sense of how forensic anthropological evidence is used in criminal investigations.

You will prepare a report summarizing and evaluating the evidence in the case study.

Case Study has two parts:
•Part 1: Inventory: Describe the pieces of evidence that you have been provided using the proper inventory format, thus creating an inventory list of ALL bones. Be sure to indicate which skeletal elements are present and absent. What information can be determined from each item? (worth 15 of 100 points)
•Part 2: Final report: Write a final forensic anthropology skeletal report. Draw conclusions based on and supported by specific scientific evidence you have learned in this course. The report should be approximately 2 to 4 pages, with at least one paragraph dedicated to each demographic (sex, age, ancestry, trauma, etc). (worth 85 of 100 points)

Your inventory and final report should focus on skeletal or bone evidence, emphasizing forensic anthropology

CULTURES IN CONFLICT PAPERS (Anthropology)

 
The paper is more like four essay questions. You don’t need an overarching thesis, no introduction, no bibliography. Use the citation format provided in the “Student Guide to Writing the Final Paper” that I will upload it to you. You answer each question separately and then move on. I stated in the Final Paper Assignment from the papers I will proved you “Take the authors and their works one by one and explain why they would respond one way or the other…” I don’t expect you to spend time on authors that aren’t relevant to your answer. If you want, you could begin each answer by saying something like “I think that humans are natural born killers and I will support my position by citing evidence from Bodley 1, Ehrenreich 2, 3 and Ferguson 1. The other articles are not relevant in this case.”

That way you have mentioned the works that are relevant and left aside those that aren’t, something like that. It’s just a suggestion.

A question came up about #4 “Are they more intense today than in the past?” The “they” being referred to are violent conflicts.

Some comments also revolved around the relationship of the questions. Questions 2, 3, and 4 are indeed related. Question 2 is asking for causes of conflicts; question 3 is asking if they are becoming more common; and question 4 is asking if they are becoming more intense, meaning more destructive and more deadly. Keep them separate in your answers, but be aware that the same sources may have things to say that relate to all three questions. I know you will figure it out.

RUBRIC (also to be found in the Final Paper materials module on Canvas)

Some of you have asked for more rubric-like guidelines to the final paper. I am expecting you to write at least a bit more than a page per question. You may of course write more or less than that on any given question, but it should all add up to 4-6 pages. Here is a rubric that if you follow it, you will do just fine on the paper:

Your answers to the questions are clear (Maximum 12 pts)
Your answers are based on evidence taken only from the 6 sources (max 12pts)
You cite from all of the sources that pertain to your answers to the questions (max 20 pts)
The sources of evidence are cited correctly (max 12 pts)
You provide your own position on the questions at the end (max 12 pts)
Your sentences are grammatical and you use correct spelling (max 12 pts)
Total = 80 points

So if you competently perform those six steps as you are writing your paper and checking it over, then you will get a good score. If you do just an adequate job, then you will receive fewer points. Leaving one of the criterion out will cost you more points, and so on.
