Faculty: Dr. Tom Kelly and Dr. Jeremy Leeds
2017 – 2018
This class will be an “active seminar.” We will read, discuss, debate, and participate in activities in school and beyond, as a group. We will be functioning on two basic tracks:
First, the traditionally academic. We will learn about ethical philosophies, concepts and systems, and explore and discuss a variety of issues from their vantage points.
Second, the active and service-oriented. We will be participating in a variety of initiatives that will give us the opportunity to use and reflect on ethics in action. Under this heading, we have the potential to participate in projects with a variety of organizations; we might “create” our own community agency or school; and we will develop other ideas as the year progresses.
