Required Reading
Part 1: Critical Thinking
Before you begin to write up your Case, let’s consider what is meant by “critical thinking.” Critical thinking is one of the five key rubric criteria by which your assignments are graded. Therefore, it is required that you demonstrate evidence of critical thinking in all assignments. For an overview of critical thinking, read the following very carefully:

Kurland, D. (2000). What is critical thinking? Critical Reading. Retrieved fromhttp://www.criticalreading.com/critical_thinking.htm

Next, review the Critical Thinking Skills chart at the following site. This is an excellent visual synopsis of the various components of critical thinking. Note the questions that are associated with each element of critical thinking:

Case Assignment:
In a well-written min 5-page paper, discuss how three virtues apply to the Mattel case.

Keys to the Assignment/Requirement:
1.  Choose three virtues (e.g., justice, fairness, integrity, courage, honor, truthfulness, etc.), and define each using a reputable online dictionary (e.g., http://www.merriam-webster.com/).
2.  Using a section heading for discussion of each of your chosen virtues, discuss how each virtue applies to some ethical issue raised by the Mattel case. For example, you might describe how the virtue you have selected might have been used to more appropriately guide the actions, behaviors, and/or policies of the company (e.g., you may choose to discuss the company’s working conditions, worker safety, company fairness, or Mattel’s attitudes towards the environment).
3.  Be sure to use at least two sources from the library to support your discussion and analysis (choose sources that are not included in the Background section).(See Attached Virtue Ethics Journal)
4.  Follow The Student Guide to Writing a High Quality Academic Paper guide.( see attached)

Background material
Virtue ethics can be traced as far back as Plato and Aristotle. Of course, virtues include such traits as fairness, self-control, and generosity. It is not difficult to understand how such characteristics – or virtues – as honesty and integrity would be relevant in the context of business ethics. In this module, we will use virtue ethics as a lens through which we will evaluate an organization’s business practices.
