What sort of factors do we take into consideration when faced with difficult moral choices? How has our ethical or moral code been influenced? This outstanding resource has been tried and tested in the classroom over many years and aims to help students understand some of the ethical challenges faced by doctors when deciding who should be given a kidney transplant. This is a lesson designed to be done in groups or pairs before feeding back to a class discussion on the issue. This is a great lesson with which to kick start your tutor time, RE , Science or philosophy and ethics course off with some great engaging discussions.

When you purchase this resource you will be able to download a fully editable PowerPoint presentation which includes information slides, aims, objectives, differentiated outcomes, starters, plenaries, links to relevant video clips, activities and resources to be photocopied and given out to students. The lesson begins by looking at what is morality and how how ethical codes are formed. You have a choice of starters or activities. The scene is then set for the medical ethical debate on who should receive the kidney transplant. Each group or pair of students should be given a copy of the first table which includes the background information about each patient. They are expected to review this patient information and decide upon their rank order of priority. Their results can then be fed back to the class for discussion. The teacher then has the option of either giving out the second patient update information or displaying it upon the board. Students should then be given another opportunity to review their choices before feeding back to a class discussion and producing an extended piece of writing explaining their final decision.

The final slides include a plenary which includes information and video links explaining why organ donation is important in the UK. If you plan to use this elsewhere you might be able to find some similar adverts relevant to your country. I’ve also included a selection of possible homeworks.

The aims of this lesson / activity are:

Theme: Moral Ethics and Philosophy
