AUCS 340: Ethics in the Professions Values Clarification Exercise Refer to chapter two, pages 16 – 20, in the “Ethics and Basic Law for Medical Imaging Professionals” textbook to complete this assignment. This assignment is divided into two parts. First Part: Answer the 49 questions that are part of the values clarification exercise on pages seventeen – nineteen. You will need to provide a list of your letter answers as the first part of this assignment. Keep a copy of these answers as they will be necessary to complete the second or written evaluation part of this assignment. Most statements cover general information that we need to think about whenever we have to make decisions regarding healthcare matters. I do appreciate that a few questions take the tone that you are considering working in the field of radiology or health care in general but please look at the content of the material and answer all questions to the best of your ability. When you answer each question try to answer on your first instinct rather than thinking of specific gray areas that might be taken into account when answering each statement. We will have the opportunity to discuss certain topics through the medical ethics case studies that will be posted to Blackboard later in the semester. This completes the first part of this assignment. When you submit your answers simply list each number, 1 – 49, and provide the lettered response to each question. Further analysis of your answers will occur in the second part of this assignment. Second Part: Complete the following written responses to the values clarification exercise you have just completed. Some of the responses will require graphic responses or data collection while others will require thoughtful and insightful written responses. Take time to reflect on your answers in each category prior to completing the written portion of this assignment. 1) Provide a general analysis of the categories into which ALL of your responses were listed – agree, disagree or neutral. ( You can group together the A’s and B’s for agree and D’s and E’s for disagree) You must provide a general numerical breakdown of how many agrees, disagrees or neutral you had for the 49 answers in the values clarification exercise. For example: 19 agrees, 3 neutral and 27 disagrees. This information should be presented in a pie chart or bar graph. 2) Now refer to pages 19 and 20 in your textbook to answer this question. Evaluate your responses by the ten categories listed in the text, i.e. death, human sexuality and reproduction, etc. Identify whether your answers for each category contained mostly agree, neutral or disagree. Again, graphic representation of the answers to this question is required. Graphic representation may take the form of bar graphs or pie charts for each category. 3) Indicate your age, gender and number of siblings in paragraph formation. Regarding siblings, where are you located in the family structure? 4) What is your major? Do you have a minor, if so name it? How do you plan to use your major (and minor) in your career? 5) Why did you enroll in a course regarding professional ethical behavior as part of your educational plan? Be specific here and offer an example related to your professional goals. 6) Overall evaluation of answers – Review the ten categories of answers and find at least one category where your answers were mostly agree or disagree. Now review the content of these questions and provide a written summary of why you think you agreed or disagreed with a majority of these answers: for example, was it due to personal experience(s), work, and/or reading of the question? 7) Overall evaluation of answers – Review the ten categories of answers and find at least one category where your answers were very different, possibly agree, neutral and disagree all in one category. Again, review the content of these questions and provide a written summary of why you think your answers were so divergent in this/these categories. 8) Did you have any category in which your responses were all neutral? Why is that? (If such a category did not exist for you may proceed directly to the question number nine.) 9) What did you learn about yourself and your ability to apply ethical reasoning from completing this medically based values clarification exercise? This assignment is due Saturday March 28th by noon. Grading: This assignment is divided into two parts: part one – list the individual answers to questions 1 – 49. Part two is more complex and includes graphic and written responses to multiple questions. A. 20% for answers to the 49 statements B. 40% for quality and thoroughness of responses, C. 20% for sentence structure, spelling and grammar, D. 20% for graphic demonstration of overall and individual responses to statements The written answers should be completed in 12 font, double spaced format. You should incorporate color into your graphic responses. It is expected that the written summary for questions three through nine in the second portion of this assignment will result in two – three pages of written text. Please note that this assignment is worth 20% of the total grading for this course.

