Features 62 stories of unresolved moral dilemmas and includes discussion questions and activities that will encourage students in grades 4-8 to think about moral behavior in real life situations and reflect on their own behavior.
Helps develop positive character traits such as kindness, responsibility, sportsmanship, loyalty, honesty, courage, cooperation, teamwork, pride, compassion, sharing, persistence, generosity, optimism, and fairness.
Each lesson has three components:
- An introductory story of an unresolved moral dilemma. Students are given the opportunity to reflect on possible solutions and think about the moral issues involved.
- A written activity that reinforces the character traits used in resolving the dilemma.
- A second story of a moral dilemma for class or homework. The goal is to build student character by repetition—moral dilemma, reflection activity, and application of the character traits to a second story.
