We began our Ethics unit with a group discussion about the meaning of Ethics and then by debating a real life ethical situation.

The discussion and situation are both in the following link. If you were gone today, answer the opening questions on the second slide, get the definition of Ethics in your notebook, and then decide what you would do in the Ethical Situation and explain why.

Here’s the link to today’s stuff: Ethics – Day 1