ENG 100 – Critique Assignment Sheet Rough Draft Due for Peer Response: Tuesday, September 29 First Draft Due (submit for feedback): Thursday, October 1 Final Draft with Outline Due: Thursday, October 8 Highlighting, Labeling, and Reflection: Thursday, October 8 Submit hard copies in class and upload to turnitin.com (Password: English, Class ID: 10423941) What is a Critique? A critique is a “formal evaluation [that offers your] judgment of a text—whether the reading was effective, ineffective, valuable, or trivial.” In a critique, “your goal is to convince readers to accept your judgments concerning the quality of the reading” based on specific criteria you have established (Wilhoit 87). Additionally, a critique is comprised of many integrated parts: introduction to the text, introduction to and brief background on the general topic, brief summary properly placed in the essay, a discussion of the criteria chosen for evaluation, a discussion of the criteria using specific examples/information from the text (this discussion should be the largest section of your essay by far!!), instances of personal response, and a conclusion. All of these items should relate to your overall evaluation/thesis of the text. The Assignment: Instead of a written essay, your “text” will be either a movie or a documentary. You will follow the same standards that you would use for a critique based off of an essay but you will adapt the integrated parts to fit a film critique. In order to effectively address this assignment, complete the following steps: STEP I: Choose either a movie or documentary • Base your choice on the strength of your feelings, whether hate, love, respect, etc., because you do not have to like the film in order to write a solid and coherent critique. You might have more to say about a film you dislike. Also choose a genre of film that you understand (i.e. romantic comedy, drama, indie-film, comedy, documentary). • Think about the important components for this specific genre. STEP II: Watch and Annotate the film • Note the major points within the film, how you felt while watching it, and what made you feel that way. • Keep in mind the film’s genre and whether or not your chosen film fits any of those criteria. STEP III: Analyze (break the film into parts) • Break the film down into your genre-driven criteria. • Choose 4-5 criteria and then determine what sections/components of the film either represent effectiveness or ineffectiveness. STEP IV: Evaluate the film (using the criteria and your personal standards) • Evaluate the film according to the criteria list we will generate in class. • To help create your thesis claim, determine whether the film, based on your criteria and standards, is an excellent, mediocre, terrible, etc. representation of your chosen genre. • For example: While the costume and design are fantastic and interesting, the film 300 is a mediocre example of historical drama because the history of Greece and Asia is inaccurate and the female characters are weak. STEP V: Find outside sources—one should agree with you and one should disagree • Check out a review website, such as imdb.com, and locate a few reviews of your film. In your critique, you will be expected to reference other film reviewers to develop and support your own arguments. Please note that those reviews must be cited properly, both in-text citations and the Works Cited page entries. The basic structure of the critique is as follows: • An introduction that o Introduces the film and provides an adequate amount of background information, including the intended audience, to give the reader context (i.e. a cartoon might not be meant for college-age viewers) o Includes a thesis statement that presents the film as either an excellent, mediocre, or terrible representation of your chosen genre o Explains at least three-four different criteria as the basis for your thesis/argument • A summary that is o Brief, neutral and comprehensive o No more than one paragraph in length • Body Paragraphs including o Support of your thesis using specific examples from the film o More than one example to support your argument o Either direct quotes or paraphrased information from the source text, reviews, outside information (websites, blogs, credible sources) or a combination of all three to support your argument • A counter-claim o Based on an outside review/blog/article disagreeing with your opinion or one criteria o Includes either a refutation or concession of the reviewer’s opinion • A conclusion including o A restatement of your main points and thesis o A final recommendation • A Work Cited page that o Includes all referenced materials including the source text The bulk of your critique should consist of your qualified opinion of the film – unlike the summary, your opinion matters here. In the body of your paper, you will need about three to five main points to support your thesis statement. You will develop each of these points in a section of your essay, each section consisting of about three paragraphs. You will make claims in your topic sentences, provide examples from the text, and then explain your reasons, using source support where possible. Evaluation A successful critique will contain all of the following: • Creative and clearly stated criteria • A debatable thesis statement • A brief background and summary of the film • 80% of the essay is located within the body paragraphs • Topic sentences that transition from one criteria to the next • Body paragraphs clearly and accurately reflecting your criteria and opinion • Body paragraphs that include more than one example as support • Conclusion including a summation and thoughtful recommendation • Correct MLA documentation including signal phrases and in-text citations • A Work Cited page including all sources referenced • Correct grammar and mechanics • Effective and meaningful transitions • Meaningful and descriptive word choices • Literary present tense and grammatical 3rd person • Length of 3-5 pages • Follows the basic structure for a critique Possible Points (25 % of final grade): • Outline 5 % • Peer Response Workshop with Rough Draft 5 % • Highlighted Revisions, & Reflection 10 % • Final Draft: 80 % Upload to Turnitin.com, using Password: English and Class ID: 10423941. Your grade will not be finalized until you have done this.
