Ethics presentation lessons - 21 ethic questions with sources for and against

Ethics presentation lessons - 21 ethic questions with sources for and against

This is a comprehensive set of lesson resources that I have created for form lesson time. The lessons begin with the PowerPoint that introduces a brief history of ethics (religion, Socrates, Kant) then gets students to consider what we mean by the term 'ethics'. A definition is provided. The teacher then goes through how the presentations will be structured and tips for giving a good quality presentation. Students then select which one of the 21 questions they would like to investigate using the sources that have been carefully provided. Many of these sources I have come across (e.g. the Sports Gene, James Mitchell). Others I have had to research. Websites links are provided. Students then plan their presentations and present for 3 to 5 minutes. There is a checklist that can be used to provide feedback. The pictures used are not under copyright protection.

How Much Power Does North Korea Have? Video Guide

How Much Power Does North Korea Have? Video Guide

This is an 11 minute video about how much power North Korea has and how it builds that power or would perhaps use it. The video is visually supported very well and is comprehensible for students. I like to play the video once for students just to watch. Then I hand out the guides and have them see what they can remember. After that I play the video again for them to get missing details. Finally, we have a class discussion. Takes about 35 minutes. The file is in PDF, Word and a fillable Word form. This way you can print the handout for students to write on or share it for them to easily fill out on their devices as a Word form. Thanks! Follow me for more product updates!
