Integration of Ethics with American Pedagogy
Pittella, Rosanna
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v11 n1 p209-220 2006
The United States has established itself, for better or worse, as the single most powerful country in the world. The American school system was not designed to familiarize its students with the language and concepts of ethics they will need as heirs and future leaders of a nation with ever increasing global reach and influence. This article proposes a program for the integration of ethics consciousness and vocabulary with standard American pedagogy. Practical examples of techniques and materials are proposed for utilization by intentional teachers of students from pre-K through college level.
