Humans and Ethical Behavior
This course addresses the concept of worldviews and how they are expressed through moral principles and practices. Students are encouraged to explore their own worldviews and approach an understanding of the importance of worldviews in society. A primary goal of this course is to deepen the understanding of the place of human values and virtues in one's personal life and the context of community. Included in this study is the development of an appreciation of the Scriptures and their role in moral and ethical practice. Students come to understand their opportunity to teach values and about religion as outlined in the California State Board of Education documents: Handbook on the Rights and Responsibilities of School Personnel and Students in the Areas of Providing Moral, Civic, and Ethical Education; Teaching About Religion; Promoting Responsible Attitudes and Behaviors; and Preventing and Responding to Hate and Violence.
