1. Settings. Chose a film and make an argument about the significance of its set

1. Settings. Chose a film and make an argument about the significance of its settings. For this topic you
will need to identify the film’s different settings and then analyze their meanings. You may want to focus
on particular settings such as interiors, parties or celebrations, urban settings, and landscapes. How do
different settings frame characters and anchor them in different meanings? How do settings convey
information about class, race, gender, sexuality? Does the constructed world or worlds of the film
comment on the limits and possibilities of our actual world?
2. Narrative. Rowe suggests that we can begin to analyze many film narratives in terms of an initial
equilibrium, then the disruption of that equilibrium, and finally, the establishment of a new equilibrium,
different from the equilibrium at the film’s start. Does your chosen film conform to or depart from that
narrative structure? How might that narrative structure help us understand the significance of the film’s
story? In particular, you may want to focus on the ending. Each film’s ending is relatively open ended.
The film endings suggest possible futures for their characters but their subsequent stories aren’t told and
we don’t definitively know their fates. What is the meaning of such open-ended conclusions?
3. Respectability Politics. Historically, models of respectability have celebrated heterosexual marriage
and reproduction; “normal” gender roles; and respect for and deference to authority. On the one hand, by
identifying with such forms of “respectability,” BIPOC communities have countered forms of racism
based in ideas about their deviancy and immorality. On the other hand, identifying with respectability has
reinforced the very definitions of deviancy and immorality that have been used to depict BIPOC
communities as dangerous and disposable. Choose a film and construct an argument about how it
represents such contradictions. To what extent does the film challenge respectability politics? How do the
filmmakers use the tools discussed by Rowe to represent and comment on “respectability”?
4. Sound. Chose a film and make an argument about its use of sound. According to Rowe, sound can
reinforce the continuity of action and link different scenes. Music, in particular, can establish or enhance
emotion, or help lead an audience to a particular understanding of a scene. While you could focus on all
sorts of sounds, you may want to focus in particular on music. Music can identify characters and attach
particular meanings to them (Rowe cites as an example The Godfather, where different kinds of music
mark differences of class and nationality between different characters). How is sound used in one of the
three films and to what effect? Be sure to draw on not only Rowe but one other assigned reading.
You must cite Alan Rowe’s article (from week 1), and at least one other in-class reading. (W2&W3)

BENCHMARK ATTITUDES AND BELIEFS REFLECTION PAPER ASSIGNMENT
INSTRUCTIONS
OVERVIEW
The Standard A.4.b. of the American Counseling Association’s (ACA) 2014 Code of Ethics
mandates the following regarding personal values:
“Counselors are aware of their own values, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors and avoid imposing
values that are inconsistent with counseling goals. Counselors respect the diversity of clients,
trainees, and research participants” (ACA, 2014, p. 5).
Therefore, it is important that counselors and counselor trainees spend time identifying their own
values, understanding the origin of these values, and honestly owning how personal values may
adversely affect the counselor’s ability to work with certain populations or mental illnesses.
INSTRUCTIONS
Step 1: Read and complete the Attitudes & Beliefs Inventory below (see p. 2). When you are
finished, go back over the inventory and select three questions you had the strongest
reactions to and/or you had the most difficult time answering.
Your paper should be 5-7 pages, (excluding title page, abstract, reference page), written
in APA format, including a title page, abstract, introduction, body, conclusion, and
references. Your paper should be well thought out and demonstrate critical thinking,
self-evaluation, and practical application. Your paper must include at least 5 scholarly
references published within the last 5 years. All sources must be scholarly journal
articles outside of course materials, materials from other classes, and applicable to the
counseling profession. No websites or direct quotes. This assignment should be written
in 1st person.
Step 2: Divide your paper into the three required headings below and address the following
questions within each section:
Reaction
State the 3 questions that evoked the strongest reaction in you, and/or, you found
most difficult to answer. Why? What personal value(s) and/or belief(s) did each
question seem to contradict or seemed to cause some personal incongruence within
you?
Response
When, from whom, and how, did you learn this (these) value(s)/belief(s)?
Action
What personal or professional work do you still need to do around this issue?
COUC 501

Step 3: When you have completed your paper, save it as a Microsoft Word document under your
name and assignment title (Example: Doe_J_Attitudes and Beliefs_Paper). Submit your
paper via the assignment submission link in Canvas and Tevera. If the final paper you
submit contains entire sentences or paragraphs that have a high similarity index to other
sources, it may indicate either unintentional or intentional plagiarism. You may be
contacted by your instructor.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.

2 – 2.5 pages (at least 600 words of text, excluding references), double-spaced. In this paper, I would like you to select a current (or recent) impactful public official–elected, appointed, or career, of either party or no party–and evaluate her or his use of government power in light of Dobel’s (normative) conception of public integrity. In general, how well does she or he demonstrate the balancing required by “the triangle of judgment”? More specifically, how well (or poorly) does she or he display “focal commitments of public integrity” discussed on pp. 20-22 of Public Integrity? (Of course, she or he may realize some commitments better than others, or even realize some well and others not very well at all.) The more specific you can be in your illustrations, the better. Also, given the length of the paper, it may suffice for evaluation of your subject’s integrity to consider fewer than all seven focal commitments (but do discuss at least 4). Given whom you select, some may be more relevant than others. And please cite your sources and make sure all quoted text is placed in quotes. A final (but important point): This paper calls for analysis, which requires some setting out of facts. However, be careful that your focus is analysis, not narrative (critical thinking, not storytelling).

