This assignment prepares you for the final Microsoft PowerPoint assignment in M5: Assignment 1. Throughout this course, you have learned to apply a variety of critical thinking techniques to explore and assess contemporary issues.

Often, you may get the best results using a multistep process that provides adequate time to think, write, research, and rewrite. For this assignment, you will review the article by Peter Singer titled “America’s Shame,” which you will also use in M5: Assignment 1.

Using the Argosy University online library resources, review the article by Peter Singer.

  • Identify and critically analyze the roots of these impressions, i.e., emotional, value based, or fact based. Record these as part of your journal notes. Do note you will use these points for M5: Assignment 1.
  • Support your statements with examples and appropriate scholarly references.
