Teaching Ethics is a website dedicated to promoting the inclusion of ethics related themes in secondary school social studies curriculums. It was set up and is maintained by Anthony Tiatorio. Please send any comments or feedback to tiatorio@ethicsineducation.com

Mr. Tiatorio served for over 30 years as the Social Studies Department Head in the Mansfield, Massachusetts public schools where he wrote and implemented many successful ethics teaching strategies and lesson plans for social studies classes in grades 6 to 12.

Mr. Tiatorio calls for a history based, critical thinking, approach to ethics education. Through Teaching Ethics he offers to share some of his work.

The basic postings on Teaching Ethics are two ETHICS WORKBOOKS for students in grades 7 through 12. These workbooks present ways to embed ethics instruction into standard world and American history programs. They are offered as a modest first step toward building a database in this area. The workbooks, and the accompanying teacher’s guides, may be printed and duplicated by individual teachers for use with their classes. Supplementary active student involvement strategies developed by practicing teachers to implement ideas in the Ethics Workbooks are also posted and are free to schools.

 Duplication for sale or for any other commercial purpose is prohibited.

The Ethics Workbook I: World History was written for younger students in typical secondary world history classes in grades 7 – 10 as a first introduction to ethical issues.    It treats a wide array of topics and simplifies the thinking of the most common ethicists and philosophers across the span of civilization.

The Ethics Workbook II: American History was written for older students in typical secondary American history classes in grades 11 – 12. It examines the major conflicts and turning points in American History from an ethical perspective.
