The word honesty comes from the Latin word honestus, honos, both modifications of the ancient Latin word honor (honour), hence the original meaning “of persons holding an honorable position, respectable.” In simplest terms, the original meaning of honesty was the by-product of respectability and trust associated with a person holding an honorable position- therefore a bishop would be (in the original meaning of the word) assumed to be more honest than a street cleaner.
Post to Discussion Board: Week 2 – Scavenger Hunt – Character Value Lens (Team Project) Due Thursday
Your Team’s Mission
Create a succinct summary of your selected Character Value Lens or theory by providing the following integrated components: 1. A brief definition of your assigned character value (a paragraph or two at most). 2. The major elements/principal terminology of this value (a short list). 3. Classroom context (i.e., how and where and when can you teach this value in the classroom?). 4. Key figures/proponents (3 – 4 individuals associated with this character value). 5. Pictures of at least 3 famous or infamous individuals whom you believe best exemplify this character value OR a list of at least 4 movies whose protagonist or main antagonist best illustrate this character value lens OR a YouTube clip that portrays this character value lens. 6. The historical origin of the character value lens
7. A list of research sources you used that includes a minimum of: a. four scholarly web sources (Wikipedia does not count as a scholarly web source. It is a good place to find references to other scholarly sites, but it is not a source to be used for scholarly information). b. one peer reviewed full-text article (Check the Concordia library for information about how to find peer reviewed articles). Use one of the following formats to prepare your team’s presentation of your Character Value Lens: 1. Textual (limited to one and a half pages: least preferred) 2. Slides (use up to a maximum of 8 PowerPoint slides to add color and flair to your product) 3. Recording (record your findings in an interesting manner and within a 5 – 6 minute timeframe) Post your team’s presentation as an attachment to the Discussion Board. Use the discussion board area where you selected the character lens as a place for communication of group roles and responsibilities.
Right action tends to be defined in terms of general individual rights and standards that have been critically examined and agreed upon by the whole society.
At this level, the individual perceives the maintenance of the expectations of his family, group, or nation as valuable in its own right, regardless of immediate and obvious consequences.
The individual makes a clear effort to define moral values and principles that have validity and application apart from the authority of the groups of persons holding them and apart from the individual’s own identification with the group.
