Empathy, Ethics, and Writing Instruction
Pelttari, Carole
CEA Forum, v36 n1 Win-Spr 2007
Empathy and ethics can and must co-exist in regard to writing instruction in order to respect the differences among us. Empathetic ethics in the writing classroom necessitate acceptance of each individual along with the recognition and acknowledgment of conflicting viewpoints such as the underlying beliefs L. M. Toner labels "deontological," "virtue," and "consequentialist." This paper discusses L. M. Toner's three ethical views, and describes how L. M. Toner's dissertation has been a helpful resource for the author while teaching academic English in college classrooms.
