Trends prevailing in the media suggest a seemingly disintegrating concept of media ethics. It is no surprise; being ethical is hard work and, could very well put a person in conflict with prevailing trends. Many of the people cited within the 13 essays of Desperately Seeking Ethics illustrate this_from Socrates and Martin Luther King Jr., who both died for their principles, to reporter David Kidwell of the Miami Herald who chose jail over testifying for the prosecution in a murder trial. This is not just another media ethics book. Engaging and non-conventional it breaks away from the usual text practice of presenting the ethical theories of well-known philosophers in watered-down form. Instead, the contributors, all of whom teach media ethics, select a poem, movie, song, speech, or other cultural document, analyze it for implied or explicit ethical lessons, and then apply the lessons of that work to a specific case that involved controversial media conduct. In addition to endnotes, each chapter contains questions for discussion and a list of further readings. Where possible, the contributors have included all or part of the poems, speeches, and other documents they analyze as sources of ethical instruction and inspiration.

What makes someone educated? Is it getting a perfect score on a standardized test or passing a prescribed curriculum? Is it landing a good job after high school? In this book, Howard Good answers these questions imaginatively using the beloved movie classic, The Wizard of Oz as a metaphor for the quest for a well-rounded education. It is the author's theory that the main characters in the story represent the four essential educational goals. Adding together what Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, and Dorothy want (brains, a heart, courage, and a home, respectively), gives you a complete education. Features: .A chapter devoted to each character of The Wizard of Oz and the object of his or her quest .An epilogue that examines what kind of teacher the Wizard is and how he could become a better one .Classroom activities that teachers can use to develop empathy, moral courage, a love of learning, and a sense of belonging Illustrated with many anecdotes from Good's experiences as a parent, teacher, and school board member, The Theory of Oz challenges education's current preoccupation with testing and sorting students according to one national standard. It provides inspiration as well as realistic advice for teachers and others interested in empowering students."
