In the Australian Curriculum, students develop ethical understanding as they identify and investigate the nature of ethical concepts, values and character traits, and understand how reasoning can assist ethical judgment. Ethical understanding involves students in building a strong personal and socially oriented ethical outlook that helps them to manage context, conflict and uncertainty, and to develop an awareness of the influence that their values and behaviour have on others.
ACARA has developed a series of general capabilities as part of the Australian Curriculum, one of which is concerned with ethical understanding. Your task today is learn what the ethical understanding capability involves and to comment on how it might be possible to address it in a school library context.
