If you have a particular student (or an entire class) that has been showing unacceptable school behavior, poor judgment, this activity is an opportunity to discuss real world situations they may soon find themselves facing. This activity would work well in a Health class, by a counselor or Behavior Strategist, or by any teacher dealing with behavior problems that has noticed their students making poor choices.

This worksheet asks students to read about scenarios that teens often find themselves in and determine whether the person showed good judgment - whether their behavior was OK or NOT OK. For example, Stacey, age 12, invited her friend over for a slumber party. Stacey’s parents decided to leave the girls home alone and go out for dinner and a movie. While Stacey’s parents were gone, the girls found a beer in the fridge and drank it together.

First each student will rate the scenario by themselves. The worksheet is then to be taken home and students must review their decisions with a parent or trusted adult. The adult must then add their opinions to the homework. The following day, have students share which scenarios their opinions may have differed from the adult's and which scenarios they agreed upon.
