I've been pretty happy with Gordon Marino's Ethics: The Essential Writings.


A major plus is that it's incredibly affordable--new copies on Amazon right now are around $14. The focus is primary texts with very brief introductions to contextualize each author. It hits a lot of the canon, and then I supplement some other readings. So it may not eliminate scanning and posting of articles but can help cut down on it.


I use James Rachel's book with it's supplement.The supplement is a good collection of primary texts in short bits that undergrads can handle. Saves me the time of cutting down primary texts myself.



The text book is good if you have students who aren't particularly advanced. The reading is VERY simple. But the plus is that increases the number of students who read and understand and are interested. It would only be good for an intro level class
