Details about tomorrow’s Manifesto Due Date

Tomorrow, Manifestos are due for most students.  In order to receive 100% of the ‘on-time’ submission grade, students will need to submit their work before 2:16.  Those students who choose to submit a Manifesto as late as Monday, 5/21 may do so and forfeit the 20 points awarded for on-time submission of the manifesto.

Students who miss the due date for Manifesto submission [beyond 5/21 or their pre-arranged date] do so at the risk of failing the course.  Students who submit a manifesto  more than one school day later than the last possible due date [either 5/21 or the pre-arranged calendar agreement (agreed to prior to 5/15)] will both forfeit their process points for on-time submission and forfeit 10% of their earned points for each day the work is submitted late.

So… the short version  is that IF you wish to submit your manifesto for 100% points, turn it in tomorrow at the end of class.  If you wish to improve your product and forfeit the daily-work points for on-time submission [20 points], then you may make that choice.  DO NOT fail, however, to miss the Monday 5/21 due date for submission.  Submissions beyond that due date are extremely painful to your overall grade.

My advice is, if your work is not yet up to par, improve it over the weekend.

When you hand in your work, there are three steps necessary:

The Heinz Dilemma

Here are a few resources on Kohlberg’s Moral Stages including the Heinz Dilemma:

Heinz Steals the Drug

In Europe, a woman was near death from a special kind of cancer. There was one drug that the doctors thought might save her. It was a form of radium that a druggist in the same town had recently discovered. The drug was expensive to make, but the druggist was charging ten times what the drug cost him to make. He paid $200 for the radium and charged $2,000 for a small dose of the drug. The sick woman’s husband, Heinz, went to everyone he knew to borrow the money, but he could only get together about $ 1,000 which is half of what it cost. He told the druggist that his wife was dying and asked him to sell it cheaper or let him pay later. But the druggist said: “No, I discovered the drug and I’m going to make money from it.” So Heinz got desperate and broke into the man’s store to steal the drug-for his wife. Should the husband have done that? (Kohlberg, 1963, p. 19)
