This package includes 12 different moral/ethical dilemmas that could be common in a child’s life. Students would read a short fictional passage usually involving 2-3 characters and then answer about 6-7 questions about the passage. The questions are all open ended questions using question words like Who, Where, Why, How, etc. There is no right or wrong answer to any of the questions but rather it is an activity to help the student with critical thinking, problem solving, making good decisions, and exploring options/alternatives. Common questions from the activity would be similar to: What would you do in this situation? Who is someone you can talk with to help? How would you feel if…? Every passage also has a part where students can reflect and write about a similar experience that they may have had.
This activity could also be great for parents, social workers, or writing centers to give to younger kids to help them explore options and make sound decisions. It could also be a great conversation starter activity to have students open up about topics such as bullying, netiquette, stealing, secrets, etc.
Each reading is 2 pages long (passage + questions) and I have included the document in a Word Version in case you want to change any of the questions and also in a PDF format.
I hope this document is useful for you and I welcome all comments, questions, and feedback. Thank you for viewing.
