Note:  No more than 6 people per topic

Groups will decide how to narrow these down. You need not discuss all items listed here. It's better to cover a few topic very well than try to do everything that's ever been said about given topic.

Hints for March 26th Meeting:

1)     Try to get as much done today as possible! Be sure to do the following:

2)     Exchange email/phone numbers for your group

 3)     Distribute tasks—Divide up work within the group—You can then exchange notes/research via email or in class 

4)     Discuss format of your presentation—how would you like to run your group presentation (see ideas above and feel free to come up with your own!)

 5)     Possible viewpoints that could be taken on your chosen topic

 6)     Try to make your presentation as specific as possible to appeal to your group members, or if you are going to be more general be sure you make your tasks manageable

 7)     Remember you don’t have to say everything that could possibly be said on a topic, narrow it down where you can

 8)     Where do the ethical theories we’ve discussed fit into your topic?

9)    Which articles from class will you use in your presentation?

 10) Where will you look for other resources (check out our class website, internet, ask the reference librarian at Campbell for assistance)?
