Abstract
This paper aims to analyze the moral agency theory holistically and discusses its implications for the development of the study of pedagogy teaching profession ethics-critical consciousness based. It uses the qualitative approach with interpretive paradigms and methods of Meta-analysis by Meta design theory. Research data sources are the result of research articles on moral agency, the development of ethics of teaching profession, and the pedagogy of critical consciousness gathered by documentation studies and reviewed systematically. The results of this research conclude that the concept of teachers as moral agency can be understood as the double condition which covers the teacher as: 1) exemplary figures who perform professional acts ethically; and 2) as moral educators who teach the virtues of prosperity to the students so that they become human being with character. The concept of critical consciousness education can be an alternative to the development of teacher's moral agency which is constructed by some of the essential components of: moral identity, moral sensitivity, moral consideration, moral motivation, and moral action. This paper is expected to provide significant benefits for the development of literature on the theory of teacher capacity building in the areas of personality, ethics, and morality. This paper also provides a didactic design alternative to the pedagogy of teacher-based professional ethics of critical consciousness (conscientization).
