Professional Ethics Education for Future Teachers: A Narrative Review of the Scholarly Writings
Maxwell, Bruce; Schwimmer, Marina
Journal of Moral Education, v45 n3 p354-371 2016
This article provides a narrative review of the scholarly writings on professional ethics education for future teachers. Against the background of a widespread belief among scholars working in this area that longstanding and sustained research and reflection on the ethics of teaching have had little impact on the teacher education curriculum, the article takes stock of the field by synthesizing viewpoints on key aspects of teaching ethics to teacher candidates--the role ethics plays in teacher education, the primary objectives of ethics education for teachers, recommended teaching and learning strategies, and challenges to introducing ethics curriculum--and maps out how opinions on these matters have evolved over the three decades since the initial publication of Strike and Soltis' seminal book, "The Ethics of Teaching." In light of the review's results, the article identifies critical deficits in this literature and proposes a set of recommendations for future inquiry.
