I will be putting particular weight on Parts Two and Three of the structure of this paper.

Title page2. The research paper 3. Works Cited page General Concerns:Your biggest challenge is choosing an ethical dilemma that is specific enough to analyze. Remember, these papers are held confidential and although names should be changed to protect the innocent, I will not use this paper as a means to judge or persecute you. With this said, choose a dilemma where you have the ability to gather facts or recall facts for ethical analysis. A lot of thought should be put into this before ink gets to the page. Working on this the last week of the semester will bring disaster. Use the tutoring lab in the library to its full potential and meet with me as you see fit to help narrow your topic.
