Ethics and College Student Life: A Case Study Approach
A core text for courses in Freshman Orientation, College Ethics and Critical Thinking; a supplementary text for courses in Introduction to Ethics, and Expository Writing.
Using engaging case studies of ethical dilemmas commonly facing college students, this text gives students hands-on opportunities to apply critical thinking and a problem-solving approach to areas of life that matter to them. Topics covered include relationships, cheating, drinking, privacy, diversity, computer issues, sex, college sports, abuse, responsibility, and plagiarism. The text shows how five important ethical principles can be used to think through morally complex situations and settle disputes. It teaches reasoning and dialoguing skills that students can use productively in every every area of their college experience, and addresses topics that are essential to building personal character, healthy college communities, and a strong society.
Rewritten and reorganized Introduction and case discussions make this edition appropriate for less sophisticated students as well as honors students.
Can be used in many different ways to give students hands-on opportunities for ethical problem-solving.
Covers all important topics, not just “safe” ones.
Brings thought-provoking ethical issues to the surface. Instructors can choose case studies relating to a particular theme or topic, cover one or two cases in each of the major issue areas, or work through the complete range available in the book, as time or their needs dictate.
Encourages students to think for themselves as they follow the discussion and stimulates further dialogue between students, instructors, and peers–both inside and outside the classroom.
Helps students consider other people's perspective.
Encourages further dialogue between students on the finer points of each chapter topic.
The topics covered are all highly relevant and interesting for college students. Instructors can use the index to choose case studies relating to a particular theme or topic, or cover one or two cases in each of the chapters, or work through the complete range available in the book, as time and needs dictate.
Instructors can have students do comparisons with their own institution's regulations, study the range of college policies in a certain area, or use the codes to discuss legal ramifications of ethical issues.
The discussions demonstrate how to identify issues in a case and how to apply ethical principles to work out solutions, the same tasks students are asked to perform on the shorter additional cases throughout the book. Many open-ended questions encourage students to think for themselves as they follow the discussion.
Offers instructors suggestions for furthering students' (or their own) understanding of various aspects of the chapter topic, and provide sources for some of the chapter's real-life cases.
Instructors can use them for additonal assignments, and students can use them to do research and develop their own case studies.
Allows instructors and students to quickly find cases on specific topics or for particular student groups.
