READ THIS: https://www.acm.org/code-of-ethics (Links to an external site.)
Next, go to this forum: http://catless.ncl.ac.uk/risks/ (Links to an external site.)
Look through the RISKS forum and find three issues that are of interest to you. One from volumes 1-10, one from volumes 11-20, and one from volumes 21+.
For each entry that you have selected, write a one paragraph summary of the situation. Next, write three more paragraphs, each of which refers to a specific ACM code of ethics item. Each of these paragraphs will explore whether the actions of the people in the RISKS formum item violated the ethics rule. (It is also acceptable to explain why the people were acting in accordance with the ethics principle.) Thus, there will therefore be four paragraphs per RISK item.
For example, you might read: Word Perfect Software Upgrade Crashes Utah Phone System (Volume 10 Issue 01 Links to an external site.item #2) . You would start by writing a one-paragraph summary of the RISKS forum item. Then you would write three paragraphs, picking (for example) elements 2.4, 3.1 and 3.3 from the ACM code of ethics, and discuss whether or not (from what you can find out and/or surmise) the situation in the item was a violation of that element. Your submission will therefore be 12 paragraphs as follows, all in one submission to TurnItIn:
ITEM 1: 4 paragraphs. Description of a RISKS forum element from volumes 1-10 (one paragraph). Three of the following: Choosing a specific item from the ACM Ethics, write a paragraph describing why or why not the people in the article were acting ethically with respect to the ethics item that you selected.
ITEM 2: 4 paragraphs. Description of a RISKS forum element from volumes 11-20 (one paragraph). Three of the following: Choosing a specific item from the ACM Ethics, write a paragraph describing why or why not the people in the article were acting ethically with respect to the ethics item that you selected.
ITEM 3: 4 paragraphs. Description of a RISKS forum element from volumes 21 onward (one paragraph). Three of the following: Choosing a specific item from the ACM Ethics, write a paragraph describing why or why not the people in the article were acting ethically with respect to the ethics item that you selected.
This is worth 75 points. You are expected to do your due diligence to make your essay a good one. More points will be awarded if you do some outside research or if you incorporate ethical ideas from non-ACM sources as well in support of the ideas in your essay. This could be a religious tradition, a favorite philosopher, etc. Here are good notes on what makes a good paragraph: http://faculty.washington.edu/ezent/impd.htm (Links to an external site.)
I expect each paragraph to be 5 or more thoughtful, complete sentences, worthy of college-level writing. You are being graded on writing mechanics and thoughtfulness of your content.