Elastic Collision Write up for TA Jessica Andersen The following pages include what is expected for the PHY 112 Elastic Collision lab. Below each section heading are general tips for lab writing that can be applied to any lab in the future. Point values associated with each section are stated, as well are the points associated for topics within that section. Read through completely before beginning. Introduction ( 20 pts total ) Tips for a good Introduction section: Be thorough but do not write a five paragraph essay! Concisely present the purpose and background material. You don’t need to number equations unless you will be referring back to them. Simply explain what they apply to as you introduce them. A 2pt bullet should not correspond to more than two lines of writing in your report. – Include a statement of purpose for the lab. (5pts) – Define the necessary conditions of an Elastic Collision (5pts) – Introduce the concept of conservation of linear momentum and derive the equation for calculating linear momentum in the x-direction and the y direction. (5pts) – Introduce the concept of conservation of energy and derive the equation for calculating kinetic energy of the system before and after the collision. (5pts) Methods (10 pts total) Tips for a good Methods section: Don’t spend too much time on this section! Be very quick and to the point. Write as if you are giving instructions to someone else. This will sound much more professional and you won’t have to worry about the use of “I” or “we”, which can tend to make a lab report sound very informal. – Briefly describe the setup of the lab and what precautions were taken to ensure something close to an elastic collision (5pts) – What frequency was the “zapper” set to? (5pts) Results (25 pts total) Tips for a good Results section: This is an important section. It should be organized and formatted in a way that makes it very easy to read. Your tables should have borders and bolded headings where you see appropriate. Always include a brief description of each table at the opening of the section. REMEMBER, the Results section is about conveying your data in a readable and easy to understand way. • do not divide tables across pages • do not include more than 3 decimal places unless they are legitimately important – Include a table that summarizes all of the values recorded from the collision path. (5pts) – Include a table that displays the Kinetic Energy before and after the collision (5pts) – Include a table that displays the Linear Momentum in both directions before and after the collision (10pts) – Include a summary table that calculates the percent error between before collision values and after collision values. Use the before collision values as your theoretical value. (5pts) Discussion (40 pts total) Tips for a good Discussion section: This section is worth almost half of your report! I want to see that you put legitimate thought into your data and how it relates to what you learn in lecture. Show me that you understand the things we talked about in class. Be thorough, but remember that long and drawn out does not necessary achieve this. • do not present data as one large paragraph, make them smaller and easier to read • do not refer back to tables, actually state the values when asked for • you may refer back to graphs when necessary • do not use math vocabulary wrong, if you are unsure of a definition, look it up!!! – Present the percent error values for both momentum and energy calculations. (10pts) – Why was the energy and momentum BEFORE collision used as the theoretical value? (hint: It has to do with us assuming we have an Elastic Collision) (10pts) – Present the frequency of the “zapper”. What does this mean about the time that passes between each dot on the collision path? (10pts) – Discuss sources of error in this lab and how they may have affected our final result. (10pts) Appendix (5pts total) – Just staple on whatever notes you took in class.

Lab 1: Introduction to Motion You must make the following changes to your lab manual before coming to lab, not during lab! Do not plan to consult this sheet during lab. There is not enough time. The required changes must be in your lab manual in the proper sequence to complete the lab in a smooth and timely manner. You should bring this paper to lab but only for reference to the images printed below. You have been warned! A note about vector addition: Adding Vectors: To add these two vectors: means to place them head-to-tail like so: and therefore they equal: Subtracting Vectors: Subtracting these two vectors: is the same as the sum of one vector and the negative of the other: which is the same as: which means to place them head-to-tail like so: and therefore they equal: Pg. 7 Activity 1-3 Cross off Step 1 Cross off Step 2 Pg. 7 Step 3) Replace “Try to make each of the graphs …” with “Try to make one of the graphs…” Pg. 7 Step 4) Replace this step with: “Describe how you must move to produce the graph you selected. Note if you selected graph C your description is at the top of page 8. Pg. 8 Activity 2-1 Step 2) Replace: “(Just draw smooth patterns; leave out…” with “(Quickly draw smooth patterns; leave out…” Then highlight this entire sentence. + − + (− ) + Pg. 10 Step 3) Where it states “(Be sure to adjust the time scale to 15 s.)” The way to do this is to click this clock icon And change the “Duration:” value Pg. 11 Question 2-3) At the end of the question add the following: “See the top of page 12 for the rest of the question.” Pg. 13 Step 2) Highlight the part that states: “Get the times right. Get the velocities right. Each person should take a turn.” At the end of the paragraph add: “But do not spend too much time getting things perfect.” Pg. 15 Step 1) Where is states: “Use the analysis feature of the software to read values of velocity…” Do this: Click here and then move the mouse over the graph. You can now quickly read data from the graph.

