In this third set of video lectures from Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?, Harvard University professor Michael Sandel introduces the theories of Robert Nozick, a Libertarian philosopher who argues that individuals have the fundamental right to choose how they want to live their own lives, and that government should have minimal interference. In the first lecture, he uses Bill Gates and Michael Jordan as examples to explain Nozick's theory that redistributive taxation is a form of forced labor. In the second lecture, he continues the discussion of redistributive taxation and looks at arguments in its favor. Students are then asked to defend objections against Libertarianism.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
