Commentary 2

Movie: Seventy-two Tenants (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elWEFDqTf7s)

After watching the movie, you should write two arguments, and the reading and the movie should use quote


1. Purpose: to cultivate the habits of critical reading by making arguments and providing evidence

2. Content: identify an argument (not merely a topic) from a required reading (with direct quotations and page numbers) and discuss it in relation to the designated film of the day

3. Focus: your ability to articulate someone else’ argument and state your interpretation of a film in relation to that argument; mere factual information or plot summary won’t count as argument

4. Length: 1 double-space page or 350 words for each short paper; the portion in excess of the limit will not be graded for credit

5. Grading: out of 10 points for each commentary, 3 for identification of an argument and logical transition, 3 points for film discussion focused on details, and 4 for writing (grammar, expression, coherence, style)

6. Make sure you have a clear argument or statement: find a focus to organize your writing

7. A general plot or characterization summary earns little credit

8. Analyze film in detail (e.g., mise-en-scene, smiles or other facial expressions, camera angles)

9. Rephrase key words for better connection between the reading and your film analysis (e.g., metaphor, allegory, realism)

10. Always use the readings assigned in the same week as primary films; the same formula for commentaries 2-3

11. You only need to quote from 1 reading in the week, NOT 1 from each reading in the week

12. Your quote must be relevant to the rest of your discussion

13. Avoid a long quote or 2 or more quotes in a commentary

14. Similarly, avoid discussing 2 or more ideas because there is no space to do that adequately

15. Proofread your paper or grade yourself to improve before submitting

16. No need for a separate Works Cited page, but use in-text reference (e.g., Teo, page #)

Assignment 2: Preparation for Generating a Policy Proposal

Assignment 2: Preparation for Generating a Policy Proposal

Although some states and cities have passed laws to ban texting and using handheld phones while driving, there is no current law to ban all cell phone use while driving. However, according to the National Safety Council (2009), 28 percent of all crashes—1.6 million per year—are caused by cell phone use and texting by drivers. The mission of a new national nonprofit organization called FocusDriven, patterned after Mothers Against Drunk Driving, is to make phone use while driving as illegal and socially unacceptable as drunk driving. US Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood supports FocusDriven and its efforts.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, LaHood said that this movement would become “an army of people traveling the countryside” to push for bans on cell-phone use and tough enforcement (Schmitz, 2010). As a political advocate interested in this issue, you will be writing a policy proposal that utilizes the current research to propose a solution to the issue and submitting it in Module 5.

Annotated Bibliography: Effect of Cell Phone Use 

Before you can write this proposal research, you will need to conduct initial research on the science behind this initiative. For this assignment, use the Argosy University online library resources to locate research reports from peer-reviewed journals that discuss the effects of cell phone use on vision, attention, perception, or memory. In selecting at least five research reports from peer-reviewed journals relevant to the topic, make sure they address one or more of the following issues:

  • How do texting, handheld phones, and hands-free phones compare with each other in their effects on driving?
  • How do other, traditional distractions compare to cell phone use in their effects on driving (such as eating, attending to children, talking to passengers, listening to music/news, etc.)?
  • Can cell phone use while driving be compared with drunk driving? Why or why not?
  • What other variables (such as age) can affect driving while using a cell phone?

Based on your reading of the five articles, create an annotated bibliography for each of the five sources. Each annotation should consist of the APA reference entry followed by a paragraph-long summary of the articles. In your summary, provide answers for the questions below. For the last question, think about how the research results could be generalized to fit other environments or not be generalized.

  • Summarize the main ideas in the reference. What were they investigating?
  • How were the studies conducted? What was the sample size? Is it appropriate?
  • Were the studies conducted in the real world or was a simulated environment used?
  • How might these methodological considerations affect the research findings and the conclusions drawn from them? How does this article fit in with your paper? How did it influence your own ideas about your paper?

Your annotated bibliography should be at 3–4 pages in length. Click here for the annotated bibliography template. This document will help you complete your paper more successfully.

Be sure to include a title page and reference page listing your articles. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M4_A2.doc.

Evaluating Inherited Disease

For this Assignment you will think about your individual health and health risks. What genetic diseases or problems might you face during your lifetime? Predisposition to heart disease, breast cancer, diabetes? You may consider your own health risks or those of other individuals such as a family member or friend. Then, in a paper of 750–1,000 words, address the following issues:

  • What genetic diseases or problems were determined to be potential issues?
  • Provide an introduction of the disease, outlining the major signs/symptoms of the disorder and the reason why this was selected as a genetic/inherited disease?
  • Research the mode of inheritance for this disease/trait? Why? If you are not able to find a specific mode of inheritance, provide a hypothesis for the mode of inheritance. Explain your thinking here very thoroughly; this should take up about half of the length of the Assignment.
  • What other information would help you draw better conclusions about this disease?
  • What problems did you encounter in gathering information about your family’s history or that of the person you interviewed?
  • If you were to have a child, what could you tell him or her about his/her chances of inheriting the diseases based upon your research about the inheritability of the trait you are researching?

Finally, visit the KU library by clicking on the “Library” link on the KU Campus homepage. Select the option to perform an advanced search. Find two references that pertain to the disease/trait you selected. Record the methods that you used to discover these sources, and answer the following questions:

  • Which search term(s) did you use?
  • Did you use combinations of search terms?
  • Which methods resulted in the most “hits” or results?
  • Did you refine any of your searches? In other words, did you perform an initial search and then further narrow the results?

Also, briefly explain whether the references support or contradict your previous conclusions.

Discussion 1: Laws, Regulations, Policies, and Procedures

You are expected to adhere to laws, regulations, policies, and/or procedures applicable to your field experience setting. At times, these might conflict with the forensic psychology ethical codes and guidelines. In this case, you should attempt to resolve the conflict taking steps, such as working with the proper authorities, to make a conscious decision of whether to follow the ethical code or the regulation, procedure, or law that conflicts (Fisher, 2009). Some field experience settings provide structured training or manuals to follow, while do not. As a forensic psychology professional, it is your responsibility to ensure you are knowledgeable about the laws, regulations, policies, and/or procedures applicable to your field experience setting as well as the steps to take if they conflict with ethical codes and guidelines.

A description of one law, regulation, policy, or procedure applicable to your field experience setting that you would find most challenging or difficult to adhere to and explain why. Then describe one that you think is of great importance in your field experience setting and explain why. Be specific.

Short Paper On Mill – Prof Maurice Only

Mill famously argued that the ethical action is what leads to the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest number of people. Please write an essay about Mill’s utilitarian ethical theory that answers the following questions:


  1. Does utilitarian theory require us to–somehow–have certain knowledge about the future? Can we identify which actions will cause the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest number of people without having certain knowledge of the future?
  2. Can a utilitarian consistently reject as immoral the enslavement of a small group of people whose enslavement brings great happiness to a much larger group of people?
  3. Do either of these two problems (the ‘knowing the future’ problem and the ‘justification of slavery’ problem) mean that utilitarianism is an unsatisfactory ethical theory? Why or why not?

Please ensure that your essay addresses each component of the assigned questions and that your answer is well-organized, uses excellent, college-level prose, and makes judicious use of textual evidence. Your essay should be 600 words long