In their book, Called to Care: A Christian Worldview of Nursing, Shelly and Mill

In their book, Called to Care: A Christian Worldview of Nursing, Shelly and Miller discuss what it means to be human and elaborates on the descriiption of who we are and possibly what we see in our patients. Spirituality and Culture are defined as part of who the patient is and are foundations for the decisions they make and can, in part, play a role in the ethical decisions we face as healthcare providers. PART 1: Extrapolate two different concepts, one from chapter 4 and one from chapter 5 or 6. Discuss them as they apply to the patient and how it affects personal healthcare decisions. PART 2: Apply this discussion to ONE of the patient scenarios listed down below: What are your thoughts? Christian struggles? How can Culture and Spirituality play a role in the ethical decisions we face with any of these scenarios. What Christian ethics and medical ethics are in conflict here?
Patient Scenario #3: A 34-year-old female, “Sally,” comes to the homeless clinic you volunteer for. She keeps to herself and doesn’t exchange pleasantries with others except for a few short words. She has type 2 diabetes, which is not very well controlled (last A1C was 8.5% approximately six months ago). She is overweight, and appears partially unkempt. She reports an address as a close relative that she lives with, but reports she is out on her own most of the time (homeless), doing what she can to get by. She walks to her appointments and her diet is irregular. Must have Bible quotes.
She is here today for follow up and is requesting medication refills for raltegravir and maraviroc, which you recognize as HIV medications. Her history reveals she has been HIV + for the past 3 years. She has a history of drug use and remains sexually active, “doing what she needs to do” in order to obtain drugs or drug money. People have tried to help her in the past with finding jobs or places to stay, but she does not maintain it very long. When others have tried to talk to her about using protection, she indicates she is not interested and becomes very belligerent about it. You notice her befriending a new visitor to the clinic who is another patient, “Bob”. Bob is someone who visits the clinic in need of assistance, but he sees another provider. Your concern is for both Sally and Bob and the ability to be involved in a health relationship and what Sally may be intending (Unprotected intercourse with Bob). (Guidance: Students who have chosen this scenario in the past have discussed the legal components of this scenario. These will also play a part, but I would like for us to focus on the ethical issues related to this course if we can).

Cultural humility is a key feature of effective and ethical practice. To fully respond to another’s culture, we have to remember that we view it through our own cultural lens. Also, specific beliefs and practices of two cultures can conflict. This is often the case with the field of Applied Behavior Analysis and anti-ABA autistics and advocates. Part of adopting a culturally humble approach involves understanding your own cultural practices and listening and learning from cultures other than your own.
In this assignment, you will be required to:
Understand specific cultural practices of behavior analysts.
Listen and learn about the perspectives and cultural practices of anti-ABA autistics and advocates.
Approach a culture different than you own in a non-judgmental and non-critical manner.
This assignment is intended to help you:
Understand culture from a behavioral perspective.
Consider the importance of incorporating culture in a client’s/participant’s context through a culturally humble approach.
Identify the skills needed to adopt a culturally humble approach and strategies in which we can develop those skills.
In your assignment, include the following:
Describe culture from a behavioral perspective.
Discuss the importance of incorporating culture as a part of a client’s/participant’s context in applied practice and research.
Describe cultural humility and discuss the potential benefits of adopting culturally humble approaches to applied practice and research.
Discuss specific skills needed to adopt culturally humble approaches and specific ways we can develop and maintain those skills.
Provide at least two supporting examples of a culturally humble approach in action within the context of two groups of people in frequent conflict: (1) behavior analyst researchers and practitioners and (2) anti-ABA autistics and advocates

You will write on the issue of abortion and our ethical theories. This is more than an opinion piece, but a systematic exploration of the different ethical theories and how they would deal with the argument. This will take critical thinking on your part by reading the textbook and watching the videos and synthesizing the information to explain the arguments. Googling will not help.
– Explain abortion according to all three different theories: Utilitarianism, Kantian deontology, and Natural Law.
– Answer these questions for each
Is abortion permissible under this theory? Why or why not?
Explain the major motivation for each theory’s position
Explain an objection given in the book or videos for the course (this will likely take putting information together from the different videos)
What position to you agree with most and why?
You may “recycle” arguments that you have already used as your arguments (and even your responses) if you like.
This paper must be 800-1000 words. Your sources should be the book and videos. No outside sources are needed.
Textbook: Textbook Hinman, Lawrence, Contemporary Moral Issues, Diversity and Consensus, Fourth Edition
All papers should use 1” margins, 12-point font, and be double spaced. A specific referencing method (MLA) is required; however, when quoting or paraphrasing, ensure that your reader will be able to locate the source in question.

Approximately 2.5 pages (at least 600 words of text, excluding references), double spaced.
Topic: Drawing from one or more recent periodical articles, select one or more cases of an action or a practice–done by an individual, a group, or an institution–that is legal but, in your opinion, unjust. (Note that this entails you yourself making a moral judgment–rather than an observation about what is or is not “accepted.”) Then, construct arguments applying (as relevant) the traditional concepts of justice expounded by Sandel (in his Chapter 1) in explaining why the behavior in question is unjust–and so, should be condemned or, possibly even prohibited by law. Thus, what I’m asking for here are principled reasons supporting your moral judgment that the behavior is unjust, reasons that employ the concepts of justice discussed by Sandel (and illustrated in his examples). Please note: I’m looking for analysis and arguments–for your giving moral reasons for a position. I’m not looking for narrative–for a detailed presentation of facts. Also, be sure to cite your sources and place any quoted text in quotation marks. Also, it should be free of spelling and grammatical errors, so please proofread and, if need be, use spell- and grammar-checks. Finally, remember that this is an exercise in critical thinking applied to ethical issues. What matters for me is not whether I agree with your opinions but rather that you adduce serious, thoughtful arguments for your judgments.
