Room for Debate Paper Assignment
The Room for Debate Paper assignment asks you to both summarize and evaluate four editorial articles written for the New York Time’s “Room for Debate” series topic: “Have Christians Created a Harmful Atmosphere for Gays?”
You will be using the Holistic Critical Thinking Rubric (HCTSR) to evaluate each of the editorial articles. See Chapter One of the textbook.
• Having written your paper outline and read my comments, it is now time to write the actual paper. *You need to address all my comments in your outline to obtain a good grade.
• Think of your paper outline as the skeleton of the actual paper. Now it is time to add meat to the skeleton.
• This means that you are no longer using bullet points but writing a paper that includes paragraphing and smooth transitioning between paragraphs with proper citing and punctuation.
• Refer to the writing help guides posted in Canvas if needed and/or consult with the Limestone OWL (Online Writing Lab/Center) if needed.
• Review the paper assignment grading rubric prior to writing your paper so that you understand the grading criteria for the paper assignment.
NOTE: The paper assignment tests your ability to critically evaluate the four editorial articles assigned. I will be assessing you on your critical thinking skills as you assess the critical thinking skills of the authors who wrote the editorials.
Refer to the Room for Debate Paper Grading Rubric for grading expectations for this assignment.
To access the four editorial articles, click here:
1. Introduction and Thesis (for the whole paper, not for every author/editorial article)
a. Introduce your paper.
b. For your thesis, review the Writing FAQs guide for thesis help, if needed. Basically, your thesis should inform the reader the main gist and direction of your paper.
2. Summary:
a. State each author’s stance on the topic. Does he/she agree or disagree with the topic?
b. Include no more than three main points for each author/article.
c. Avoid using quotes – I want to see that you understand what the author is trying to say in your own words. Refer to the Summary Writing Guide posted in Canvas under Helpful links if you are not sure how to write a summary.
3. Evaluation using the HCTSR
a. Explain what the HCTSR is
b. Identify two HCTSR critical thinking skills (or lack of skills) for each author and provide an HCTSR rating based on these skills or lack of skills.
c. Select relevant quotes from each author to demonstrate these HCTSR critical thinking skills or lack of skills that you have identified.
d. Explain in detail how these quotes demonstrate the HCTSR skills or lack of skills you identified.
e. Using terminology from the textbook will show me that you are knowledgeable of the material and will therefore be to your benefit.
Examples for the Evaluation section: (include exact terminology from the textbook – see Section 3e.)
EXAMPLE 1: Two HCTSR critical thinking skills:
“Offers analyses and evaluations of obvious alternative points of views.”
“Fair-mindedly follows where evidence and reasons lead.”
HCTSR rating is “3” Acceptable.
EXAMPLE 2: Two HCTSR critical thinking skills (lack of skills)
“Fails to identify or hastily dismisses strong, relevant counterarguments.”
“Exhibit close-mindedness and hostility to reason.”
HCTSR rating is “1” Weak.
NOTE: Citing and correct punctuation are required for the above as you are using terminology from a source.
4. Conclusion:
a. This should sum up your whole paper and not for each editorial article.
b. Provide your thoughts on the topic
5. Citation Style and Format:
This course uses the MLA citation format. Cite and punctuate appropriately. Refer to the Library Citation guide and/or consult with the Limestone OWL if you need citing and writing help.
NOTE: The paper should be between 5-7 pages, NOT including the Works Cited page. Please use the file endings and document format as stated in the course syllabus. For example, PDF format is not acceptable.


Share with your classmates, which populations you believe pose the greatest risks for the breach of confidentiality?

Confidentiality is a complex responsibility with both legal and ethical implications. The more a human services professional considers the legal ramification of confidentiality, the clearer it become that the most matters are not so neatly defined. Even if professionals have become familiar with local and state laws that govern their profession, this legal knowledge alone is not enough to make sound decisions.
In an effort to reflect on the basic issues surrounding confidentiality. When you have completed this task, address the following:
Share with your classmates, which populations you believe pose the greatest risks for the breach of confidentiality?
Share with your classmates, three ways in which you will consider the use of cellular phones and electronic mail communications when discussing client progress than you would have prior to this course.
Consider the Jaffee Case located in Chapter 6 and share with your classmates ways in which the case extended confidentiality privilege? What might be the consequences of the Jaffe case for human service professionals and their clients?
Lastly, select one of the following legal cases located in Chapter 6 (Tarasoff, Bradley, Jablonski, or Hedlund) and provide your interpretation of the implications that these cases have in human services practice currently.

