The Prindle Post as a classroom tool
The Prindle Post is the Prindle Institute’s online source for pieces that examine and explain the ethical dimensions of current events and culture. Many of the articles have discussion questions tailored for use in the classroom.
We also offer a PDF workbook with activities and discussion questions for a selection of articles on a certain theme.

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 reparations and climate change to using games to teach ethics to the ethics of trust in technology, 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. Find the show at the link provided, or on most podcatchers.Listen to Examining Ethics
