Deconstructing the Documentary Peer Discussion (Blackboard)

Deconstructing the Documentary Peer Discussion (Blackboard). Documentaries have long been a source of educational entertainment. However, often there is no connection to the literature spanning the academic field. In this activity, your task is to draw connections between the assigned readings and documentary films. Specifically, you will assess the academic worthiness of the documentary by specifically highlighting segments within the film. You will then explain how the documentary connects to our material.

I evaluate your participation by looking at your overall analysis. I am assessing your ability to analyze and critique the documentary. Do not merely summarize the documentary. I should be able to clearly see the analysis of the documentary through an academic lens. If you only summarize the documentary, you have not completed the activity correctly. You need to share with the class if the documentary is accurate, elaborate on the issues presented, and set the documentary to

Your reply must be 500600 words. You will be penalized for falling short or exceeding the word count. Any quotes or information used from sources other than yourself (including your classmates thread) must be cited using footnotes in current Turabian format and will not count towards the total word count.

Within this thread, I will discuss both the Social Contract Theory and the Revelational Christian Ethic. The goal is to define both terms and go in-depth about what is considered the good in each of these. The point I want to pursue, and describe is both the key differences and similarities.  I will close my thoughts up with what I feel is the strongest ethical theory.

During the mid-18th Century, English colonists appealed to the metropole for redress of various grievances. In this essay, I want you to consider the ethics and civics of the elite members of colonial society seeking change (later known to us as the Patriots). Who were these Patriots? What methods did they use to further their goals through civic engagement? What ethical considerations did they take into account in seeking redress of their grievances? How did they fail in the creation of the first American government under the Articles of Confederation? Did the second government under the Constitution address their grievances or did they simply remove the imperial government and placed themselves in that position? Note 1: Successful responses will consider a broad range of evidence in support of arguments. Take a few moments to consider how you would respond by making a list of both "ethics" and "civics" related to the colonists and their grievances. Be sure to have a mixture of big/br
