English and Ethics: Some Ideas for Teachers of Literature.
Aitken, Johan Lyall
In addition to a preface and an introduction that provide a rationale for the combined study of English and ethics, this booklet presents the following chapters: "English and Ethics--An Easy Coalition,""Model Course in English and Ethics," and "Discussion of English/Ethics Topics: Chart 1" and "Ultimate Life Goals and Literature: Chart 2," which suggest specific literary works to be used for illuminating certain ethical propositions. A conclusion stresses the importance of sound reasoning in literary criticism and in ethical decision making, while an appendix provides two additional charts defining "ultimate life goals and literature" for grades 7 and 8 and for grades 11 and 12.
