Summary
    Escape into Excellence: Building a Foundation for Honest Decision-Making shapes students' critical thinking skills and ethics through student-centered learning activities, practical tool kits, case studies, and readings. The material increases confidence and helps students make their own “personal best” choices.

    Topics include the substance of ethics, approaches to ethics, integrative ethics, and evolving bioethics. Each of the seven chapters features structured learning opportunities, reading strategies, interactive key words, think-aloud and think-pair-share activities, concept mapping, and self-assessments. Of special note are the visual image structures, which use specific icons to indicate transitional quotes, reflection opportunities, learning objectives, and more.

    Rooted in ten years of classroom implementation, Escape into Excellence provides students the groundwork for ethical and authentic decision-making. The book is ideal for courses in law, ethics, philosophy, healthcare, or any discipline that requires thoughtful and considered engagement of one's values and judgments.
