ethics question

I’m working on a Linguistics exercise and need support.

Summary:

Use a word document to submit your answers. Don’t copy the questions. Number your answers.

Part 1: Read the following dilemmas. Respond to the questions that follow. Refer to the rubrics below (12 points)

1. Mary and Joann were roommates at Ivy University. Although Mary and Joanne were enrolled in the Dietetics major, they weren’t in the same classes. Mary had started at Ivy U, but Joanne transferred from Brown Junior College at the beginning of her sophomore year. Knowing that Mary was a good student, Joanne asked to borrow her class notes. Mary didn’t mind. But when Joanne asked to use one of her papers that reviewed the literature on bulimia, Mary didn’t know what to do. Joanne was a good roommate, and she didn’t want to lose her friendship. Besides, Joanne was always generous with her. She often loaned sweaters and other clothes and took her home with her on weekends.

a. How should you solve this dilemma if you were in Mary’s position? Discuss your alternatives. What are the consequences for those alternatives?

b. Which principles/values are affected and how? Which ethical framework you used to resolve the dilemma?

2. Doug was an undergraduate research assistant to his favorite professor. Dr. Brown was active within the University and was often busy conducting workshops at national meetings or with speaking engagements. Doug had worked with Dr. Brown for two years and had been able to virtually take over the daycare project. Dr. Brown was pleased with his work, and Doug was proud to be asked to submit a written draft of the research findings. Dr. Brown gave a few suggestions for revision, and Doug completed the paper and delivered it to Dr. Brown’s office. In a few days, Doug received a message, “Well done. Thanks.” Doug graduated soon after and entered graduate school at another university. That first year in graduate school he had an occasion to choose a small research project for one of his classes, and he decided to do a small pilot follow-up study of his undergraduate research experience. As he was updating his review of the literature, he found an article written by Dr. Brown. Doug thought it sounded familiar, and he checked it out. Yes, it was familiar; it was his own work—word for word! What should he do? First-year grad students don’t have much power. Would anyone believe him?

a. What would you do if you were in Doug’s place? Discuss your alternatives. What are the consequences for those alternatives?

b. Which principles/values are affected and how? Which ethical framework you used to resolve the dilemma?

3. You are a teacher at a university. You have a student who is from a single parent family (she lives with only her mother). The student must work to attend and pay for college. However, the student’s job is interfering with the student’s performance and several assignments have not been turned in/submitted. You have determined that a “D” is all the student can make in your class. However, the student’s adviser informs you that the student needs a “C” to keep the academic scholarship that helps pay for college.

a. What would you do? Discuss your alternatives. What are the consequences for those alternatives?

b. Which principles/values are affected and how? Which ethical framework you used to resolve the dilemma?
