Tough Choices for Teachers: Ethical Challenges in Today's Schools and Classrooms
Infantino, Robert; Wilke, Rebecca
Rowman & Littlefield Education
From lesson-planning to instructional practice to classroom management, teachers must make choices constantly and consistently. Sometimes these decisions are easy, but there are some decisions that are very difficult. Such delicate decisions often arise in the world of education and may be detrimental to one's career. Thoughtful decision-making should be part of every educator's daily experience. In this book, the authors help student teachers, new teachers, and experienced teachers think more deeply about ethical concerns. The case studies included by the authors involve ethical dilemmas dealing with honesty, integrity, and proper professional behavior. Thinking through these scenarios based in actual situations, educators are trained in ethical decision-making processes and necessary skills for dealing with problems that arise in K-2 schooling.
