Bad Business - introduction to Business Ethics

(0)
A description of a fictitious business called Everlasting Soul - a children’s clothing company. I have used this in Key Stage 3 RE lessons. Throughout the overview of the company are questionable practices that would contradict ethical theories and religious teachings. Students highlight the things that they think present a problem. It can also be used with GCSE Business Studies students as a starter on Business Ethics. Great paired activity. Generates good discussion and debate.

An induction activity for students studying A level Sociology. I give the students this activity to complete during the summer break between Year 12 and 13 in preparation for the Beliefs in Society module. It gets them thinking about how they will conduct the research. I encourage them to explore some primary research and visit a local religious community. During the lessons, they have a great case study to apply to what they learn, particularly those students that are not members of a religious community.
