The Teacher: Responding to Ethical Dilemmas

PREPARING FOR THE TEACHER PROJECT

This project is designed to evaluate your knowledge of The Teacher. You will apply your knowledge of the role and expectations of the professional educator to the characteristics and ethical behaviors learned in the coursework.

Project 700.1 The Teacher: Responding to Ethical Dilemmas

As you have learned in this course, teachers serve as role models and your conduct, both on and off the

job, can significantly impact your professional image. In this project, you are to read each scenario and answer the questions that follow. Your answers should be written in paragraph form and the overall project should be at least two pages. It is highly recommended that you use the Grading Rubric as a guide.
You will be graded on the following criteria:

1. Identification of the behavior
2. Standard cited using the Standard number, letter and the exact language of the standard
3. The justification for your responses
4. Alternative behavior to avoid the ethical dilemma
5. Paper is professionally written, evaluated for structure, organization, and mechanics

Steps

Select either the Elementary Ethical Dilemmas or the Secondary Ethical Dilemmas to respond.

For each scenario, you are to write a short paragraph (at least 1/2 page) that will:

Identify the ethical behavior/dilemma

Cite the standard of professional behavior from the Code of Ethics the action violates using the number, letter and roman numeral where appropriate

Provide justification for your selection of the standard

Describe an alternate behavior that is detailed and appropriate to take in that situation

Use professional language, spelling, and grammar
