Writing Intensive Course Information

This course will explore and analyze important ethical issues embedded in clinical practice. Topics will include ethical theories, principles and models for lawful decision making that are most applicable for those who practice as allied health clinicians. Drawing upon clinical literature, the implications of ethical decisions in relation to their legal, economic and cultural dimensions will be studied. Peer review, rough draft, final draft, homework, short-film scenario reflection, discussion board.
Everything is the same except for #3. Required drafts and pages required remain the same. Just the content is changing to focus more on Ethics and not on Health Literature. It has been revised to say: #3: Students will complete a paper on a movie with a health ethics component. This paper also requires research into medical conditions and ethical themes. The student will receive peer and instructor feedback and submit a revised copy of the two assignments. total pages of writing: 4-5 pgs of original.

Writing Intensive Teaching

Peer review
Each paper will go through a four step revision process: 1. Each student will review and select a topic 2. Students will submit an outline/draft and a plan for revision (3 planned changes and rational for changes) 3. Students will complete a peer review or review process with the MU writing center. They will also submit details regarding their paper theme and primary goals for final revision. 4. Students will submit final draft.
 
Due to the nature of the course, many possible interpretations of situations exist. Students are encouraged to explore their own belief system and moral compass. Therefore, the personal views of the students are not graded. The graded portion of the course involves how the students use the core competencies in the course to navigate ethical situations and formulate a response.
The writing is allocated in such a way as to decrease the workload burden of any given point in time.
