Ethics Applied

posted by .

I have to watch a movie of my choice and then write a paper consisting of 4-5 paragraphs about 2 characters and a major moral issue they each face and then identify the moral approach (egoism, religious ethics, and contractarianism) each uses to resolve the issue. I need help starting the paper. If I discuss in detail what the movie is about and the characters it may be longer than 4-5 paragraphs and I am afraid it will sound like a book report. I'm not sure how to write this paper. Please help!

    DON'T start any paper's first draft by writing the introduction! How can you introduce a paper that you haven't written yet?

    Follow the writing process, whether you're writing for science, history, English, or whatever:

    Prewriting: Brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement

    Writing: Write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write the introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.

    Polishing: Revise, concentrating first on the body of the paper, then the intro, then the concl (revision = making sure ideas are logical and sequential and support your thesis); proofread (spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)

    Do you have a thesis yet? Have you done your brainstorming (and maybe research) yet? Have you written an outline?
