ETHICS IMPORTANCE LESSON PLAN
Suggested Method of Instruction:
The teacher or facilitator could either read through the content of the lesson or could require the students to read it on their own. After going over the content, students should answer the questions on their own in writing. When they are finished, the answers can be discussed aloud or could be reviewed by the teacher or facilitator.
Students' responses to the questions should be graded based on their honest ability to reflect on what the question was asking. Older students will obviously have more complex responses than younger students. Responses should demonstrate that the students have given serious consideration to them.
Possible answers to Question #2 should focus on the fact that in ghostwriting the person writing the speech knows that his or her material is being used by the other person. The speaker also must be honest about the speech being written by another person if asked.
Optional Follow-up Activity:
Have students watch several political commercials or speeches. Ask them to evaluate the ads/speeches using the ethical guidelines discussed in the lesson. Ask them to determine whether the politicians in the ads live up to the ideal of “good people speaking well.”
