The values are the principles or standards which could include rules of conduct, respect, honesty, kindness, sharing and appreciation.
The first value I will be analyzing is gender. Gender is a topic that varies in every culture. The idea is gender has changed and evolved from the settlement of Europeans in the beginning of this nation. Many of the values that were adopted by the Europeans were inspired by the Native Americans. They were changed
Ask a friend or relative their response to one of the dilemmas in the back of the chapter and then asks them why they decided the way they did. (Or show a video clip of someone talking about why they did something.) Now try and identify their reasoning: was it egoism, ethical formalism, utilitarian, ethics of care, religion, or some other ethical system.
The ideas in this assignment that seem useful to me are the consequentialist ethical theories. According to Kenneth A Strike’s The Ethics of Teaching, “Consequentialist theories hold that the rightness or wrongness of an action is to be decided in terms of its consequences” (11). Consequentialist theories are decided between what is considered right or wrong of an action. The action is decided based on the consequences that may occur once the action is done. We usually pick the best action that has the best results and outcomes. For example, if someone was told by their friends to steal an expensive watch from a store they would most likely think of the consequences of her actions. If she steals the watch, her consequences would be she can
Another ethical principles from the core values that I feel is strongly needed is social justice. I feel that is where Social Workers can make the most difference. Challenging the injustice vulnerable population face would help them get access to more resources. Challenging those injustice would also bring much needed awareness on issues vulnerable population faces daily. Social Justice is important because it would give policymakers the push they need to make changes regarding those defenseless
The four major types of ethical approaches span the arena with how they are applied by people. The focus is ranges from how will it affect me or how would my mentor the decision to what is best for the rest of world, community or society. The movie and TV show characters provide a good method of explaining how each approach is used in the character’s decision making process.
The first part was a free-form essay to explain the value of our topic. I chose to talk about morality, especially the relationship between personal and societal morality. In short, I talked about how differences in a person’s morality and the accepted morality of their society can affect both the person’s comfort in life and a society’s function; while a perfect system assumes a common morality in its people, a perfect system wouldn’t then need constructs of religious and secular law to enforce a set of ethics; conversely, a perfect system wouldn’t have criminals or conspirators - but it also wouldn’t
Consider your own personal top five to ten ethical values that are your highest priority. Write in your journal what these ethical values are. Then, compose your own code of ethics; attempt to associate with each value, two example behaviors which reflect each value.
Now, let's see how learning about the Four Ethical Lenses and a simple method for decision-making can help you resolve a typical ethical dilemma. Ready?
During my research into the viewpoints concerning the book of Revelation, I have come away with the knowledge that while there are a variety of differing views with various degrees of merit knowing which is correct is highly improbable. And that the pursuit of greater understanding continues to strengthen my faith and walk as I strive to continue to grow not only from this course but in life. It is through that desire that one can approach with an open mind and spirit the differing views presented concerning Revelation. The four primary viewpoints currently presented are Preterist, Historicist, Futurist, and Idealist/Spiritualist. According to Dr. Zukeran:
Everybody has a different perspective on different topics. Not all viewpoints are the same on certain topics. The perspective others have can shape the way they are now. Different viewpoints show others how you have grown and feel about certain topics. From the perspective of a girl who had a step sister that chose to accept lies and friends over family.