What would you do if an interviewer asked you a question that made you uncomfortable?

What would you do if an interviewer asked you a question that made you uncomfortable? How would you answer questions about your personal or home life, for example? Why should that matter to an employer? What can you do if an employer asks something wholly inappropriate or illegal? Also, has the interview process changed in the age of social distancing? If so, how? Provide examples. What makes for an excellent virtual interview? What things must you, as the interviewee, do when interviewing virtually? Provide examples. Your query or post must have a minimum of 200 words (typed and checked for grammar errors) that encourage further examination, exploration, and discussion.


But you need to realize that this is ok in terms of practicing a new habit.

Instructions: For this assignment, you will choose 1 habit that you want to develop. Specifically, I encourage you to choose an entrepreneurial habit like getting more comfortable with failing, getting out of your comfort zone, or learning one new piece of information every day. It could be a personal development habit, such as using your phone less or reading more. Choose a habit, come up with a plan, and implement it for 1 week.
write-up includes:
Detailed account of what habit you chose and why
Layout of your plan implemented including daily schedules and your adherence to those schedules
Daily stoic questions diary – Every end of day during your week, you must answer the questions below.
What have I done wrong this day? Condemn the action, not the person
What did I accomplish this day? What did I do right?
What did I miss? What could you have done?
A final reflection on what happened, what it was like, how did it feel, any failures you encountered, what you did to overcome failure
There are four tips to building new habits.
Start with a small habit.
Make the habit so small you can’t say no. Make the habit so easy you can get it done without a ton of motivation. Make the habit so small that you don’t have to psych yourself up each day to do it. For example, say you want to start a habit of doing push-ups every day. Start with 5 a day instead of 50.
2. Increase your habit in small ways.
After you start small, you need to gradually improve your habit. Even a 1% improvement can add up fairly quickly. With our push-up example, you could do 5 a day for a week, then go to six a day the following week.
3. As you gradually build up your habit break the habit into small chunks.
It is critical to keep each habit reasonable. Why? You need to keep momentum going and to make the behavior as easy as possible to accomplish. When you get your push-ups to 20 a day, you may want to do 10 push-ups twice a day instead of 20 all at once.
4. Plan to fail
The boxer Mike Tyson said, “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.” Understand that you probably will get punched in the face at times and fail. But you need to realize that this is ok in terms of practicing a new habit. It’s important that you don’t get defeated and continue to get back on the horse.
Now it’s time to apply these tips and start incorporating a new habit into your life.

