What Teachers Are Saying About This Discussion Activity

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ These are realistic ethical dilemmas. Bravo. Some of my students are dumbfounded when I present the scenario. It seems they've never contemplated many of them.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It is the last quarter with my Seniors, so finding ways to keep them engaged is taxing. I am using an ethical dilemma as my bellringer each day, and let me just say that my students are loving them! It is a great way to get them talking to one another, and the debates have been hilarious. They enjoy them so much that they were upset when I had a sub and forgot to leave one for them to discuss.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This is such a valuable resource! It can be used as a standalone lesson for introducing so many standards, but I also like to keep them on hand for those times when a lesson or assessment ends earlier than expected. Students love them!
