Unit 8: Review 1.3.1 “The Hurricane Katrina Case” on page 7. Put yourself in the Guardsman’s shoes. Answer the general question, “what would you do and why”? Would your force evacuation for those who do not want to go, or would you respect their autonomy? Apply any information from your last seven assignments and write a four page (double spaced) paper on your choice while describing the ethics of this case. You may use any information that you previously used in your assignments to create this paper. The goal of this assignment is to assess total knowledge of course material.
This is the big 200 point project (40% of the class grade). It is a 4 page (92 line minimum) paper that allows you to incorporate a lot of the material from the class to help you answer the question about Katrina. The main question that must be answered is this: IF you were a National Guardsman during Katrina, would you use force to remove the people who did not want to leave their homes, or would you respect their autonomy and let them stay? You need to construct an argument that addresses that basic question.
Please remember that even though you may choose to work on the papers ahead of time, you cannot post your papers until the appropriate week. Also, some of these topics will need clarification and special instruction which I have provided above, and will remind you of on the Discussion Board during the relevant week.