SUMMARY ASSIGNMENT SHEET Upload to Turnitin.com by due date. Create an account using Class ID: 10423941 and Password: English. Due Dates: • Peer Response Workshop with Rough Draft: Tuesday, September 8th • First Draft Due (submit for feedback): Thursday, September 10th • Final Draft Due (highlighting, labeling & reflection done in class): Thursday, September 17th What is Summary? Summary is a comprehensive and objective restatement of the main ideas of a text (an article, book, movie, event, etc.) and while the act of summarizing might seem like an easy and obvious undertaking there is a noticeable difference between summarizing and summarizing well. For example, many students, without even realizing it, leave out key information when they summarize because they forget to consider how much their reader already knows about the topic or reading. Be careful to explain fully so readers do not have to guess what you mean. In his textbook, A Brief Guide to Writing from Readings, Stephen Wilhoit suggests that to avoid the pitfalls of unclear or disjointed summaries, they should keep in mind the qualities of a good summary. These qualities include: Neutrality – The writer avoids inserting his or her opinion or interpreting the original text’s content in any way. This requires the writer avoid language that is evaluative, such as: good, bad, effective, ineffective, interesting, boring, etc. Also, keep 1st person (I, we, our, us) out of the summary; instead, summary should be written in grammatical 3rd person (For example, he she, the author, they, etc). Brevity – The summary should not be longer than the original text, but rather highlight the most important information from that text while leaving out unnecessary details and still maintaining accuracy. Independence – The summary should make sense to someone who has not read the text. There should be no confusion about the main content and organization of the original source. This also requires that the summary be accurate—that it not misinterpret any part of the original text. Mastering the craft of summarizing puts students in the position to do well on many assignments in college, not just English essays. In most fields, from the humanities to the sciences, summary is a required task. Being able to summarize lab results accurately and briefly, for example, is critical in a chemistry or engineering class. Summarizing the various theories of sociology or education helps a person apply them to his or her fieldwork. In business, summarizing ideas effectively can be useful in numerous scenarios. The assignment: • Your summary will follow guidelines that integrate both informative and explanatory summary components: Informative summary “simply conveys the author’s main ideas, data, [and] arguments” (Wilhoit 62). Explanatory summary maintains the order of the author’s main points, and also includes the author, title and publication information. • The text: “Who are You and What are You Doing Here?” by Mark Edmundson, pgs. 115-27 The basic structure is as follows: • An Introductory Paragraph including: o The title of the essay, the author’s name, and a brief bio o The topic of the essay—what the text is about o The author’s main idea (essentially your thesis statement) • Body Paragraph(s) including: o Topic Sentences with transitions for each main idea the author addresses o Supporting points following the same order as the article o A concluding sentence that expounds upon, or echoes, the main idea • A Work Cited page that o Includes only the source text Evaluation: A successful summary will include all of the following: • Briefly summarizes the main ideas of the text • Comprehensive, accurate and independent summarization of the text • Objective and neutral restatement of the main ideas • Contain no directly quoted sentences • Clearly introduces the author and title • Body paragraphs that reflect the text’s main ideas • Clear and effective transitions • Mostly free of mechanical and grammatical errors • A correct Work Cited page • Formatted with correct MLA standards • Follows the basic structure of a summary Possible Points: • Peer Response Workshop w/ Rough Draft: 10 points • Final Draft: 80 points • Highlighted revisions and labeling: 5 points • Reflection: 5 points _______________________________________________________________ • Total possible points for the Summary Assignment: 100 Points
