This paper presents the ethical principles of the social studies profession in light of the daily routine of an elementary classroom. This pilot study was begun in the spring of 1996 when the researcher spent time in an elementary classroom in the midwest observing the life and culture of a fifth grade classroom. Data collected appeared to showcase the ethical principles adopted by the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) in its code of ethics. The balance of the paper includes the NCSS'"A Code of Ethics," a discussion of social studies and relevant literature, the pilot study, classroom examples of certain ethical principles from the code, and a conclusion that a focus on ethics should be continual and deliberate and that social studies teachers and supervisors, and social studies professors spend more time with these principles as they work with their faculty and their university students.
