The Prindle Institute and The Castle together reach hundreds of local students a year with lessons incorporating moral reasoning and ethical thought.
High School Ethics Education Workshops
Moral reasoning is key to a well-rounded high school education. Our workshops teach students to develop their skills in ethical decision-making using a case-study approach. Students will walk away with tools that they can use to reason and talk through complicated moral dilemmas. Each session will introduce students to six ethical frameworks. Using a combination of small-group discussion and personal reflection, students will learn how to better understand not only some of the major ideas in the field of ethics, but also their own values and the values of their classmates.Learn more
Philosophy at the Virtual Art Museum
Philosophy at the Virtual Art Museum fosters philosophical discussions using works of art from genres like landscape or portraiture and styles of art like abstraction. The questions for each work of art will spark discussion on issues in a variety of different philosophical areas, such as the philosophy of mind and ethics as well as the philosophy of art. Each artwork lesson can be easily shared and printed for classroom use.Explore
Resources for Educators
High School Ethics Bowl
Sharing stories, understanding values
The world children and adolescents face today is full of divisiveness and moral uncertainty. We believe that by equipping students with the skills to talk about their own values, civilly engage in dialogue with their peers and recognize moral
issues when they arise, we can empower young people to live examined, fulfilled lives. Our K-12 programming harnesses the power of narrative to create impactful content that resonates with students and educators.
Resources for Educators
The Prindle Institute for Ethics wants to serve educators with our content and educational resources. Whether you’re a Putnam County
fifth grade teacher or a professor in California, we’ve got the resources you need to engage your students with ethics.
We love ethics bowl
The Prindle Institute loves ethics bowl so much we host two huge high school competitions every year! We think ethics bowl is a fantastic teaching tool because unlike typical debate competitions, the judging
criterion focuses more on key elements of constructing a well-reasoned argument in a civil manner. We’re the home of the annual Indiana High School Ethics Bowl competition and each summer, we also host an invitational for the nation’s top high school ethics bowl teams.
The Prindle Post in the classroom
The Prindle Post is the Prindle Institute’s online source for pieces that examine and explain the ethical dimensions of current events and culture. The articles are written for a general audience that includes high schoolers, college students and life-long learners. If you are an educator interested in incorporating The Prindle Post in your classroom, you can request free copies of The Prindle Post print edition for use in your classroom by contacting Christiane Wisehart (email@example.com).
Each print edition comes with a free set of classroom activities and questions for each article.
Young children face an increasingly divisive and divided world, where they often lack the models and tools they need for respectful disagreement and positive dialogue. Express C.A.M.P. (Character, Attitude, Morals, Perspective) is a week-long summer camp led by local Putnam County K-5 educators and college-aged counselors that’s designed to teach first- through fifth-grade children how to actively engage with others who might have different views, while also encouraging them to express and develop their own values.
