During Weeks 2â€’4 you will complete three collaborative projects with your Book Study Group members. Use a communication tool to connect with group members on these collaborations (e.g., email, Blackboard Collaborate, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Team, and so on).
This weekâ€™s collaborative project is an ethics case study analysis assignment. Before starting this collaborative activity, read Case 1 and Case 3 (Schage, 1997), which deal with deception in social science research. For this case study analysis, you will develop the following components:

Case Study Analysis Components (See Ethics of the Mindâ€”Case Study Analysis Template):
- Determine which case the group will discuss and analyze (Case 1 or Case 3).
- Discuss the case using the practical and theoretical ethics ideas you have studied in this weekâ€™s resources.
- Each group member will locate and review an ethics decision-making model that can be applied to the case. (Resources can be found below and in the project template).
- Discuss the case using the decision-making models that the group members locate.
- Each group member will record their decision-making model on their individual Case Study Analysis template. Complete segments Aâ€’D of the template at the end of the group discussions.
- The group may collaborate on searching for articles but each group member should find one â€œchoiceâ€ empirical research study that can inform the case study analysis. Individual members will list their article on the LR matrix template they submit.
