Evidence Skill-Building

Please type in answers to the questions in this assignment, then upload the assignment as a .doc, .docx, or .pdf to the correct dropbox in Blackboard (make sure it is saved as one of those file types, with the file extension in the filename since Blackboard won’t read it otherwise). I will apply the rubric (available at the end of the document, and on Blackboard) to your answers for each question. Remember that the grades in this class are binary: you have to have satisfactory scores in all areas to receive credit. If you have any unsatisfactory scores, you may resubmit up to twice in the two weeks after the initial assignment due date of September 25.

The goal of this assignment is to build your skills at finding evidence within a text to support a given thesis. To that end, I have provided a series of potential theses about All Systems Red. Please use your text to find one (1) piece evidence that you believe supports the thesis, and say why you think it supports the thesis. That evidence can be anything from the text: quotes and summary are equally fine. Please use at least one quote and at least one summary from the text, so that I may assess your skill at each. Formal citation is not required, but do please remember to tell me where in the book the material comes from (a page, a page range, a chapter, some kind of identifier). Please check the rubric for more detail on what I am asking you to do.

Despite their reluctance to admit it, Murderbot is as human as everyone else, and so deserves to be free from the corporation’s control.
Murderbot is not a human, but is also not an object, and the society in the book would benefit from finding third category in order to properly integrate Murderbot and other SecUnits into its culture.
Murderbot’s concern for human life is pre-programmed, and not natural, so we should not consider Murderbot and the other SecUnits human because they do not relate to people the same way others do.
The humans in the story should respect Murderbot’s wishes and not treat them as human, because doing so makes Murderbot uncomfortable.
Murderbot is no longer a SecUnit, but something more, and so we cannot apply the rules that apply to SecUnits to Murderbot.
Because hacking Murderbot’s governor module made them more human, we ought to hack the governor modules of all the other SecUnits too.
