Enhancing Moral and Ethical Judgment through the Use of Case Histories: An Ethics Course for Pre-Service Teachers
Mc Danel de García, Mary Anne
GIST Education and Learning Research Journal, n7 p93-114 Nov 2013
This article refers to an action research project involving pre-service teachers. The purpose of this study was to determine if specific learning outcomes could be successfully employed as objectives for an ethics course for preservice teacher preparation. Real life case histories were used by students to identify and reflect upon moral and ethical issues. Data was collected through questionnaires, interviews, written reflection, and teachers' observations. Findings revealed that the set objectives were attainable and apparently achieved by all of the participants. The use of case histories and a color rubric facilitated the development of the students' moral awareness, reflection and motivation.
