Today's learning goal: Synthesize the various philosophies and apply them to various moral dilemmas
1. Study Groups: "Practice Application" Activity: Discuss the various social/political dilemmas through the lens of each philosophy
2. Whole class discussion on the "practice application" activity as needed
3. Test Prep "Stations"
Station 1: Flashcards
Make flashcards that include:
Station 2: Review your notes
Review the powerpoint lecture, your notes, your study group's notes and/or key passages from Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do? As you do so, jot down questions you have. Try to get help from peers/Ashley in answering those questions.
Station 3: More application!
With a small group, come up with your own moral dilemmas. These can be hypothetical situations like the Trolley Car dilemma, or they can be real political issues like Hurricane Charlie and price gouging, etc... Work together to discuss how various philosophers would justify what they think the most just course of action or governmental policy would be. Be sure to use the key terms associated with each philosophy in your explanations.
