Description & Features

This award-winning collection of ethical dilemmas is used by parents and teachers to initiate important values and ethics discussions. The open-ended questions pose real life problems that require students, Grades 6-12+, to decide what they would do when two or more ethical beliefs are pitted against each other (see sample). The discussions also enable parents and teachers to listen and observe a student's thinking, values, and ethical beliefs. Students often benefit from hearing the thinking and beliefs of others. These dilemmas provoke engaging classroom/family discussions that improve listening and communication, develop critical thinking skills, and explore character-building issues.

Each activity presents students with an initial question for consideration (a moral dilemma) and then asks subsequent questions that add additional insights into the particular situation, forcing the students to reconsider if the new insights should/would change what they would do.

Product Reviews Write a review for this product

"'What Would You Do?' presents 30 separate moral dilemmas, the exploration of which elicits surprisingly nuanced listening and communication skills from children. Even more striking is the depth of critical thinking and analysis kids bring into play as they ponder and respond to these carefully crafted scenarios. Each stated dilemma is one or two sentences long (for example, you learn that someone you know has stolen something) and is followed by several open-ended questions and shifting 'what if' scenarios that require students to decide what they would do when two or more of their ethical beliefs are pitted against each other. Exploring these complexities during discussions at home and in the classroom cultivates in students newfound articulateness, acuity and critical thinking skills that are applicable to a broad range of disciplines." - Tillywig Parents' Favorite Products Award Review,
