Responsible citizenship requires moral accountability. Geography educators need to give greater attention to the teaching of professional ethics as part of our contribution to the education of responsible citizens. The paper introduces an approach which couples the case method with a jurisprudential inquiry model as a means by which geography teachers might contribute effectively to this education. The approach requires students to review a case involving an ethical dilemma, assess it against relevant normative ethical theory and social standards, and make the best possible decision about the dilemma which they can defend coherently in public.
