Ethics in America II: A Video Series for Middle School, High School, and Adult Learners
Annenberg Media
New, and yet familiar, hypothetical cases are debated and agonized over by eminent leaders from government, business, science and academia. "Ethics in America II" follows its predecessor by exploring gripping ethical dilemmas using the time-honored Socratic Dialogue format. The programs can be used with a discussion guide to help teachers engage their students in the process of ethical reasoning and acquaint them with its traditions through historical essays and other writings. A Web site with background on the programs and issues is coordinated with the series. This video series contains the following individual programs: (1) Three Farewells: Medicine & the End of Life; (2) War Stories: National Security & the News; (3) My Brother's Keeper; (4) Choosing Justice: Elections and Judicial Independence; (5) A Better Brain: The Ethics of Neuro-Enhancement; and (6) Risk, Reward, Responsibility: Ethics in Business. [This video series was published by Annenberg Media and was produced by Fred Friendly Seminars. The series includes: 6 one-hour video programs; a downloadable discussion guide and Ethics reader; and an accompanying Web site.]
