Ethics in America from Annenberg Learner Videos

Ethics in America I: Build moral reasoning by examining ethical dilemmas in this video instructional series for college and high school classrooms and adult learners. This series contains 10 one-hour video programs and uses the Socratic method to build analytical skills and examine ethical questions. The programs aim to sharpen moral reasoning without favoring a particular position by exploring ethical dilemmas in legal, political, medical, corporate, and military arenas. 

Ethics in America II: A video series for middle school, high school, and adult learners containing 6 one-hour video programs, downloadable discussion guide and Ethics reader, and website.

Leading scientists, journalists, physicians, jurists, ethicists, businesspeople, and politicians, among others, were brought together to grapple with ethical dilemmas that touch on life and death; security and liberty; friendship, truth-telling, and secret-keeping; democracy and justice; and much more. The result is thoughtful, dramatic, sometimes funny, and always thoroughly engaging. Ethics in America II deals with issues that are contemporary yet perennial, so that the scenarios may well seem “ripped from today’s headlines” even years after the programs were produced.
