Unformatted text preview: Chapter 3 Speaking Freely and Ethically Professor Krueger What is "ethics?" Beliefs, values, and moral principles by which people determine what is right and wrong. Can be based on the environment: cultural norms, professional standards or individual beliefs. Since "free speech" is protected by law, speakers must learn how to balance the right to speak freely with the responsibility to speak ethically. What makes an ethical speaker?

Be Sensitive to and Tolerant of Differences Need to become aware other's feelings, needs, interests, and backgrounds.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
