3. Using the essays in Modern Ethics in 77 Arguments as a model for your own thinking and writing, research a contemporary ethical issue and present an ethical argument of your own.

 Begin with a question: Are vaccine mandates ethical during a global pandemic? 

Does the United States have a moral responsibility to support Ukraine? etc. Write an essay incorporating 4-5 research sources that represent varying viewpoints and defend a position of your own. 

*Before starting your research, email your question to me for approval.

Use your critical thinking skills to probe the topic and challenge your audience. Always assume that your reader is intelligent, educated, and skeptical. 

Be sure to address any objections that such a reader might raise. Present credible evidence and sound reasoning to support your claims.
