Engaging with Ethics: Ethical inquiry for teachers

Katoomba NSW 2780, Australia: Social Sciences Press (2000)

Gilbert Burgh
University of Queensland
This book adopts a ‘community of inquiry’ approach to the teaching of professional ethics to pre-service teachers. It is designed to assist students to bridge the gap between ethical theories and their practical experiences as beginning professionals. The first part of the book articulates the framework for the approach taken while the second part provides a series of fictional ethical vignettes set consisting of school teachers and their students in a local school.
