Well, we have all picked our chosen field of study by this point, so from here on out, I want you to think in those terms as you respond to the questions and the readings.My field of study: Elementary school teacher (bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (EC-6 generalist))
So let’s start our discussion with Chapter 4. How does your text define “ethics?” Do you want to add anything to that definition? How do ethics differ from morals?
What are the differences between personal, social, and conservation ethics? Is there overlap? Which of these might be important in your own field of study? My field of study: Elementary school teacher (bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (EC-6 generalist))
In our technological age, many ethical issues arise due to the use of the Internet. What does the text say about cyberbullying and harassment? What are some ways to prevent and stop harassment?
What ethical situations might exist in your chosen field of study that would require writing on your part? When writing for these situations, what would you have to consider? What voice would you use?
Speaking of your chosen field of study—let’s also look at Chapter 11! What did you learn from Ch. 11?
What do you think of the info-graphic above? Any surprises?
Finally—let’s look at our two case studies this week. The case studies are always at the end of each chapter. One of the case study is at the end of chapter 4 and the other case study will be at the end of the chapter 11. How would you respond? What other issues should be considered? How can you use your writing skills to resolve similar issues in your own field?
