Studying ethics is incredibly fun, and it also develops critical thinking and logical reasoning skills.  But most importantly, studying ethics helps people develop their own moral codes.  One great way for students to delve in to these ideas and concepts is through the lens of favorite books, movies, and shows.    

In this course we will explore ethics through dilemmas that come up in the following:

Harry Potter 

The Hobbit 

Ender’s Game 

The Hunger Games 

The Good Place

The Simpsons

The Office

Students do NOT have to have read all of these books or seen all of the movies or TV show episodes, but if you happen to love any of these series, then you will definitely love this class!  Every week we will go over enough of the plot to make sure everyone can understand and share thoughts on the dilemmas we discuss in class.  Warning:  this will definitely include spoilers for anything you haven’t read.  

Please note that for The Hobbit and Ender’s Game, we will focus only on those books, and not the Lord of the Rings Trilogy or the other books about Ender.

This is a discussion class–there will not be any lectures.  We will use ethical dilemmas from books, shows and movies to focus our discussions on various questions and ideas in ethics.  Students should come to class prepared to have their cameras on and actively participate.

Students should expect approximately one hour of homework per week.  

NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by August 20th to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will notified via email.

Funny and Informative

I have taken several ethics classes with Ms. Sarah now and they are always an absolute blast. Somehow, despite being genuinely educational and thought provoking, they are also laugh out loud funny and enjoyable. Ms. Sarah always presents ideas and concepts that are difficult and actually interesting to talk about, even if the class agrees on what should or should not be done. I would absolutely and whole heartedly recommend her and am already signed up for a future class with her.

Really fun and interesting classes

I’ve taken a lot of her classes by now and I love how she encourages discussions and we get to disagree with each other and share our opinions and change thought experiments to see how that would affect the ethics of it.

Good Ethics class

It was a fun course!! Very interesting and thought provoking. Dragged a little at times but was ultimately a good time.

Supper great teacher learned a lot

I liked the class because it was very open to discussion! I feel the course covered a lot and improved my understanding of ethics.

Engaging Ethics Classes

Discussions were not lectures; they were engaging with the rest of the class. Everything was interactive. Lessons focused on current events and hypothetical situations. Thought-provoking and intellectual discussions. Highly recommend the Ethics classes that Ms. Sarah teaches!
