CRIS Case Study Materials in Ethical Decision Making.
Blanning, James R.
Designed for secondary-level classroom discussion, these materials contain nine, short case studies of ethical dilemmas. The cast studies focus mainly on incidents and issues relevant to high school students. Discussion questions for each case study require students to examine the case, discuss the issue, and make an ethical decision about how they would have reacted in the same situation. The topics of the case studies include stealing from a classmate and shoplifting; plagiarism on a term paper; anti-Semitism; honor codes, cheating, and corporation corruption; homosexuality; teacher-student confidentiality and abortion; the right to die; adolescent drug use; and school integration and black student identity.
