I did a reading analysis on Singer and down below is a brief response to his essay, which I would like to include in my essay assignment.

I agree to a certain extent; I feel like you can buy yourself nice things, eat out sometimes and go on a vacation, and give back by making a small donation to a charity for a good cause. I’m not saying break your pockets or bank accounts either.

” Therefore, for a family bringing in 50,000, a year donation helps the world’s poor should be a close as possible $20,000.” I think that is absurd, I fall into that bracket, and I cannot see myself donating that much. No one should be obligated to donate, but if you have the extra money, contribute. Why not? Every little bit helps in some way.

ESSAY 2: Select a series of articles on the same issue or event from three different publicationsone classified as right, one classified as left, and one classified as center/least biased. Conduct a thorough analysis of bias in the articles by closely evaluating the language choices, quality and credibility of other sources cited, placement of key ideas within the text, omissions of key ideas or potential contradictions, and so on. To be clear, students should not share their opinions on the content itself (whether you support or oppose gun control, for instance–again, this is not an issue/debate essay); students are solely analyzing the bias represented in the content. The goal of the essay is to demonstrate a sophisticated depth of understanding regarding inherent bias in news publications. In assessing this essay, I will be looking at the quality of writing (as highlighted in the rubric) and also the depth of critical thought and analysis represented in your discussion. You should plan to cite the source you are analyzing and also at least three other relevant, scholarly sources. (Specifics: Use MLA Style or APA Style, as long as you’re consistent. Write roughly 5-7 pages plus the references).

Also, here is the Essay 2 Rubric for you:

Does the essay provide factual evidence and clear reasoning to support the thesis? Does the essay build the student writers credibility by considering opposing viewpoints fairly?

Analysis                              20 points

3. Research Essay Proposal
Weighting: This is a pass/fail portion of your Research Essay Assignment, but it is not optional. You will not be able to proceed with the essay until you have received a pass on this portion of the assignment.

Complete your Research Essay Proposal around the time you are doing Unit 5 (week 10 of the Suggested Study Schedule). You should be nearing completion of the essay around the time you are working on Unit 8 (weeks 1617), and submitting it in during Unit 9 (weeks 1819).

After you have chosen a topic, you must review your choice with your tutor. Submit your choice with:

o an introductory thesis statement;
o a short outline (200 words), and a bibliography which includes at least five scholarly sources (books from recognized university or academic presses, or articles from peer-reviewed journals).
o a short (one or two sentence) statement for each of your bibliographic entries, indicating why you think this would be an appropriate source for your topic.
There are three main approaches that you can take when you are formulating your topic. The first approach is to choose a particular problem or issue in the global economy (for example, the role of the World Bank, or debt and developing nations), and to explain its historical evolution, its relation to the nation-state system, and (if it is a problem) the possibilities of its resolution.

The second approach is to study an aspect of a specific national political economy that illustrates issues of salience for the study of international political economy as a whole. The essay will outline the historical developments of an issue at hand (for example, Mexico before and after the meltdown, or capitalist development in Russia or China), paying special attention to relations between domestic and international social forces and the state that have combined to create the contemporary situation. If that situation is perceived to be problematic, the essay will propose possible alternatives or solutions.

The third approach is to study a particular aspect of globalization, outlining and examining the debates for and against the most visible expressions of globalization (e.g., the North American Free Trade Agreement, the Free Trade Area of the Americas, the free market speculation in currencies, the World Trade Organization). The essay would involve analyzing the pros and cons of each position and determining whether reforms (or more radical measures) are required to address prevailing concerns.

If you have some other topic you would like to tackle, you may do so after consulting with the tutor.

A research essay requires extra reading outside of the course materials. This entails extensive use of the library and any other source of primary and secondary documents and material. The bibliography indicates sources beyond those in the course, but you should also be familiar with information-gathering techniques in the Athabasca University Library and other university and public libraries. If you do not have access to libraries in your area, the Athabasca University Library staff will undertake searches for you. See the section titled Library Services in the Student Manual.
