Required Resources: Thinking Critically About Ethical Issues 8th edition by Vincent Ruggiero
Read/review the following resources for this activity:
- Textbook: Chapter 8
- Minimum of 1 professional ethics code
Different ways to analyze ethical behaviors and dilemmas exist, and many of them will help direct you to the correct or “best” solution to a problem. As we discussed in Week 1, sometimes right vs. right or wrong vs. wrong decisions have to be made.
In the lesson this week, you are given three ethical dilemma resolution models to try out on a dilemma provided there. Please review that interactive before working on this assignment
Initial Post Instructions
For this discussion, address one of the following questions:
- Review the sample solution to the Laura Nash method. Do you agree with that analysis? If so, what parts do you think really helped you work through the dilemma? If not, which parts do you not agree with?
- Review the sample solution to the Front Page of the Newspaper method. Do you think this is one of those types of dilemmas for which this model works? If not, why not? If so, why? How did using this method help you work through the dilemma?
- Review the sample solution to the Blanchard and Peale method. Do you agree with the analysis? If not, why not? If so, in what way did this help you analyze this dilemma?
Be sure to show that you have viewed the lecture and interactive and that you attempted an analysis for “high quality” posts this week.