Paper 1. Handout The Things They Carried
Attached Files: Paper 1 The Things They Carried.docx (15.362 KB)
Assignment 1: Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried
Length: 5 pages (plus Works Cited page); Submitted through
Blackboard. (Please attach your paper as a Word or PDF)
Choose two or three Tim O’Brien short stories covered in class. You probably should reread the story (or stories) several times to be familiar
with the narrative, characters and themes. The paper should be about a theme that interests you. (Some possible themes include: courage,
alienation, group identity, ghosts, death, friendship, revenge, storytelling, etc.) Once you’ve chosen a theme, start to think about how O’Brien
conveys it? You should consider plot, story structure, language, character, and metaphor. (Remember: the paper is 5 pp, so you may only need
to examine one or two of these themes.)
Consider one of the following questions to help you formulate a thesis:
1) How do ghosts function as a metaphor in “The Things They Carried,” “Speaking of Courage,” or “The Lives of The Dead”?
2) What is the significance of place in “The Things They Carried” “The Sweetheart of Song Tra Bong,” or “Speaking of Courage”?
3) What is O’Brien saying about storytelling in “How to Tell a War Story,” and/or “The Lives of The Dead”?
4) In “How to Tell a Good War Story,” what does O’Brien mean when he writes “a thing my happen and be a total lie; another thing
may not happen and be truer than the truth” (p 83) and how might that statement also apply to “The Sweetheart of The Song Tra
Bong” or “The Lives of The Dead”?
5) What does “The Sweetheart of The Song Tra Bong” and “The Things They Carried” say about the transformative power of war?
IMPORTANT: Your paper must have a thesis-a guiding, arguable point that you are trying to make. It is important to remember that in
examining and discussing a theme, you are trying to make a point. All evidence that you supply from the text must relate to your thesis and
advance your argument. I want you to be authoritative and focused. Tell me about those aspects of the story that bolster your argument, and do
not waste space telling me how much you like the story. Don’t waste time summarizing unnecessary plots or describing minor characters. Any
plot summaries should be brief and integral to providing context for your thesis. Direct quotes, on the other hand, provide compelling
Show knowledge of the names of characters and author. Use present tense, include a bibliography as learned in English 101 and make sure all
quotes are correctly attributed (using MLA parenthetical method of author and page number). To help with writing, grammar, and citation and
bibliography, consult a writing handbook (I’ve posted one on blackboard) and/or (a great resource for all your
writing needs). Remember: An unattributed quote or idea (from any source) is plagiarism and grounds for class failure.
Your paper should be 5 pages, plus a Works Cited page, double-spaced, titled and numbered as shown in the MLA formatting handout posted
on Blackboard. Pay attention to technical errors: I don’t want to be distracted from your ideas. Inattention to grammar undermines your
attempts to inform and enlighten; it also lowers the grade of your paper.


Please review the rubric.

Answer each discussion question. Reference in APA style all information from any and all sources, including the lectures, textbook, websites, etc.
1. What factors are important to consider when thinking about taking a carbohydrate supplement (examples: sports drink or energy chew) or a protein supplement (examples: protein powder/drink or individual amino acids)? Why are these factors important?
2. Do you think these products are necessary to help meet the nutritional needs of athletes? Why or why not?
3. Do you think these products are effective? Why or why not?
4. Do you think these products are worth the time and money that is spent to obtain them? Why or why not?
Please review the rubric.

Business and Management

Often, the implementation of a strategy is vastly more important than its formulation.

For this assignment, you will develop a strategic audit using the case located here. This is a major assignment that utilizes a variety of concepts addressed in this course. The grading rubric that your instructor will use to evaluate your strategic audit can be viewed here. Be sure to consider the following as you complete this assignment:
Follow the progression of components included in the grading rubric. Use a heading for each component and cover everything in the same order as what appears in the rubric. This will allow your instructor to more easily grade your strategic audit, and will help to ensure that you receive the best grade possible.
Do not leave anything out! Any item on the rubric that is not completed will receive a score of zero (0).
Please do your own work! You can discuss the case with your classmates, but your submission should be your own. Make sure that you appropriately reference all sources. DO NOT copy from some other student’s audit of the case that has BEEN posted on the internet (this will quickly be flagged by the Turnitin plagiarism detection software).
Outside research is required. Library or Internet research is often necessary to identify members of the corporation’s top management and board of directors, or to supplement industry and/or firm information provided in the case material.
Please stay true to the ending date of each case. Information made available after the ending date of the case should not be considered in your analysis. Just because a firm chose a particular course of action does not mean that it was correct in doing so.
Many of the items in a strategic audit lend themselves to lists or bullets. Although you are not required to use complete sentences in those portions of the audit, careful attention to grammar, mechanics, spelling, and proofreading will increase the likelihood of a good grade.
In grading your strategic audit, your instructor will give the most consideration to the quality of your analysis. Analysis focuses on meaning. Merely listing facts is not sufficient, even if you list great numbers of them. Your understanding of the meaning and implication of the facts is critical. For example, it does little good to compare financial ratios with industry averages unless you use that information to determine the financial condition of the firm and the implications for strategy formulation and implementation.
Students are often tempted to give little effort to the final sections of a strategic audit, especially those focused on implementation and evaluation/control. Often, the implementation of a strategy is vastly more important than its formulation. Omitting or giving little attention to the final sections of your strategic audit will result in a significantly lower grade.
