Interactive Ethics Education
We offer engaging lessons and materials that teach your students the skills necessary to be strong moral reasoners. Whether it’s a course on the ethics of the filibuster or the plastic straw ban, our lessons introduce students to ethics and engage them on the key moral issues of our time.
Examining Ethics podcast in the classroom
Scholars can be difficult to understand if you’re not one yourself. Examining Ethics is a podcast that translates big ideas from some of the country’s leading ethicists, philosophers and scholars into language we can all understand. We’ve covered everything from the ethics in Dungeons and Dragons to forgiveness to Frankenstein, all in a way that’s designed to appeal to high schoolers, college students and life-long learners.
High school teachers and college professors alike use the podcast in their classroom to help provoke discussion. We’re currently developing discussion questions for each episode. We’ve also got some fun ideas up our sleeve about creating workshops to teach podcasting as a classroom project. Contact Christiane Wisehart (email@example.com) for more information or to provide suggestions for more resources we could provide your classroom.Listen to Examining Ethics
