Dilemmas

Overview

Over a series of short sessions, pupils will have the opportunity to consider ethical dilemmas which may arise in day to day life. Pupils will be encouraged make decisions by first considering all their options and the consequences of taking each potential action. In group discussions, pupils will be able to practise articulating their views and respond to views that are in contrast to their own.   Each dilemma is designed to be a stimulus for short discussion sessions with your class in which pupils can practise reasoning, listening and speaking skills.
