9780415270687: Key Issues in Bioethics: A Guide for Teachers

Young people are increasingly being exposed to the huge and complex ethical dilemmas involved in issues such as genetic modification, animal rights and cloning, and they are bringing their views into the classroom. But how can teachers be sure they are sufficiently well-informed to help their pupils make sense of the diverse and emotive arguments surrounding these issues?

This book holds the answer. Written by leading ethicists, scientists and technologists, it offers a balanced and jargon-free guide to such highly debated topics as:

* cloning
* in vitro fertilisation
* genetic screening and genetic engineering
* farm animal welfare
* the use of animals in medical experiments.

Written specifically for the non-specialist teacher or lecturer, this book offers suggestions on how to approach the teaching of bioethics and provides useful sources of further information. It may also be of interest to undergraduates on science courses.

Review:

'The book succeeds in its aim to allow teachers to be well informed about these complex issues and hence to be confident in running, guiding and supporting work with pupils and helping them to come to views that are well informed and founded on a sound knowledge base. This book is essential reading for all science teachers as the issues involved all feature, to varying degrees, in the curriculum at key stages 3 and 4.' - School Science Review

'This is an interesting and thought-provoking book which suggests to teachers how they may frame their discussions on bioethics with students and also provides essays on some of the most relevant issues currently faced by teachers.' - Journal of Biological Education
