I. Introduction to the topic.
• State the significance of the issue – why is this worth worrying about?
• State the thesis you will be defending – summarize your moral judgment concerning the issue.
• State which moral theory you will be using to analyze the issue.
• Provide a one-sentence summary of the argument you will use to defend the thesis.

II. Brief re-cap of your moral framework.
• State which moral theory you will be using.
• Explain how the decision rule works.
• Mention your criterion for moral standing, and your criteria for moral significance.
• Mention your position on rights and particularism.

III. The case for the thesis.
• Describe the moral question thoroughly, defining all technical terms.
• Create three different scenarios to illustrate various ways that judgments might differ.
• For each scenario, spell out your argument by applying the decision rules to the case, using language appropriate to your theory.
• Be sure to defend all claims that might be doubted by a critic.

IV. The case for the opposition.
• Working within your moral theory, describe at least one alternate position that might be taken using that theory, offering a reasonable argument for that position. Do this for each scenario.
• Explain why the argument made by the opposition fails.
