12 points STASIS (TO STOP) THEORY: for intro: start with a sad story about the animal….maybe use a news account.
|An sit (is it happening?)||Quid sit (define what is exactly happening? What do you name it?)||Quale sit (what is its quality? How good/bad is it?)|
|1. Problem||The Liger/koalas/youtube: Is there a problem happening with the Liger. It’s disappearing….(your sources would prove it’s disappearing; to what extent are they disappearing….||They are disappearing.
They should be classified as endangered: orange. (debate endangered; yellow) :find a source that identifies the definition of ‘endangered’
|How bad is red endangerment for the species in particular. (sources would show how bad the current state is and how to get out of it)|
|2. Blame||Is there someone or something to blame? Highly specific (please for this assignment don’t blame global warming and environment)||What are you blaming it or them for? Specify exactly. If it’s business, name the business etc.||What bad is the crime? Is it worthy of warning, fine, imprisonment?|
|3. Cure||Is there a cure? Is there someone are something that can fix the problem?||What exactly must be done, and what exactly will be fixed? How would you know? You must see research on how similar things were done for other species?||How beneficial is the solution/the fix. To what extent will the problem be cured? (compare a project done with the sea-rat and use that to predict the solution for the liger.|
|4. Cost||Is there a cost? Think of cost in terms of $$$ and time, and “opportunity” (find a real budget, put in real amounts and a budget column)||What exactly is the cost? What is the cost of doing nothing…(don’t be too sweeping; “if we do nothing all the ligers will die”)||How worthwhile or valuable will it be?|
Conclusion 1: really make a step by step budget (be specific)
