Case 3.3 in Shaw that was upload below ( read the case and respones)

This should be argumentative essay

base on what my professor want, don’t answer the questions at the end of the reading. The questions can spark your ideas – but what he want is for you to take a position on the case study. What do you think would be the moral thing to do? Do you agree or disagree with what the people did and why? That kind of thing.

These responses will be graded on clarity of argumentation (yes, these responses should be argumentative!) as well as your usage of the moral theories we have learned in the course. It ought to go without saying, but I will say it anyway, that the usual cannons of good academic writing apply in the case of CSRs just as they do for every piece of work you submit to a university level course – so, you are expected to spell words correctly, format your assignments in a rational way, and make use of citations where appropriate.

The most important feature of your grade, however, is your use of the assigned theory. Merely mentioning a moral theory is not enough – so, for example, if you think that raising the minimum wage would be the correct course of action for utilitarian reasons, then you ought to proceed to give an argument why utilitarians in particular should agree with you. That is, you should argue not just that raising the minimum wage would be nice, or make people feel good, but that it would have the best consequences (this line of thinking will make sense when we cover what Utilitarianism is). Moreover you should be specific about what those consequences would be, and why they support your conclusion.
