They should, as the name might have suggested, be responses to the assigned case studies. Your response must address the case directly – it should not just be a discussion of some issues that are in the neighborhood, but should assess the situation or actions of the people in the case. You should not answer the discussion questions found at the end of the case in the textbook; they can be a fine place to help you get going, but what I want you to do is to write your own assessment of the case.
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. Each CSR will use a different moral theory as outlined below. 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.
