For Teachers

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

Thank you, fellow teachers for visiting. I hope to provide you with resources and motivation to teach ethics in your classes. I think you'll find that once you start thinking in this way, it is easier to come up with lessons of your own.

I have only begun posting lesson plans, so I appreciate your patience. I work alone on this project, in my spare time outside of a busy teaching schedule--I'm sure you know how it is!

Below, I have provided links to lessons and readings you may want to use. I recommend you start the whole process by reading the short essay that I wrote, explaining why I think teaching ethics is so important. You can find that article under the "For Teachers" tab above. You can also find out more by exploring the entire Revolution Ethics Project site.
