JMC 60003 Ethics in Communication - 3 Hours

This course is designed to help teachers provide lenses for students through which they can see dilemmas and ways to solve them. In short, by studying ethical approaches, theories and principles, teachers can help high school students handle choices so they do the right thing. Ethics is a process of decision-making that involves competing values, all of which are right. The course gives teachers background and strategies, and enables then to design ethics lessons to help students learn to make those decisions that will shape how they – and those they reach – continue society's democratic mission.
