Unit Introduction and What You Will Learn
Week 11, we will be continuing to apply the ethical reasoning strategies to case studies, looking at how we personally connect with social work values, and planning our groups for next week’s group assignment.
Week 11 Objectives:
- Discuss the role the value Integrity has in our lives.
- Expand knowledge of ethical reasoning strategies.
- Apply the Essential Steps model to more case studies.

A–01: Asynchronous Participation and Engagement
For week 11, you must create at least three replies in the forums and post a video to Flip.
- First, two of your replies can be across any of the three case studies we are reviewing this week: Whistle Blowing, Bartering for Services, and Managing Client Fraud or the discussion we are having regarding the reading this week at The Thinker’s Guide to Understanding the Foundations of Ethical Reasoning - The Function of Ethics and The Problem of Pseudo-Ethics
- Second, you need to connect with your group and make a plan for when you will meet during week 12 and how you will connect. You can see the PDF of the Group Assignments and a link for each of the groups individual forums: Group 1 (Tar, Hselhsel, Jhow, Maria), Group 2 (Diana, Amanda, Daniela, Kayla), Group 3 (Ale, Amber, Kareli, Monique), Group 4 (Yatzire, Aylin, Jessica), Group 5 (Elizabeth, Amairani, Dianne), and Group 6 (MT, Isai, Antonio).
- Third, everybody must submit a flip video about integrity. You can see the forum post Flip Video: The Ethical Principle of Integrity or view the activity directly on Flip W-11: Integrity.
The NASW Code of Ethics (2021) is available online and in your textbook and is helpful in your discussion about the case examples. In addition, there are three case studies this week to go through again that all come from a previous version of your textbook, Reamer (2006). The PDFs of these documents are below as handouts. You can also see the Essential Steps for Ethical Decision Making on the National Association of Social Workers - Massachusetts Chapter (n.d.) website.
Your reading this week is from a booklet published by Paul and Elder (2006) The Thinker’s Guide to Understanding the Foundations of Ethical Reasoning.
Next week we will complete A-04: Ethical Decision-Making Case Study Group Chat, and I have picked groups members for everybody. You can see a handout of the group assignments.
