Essay Assignment Instructions:It’s Not My Fault: Global Warming and Individual Moral Obligations By Walter Sinnott-ArmstrongBe sure to read all three parts of the instructions carefully. Part 1: The Assignment; Part 2: Mechanics of Essay Submission and Penalties; Part 3: Academic Integrity.PART 1: THE ASSIGNMENTRead the article in your textbook by Walter Sinnott-Armstrong, “It’s Not My Fault: Global Warming and Individual Moral Obligations.”Your assignment is to answer this question:Sinnott-Armstrong argues that he (or any other person similarly situated) does not have a moral obligation to refrain from taking a Sunday drive in a gas-guzzling car just for fun. Do you agree? Why or why not?You will explain your reasons for your judgment, using relevant moral theories and principles that we’ve learned in this course.You will be evaluated not on what you say, but rather according to how well you thoroughly develop your argument, and how well you demonstrate understanding of Sinott-Armstrong’s argument.You should write in the first person.Your essay should be in the range of 1,000-1,250 words.Advice for writing your essay:Do not paste any part of these instructions into your document.Study the document I’ve posted on our course site, “How to Write a Short Moral Argument.” You can find it wherever you found these instructions.
Refrain from merely giving your opinion, rather than giving an argument. You can’t just merely say what you believe or what you feel. (Well, you could, but you won’t like your grade.) You must give reasons for your beliefs. Those reasons should be in the form of general moral theories, and/or empirical evidence (that come from credible sources), all of which should support your judgment.Do not quote or paraphrase excessively. I want to hear your argument in your voice. I already know what all the ‘authorities’ in moral philosophy and applied ethics think. I want to know what you think. (Remember, though, when you do quote or paraphrase, you must cite the source. All ideas from any source other than your own mind must be cited.)PART 2: MECHANICS OF ESSAY SUBMISSION AND PENALTIESa. Do not paste any part of these instructions into your document. b. Name your document: YOURLASTNAME_Essay#2.docxc. You may also convert to .pdf, but no .pages. Do not scan papers to make PDFs; instead use the ‘save as’ function or the ‘print as PDF’ function. If your computer won’t do it, the UA computers will.d. Formatting: Double spaced, Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, default margins.
CITATIONS: For citations, use Chicago style. Simply “insert a footnote” behind the text you are citing. A ‘footer’ box will open at the bottom of the page and the number of the footnote will appear. (An example of a footnote is on page 1 of this document.) Word keeps track and will automatically change the numbering as you continue to add citations. When the footer opens, you type the citation information according to Chicago style, which you can find here:http://chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.htmlUse the “Notes and Bibliography” system, but do not include a bibliography. Just insert footnotes.Consult a librarian if you have further questions about Chicago citation style.
LATE PENALTIES:If you miss the deadline for submitting the essay, you should still submit it to the D2L Dropbox, but penalties will be applied as noted below.Be advised that D2L calculates according to Arizona time, and it sometimes takes a minute to upload.*Any fraction less than 1 day late = 3 point deduction. * 1 day late= 4 point deduction* 2 days late= 5 point deduction* 3 days late= 8 point deduction* 4 days late= 11 point deduction* 5 days late= 13 point deduction* 6 days late= 15 point deduction* 7 days late=17 point deduction* 8-14 days: Half credit (half of score after grading)Anything over 14 days late will be assessed a penalty according to my discretion, based on your reason for being so late.The exact due date and time is noted in the assignment folder in the Dropbox. Be sure that you are observing ARIZONA TIME.Other penalties (because these mistakes are a real pain for us when we’re grading):Uploading your document to the wrong folder=3 point deductionPasting any part of the instructions into your document=5 point deductionUploading a .pages or other unreadable format=same point deduction scheme for lateness will apply until the correct document is uploaded.Submitting the wrong document or a partial document= same point deduction scheme for lateness will apply until the correct document is uploaded.You must use a .doc, or .docx, or pdf file extension. Do not use .pages. Do not scan papers to make PDFs; instead use the ‘save as’ function or the ‘print as PDF’ function.Here are the instructions for using the D2L Dropbox:http://help.d2l.arizona.edu/student/submitting-assignmentsPART 3: ACADEMIC INTEGRITY:Please be reminded that you have agreed to a Pledge of Academic Integrity, which includes but is not limited to the following rules:You attest that you have read about “Avoiding Plagiarism” and have taken the plagiarism tutorial–both at the UA Library website: http://www.library.arizona.edu/help/tutorials/plagiarism

Turnitin will capture this data and include it in the report.You are not allowed to collaborate with other students on writing the essay. Turnitin will capture this data and include it in the report.If two students in this course turn in similar work, both will be prosecuted regardless of who turned in their work first. Turnitin will capture this data and include it in the report.A 15% or higher match in Turnitin typically means that the student knowingly used illegitimate sources Therefore, in the case of a ≥15% match that I determine to be illegitimate, the following penalties may apply:1. Zero for the assignment.:2) Prosecution for a violation of Academic Integrity with the UA Dean of Students, which may result in a sanction including, but not limited to, failure from the course and a permanent notation on transcripts.It is also a violation of academic integrity to share your work with anyone who takes this course in the future. Your work for this course must remain protected and in your possession, and if your essay, or any part of it, is used by a student in a future term of this course, you will be prosecuted as well as the person who used it.You cannot use your own work from other classes—even a small part—without citation or permission from me. This is a violation of academic integrity. See ‘prohibited conduct’, item #2:http://deanofstudents.arizona.edu/policies-and-codes/code-academic-integrityIn this, and all other, assignments for this class, I require that your work be wholly original and not derived from work done in other classes.
