Ethical Dilemmas – Moral Dilemmas – Classroom Discussion #ethical, #moral, #dilemma,


#

This is #17 of an ongoing series of discussion starters from the case files of Charis Denison. The situations presented are very real and are changed monthly. Please try them out with your students and share your results with us. You can find the complete archive of dilemmas here.

THE SITUATION
(present this to your students)


Kevin is a talented basketball player whose high school team made it into the playoffs and all the way to the city championship game. As a result, Kevin had to miss his school s baseball tryouts and a couple of weeks of practice. So, he was grateful when the coach gave him an opportunity to come out for the team anyway. Kevin s older brother had been on the varsity team for four years, so the coach knew the family and assumed Kevin would follow in his brother s footsteps. But Kevin had never played league baseball before and had no expectation of getting a lot of playing time. Besides, the team already had a solid lineup of experienced players; he would just have to be patient and earn his position through hard work.

Which is why Kevin was shocked when the coach announced the starting lineup for the first game: Kevin was picked to start at third base.

Kevin immediately felt confused, then embarrassed, then guilty. He was confused because the coach had never seen him play. He felt embarrassed and guilty because everyone knew that the coach must have made this decision based on Kevin s athletic reputation and the coach s relationship with Kevin s older brother. Kevin considered himself a team player. He also knew the other third baseman a strong player who never missed a practice. Surely the other guy deserved to be the starter. He looked around at his teammates and saw himself through their eyes. He felt bad. He walked to his position without making eye contact with the coach or the players.

After the game, Kevin called his brother and said he was thinking about asking the coach to let him step down until he had earned the position in a way that was fair to the rest of the team. His brother said no way. Life is about seizing opportunity. That s how you achieve your dreams. Why give up your big chance? Besides, he said, I put in a good word for you, so don t blow it.

Kevin felt like he was stuck. If he kept silent, he risked the respect of his team; if he came forward, he risked the athletic opportunity and his relationship with his coach. He needed to make a decision before the next game.

haris (KAIR-iss) Denison, founder of Prajna Consulting, is an expert in Community Involvement, Human Development, and Ethics. She has built her experience primarily by working with schools and non-profits for the past 15 years.

After initially teaching middle and high school English and Creative Writing, Charis began to develop curricula and publish articles related to social justice, ethics, human development, community involvement, and experiential education. She has received national recognition for her work in those fields, as well as for her community-based work with American teens and Tibetan refugees in Central Asia.

Charis co-wrote Tolerance for Others. a middle school human development text, with Leni Wildflower. She currently works as the national Service-Learning consultant for the Durango Institute for Co-Curricular Education.

Charis also teaches at Marin Academy in San Rafael, California, and runs Prajna Consulting. Through Prajna she consults with schools, parents, students, and businesses both organizationally and individually. Charis also facilitates workshops and speaks on a wide variety of topics.

NOTES FOR THE FACILITATOR
(this is for you)

This case is a great one for introducing students to the idea that taking no action is taking action. In other words, when my students are discussing scenarios like this and come back with the infamous, just take what happened and don t do anything; it s not your responsibility, I reply, not making a choice is a choice.

Students love to talk about times when they have been the victims of an unfair situation. It s a lot of fun to turn the tables on them and have them talk about when they have benefited from an unfair situation. Do they bear some responsibility to restore justice? I find it effective to get students to articulate what each of three parties would consider fair in the scenario (the coach, Kevin, the team).

If you have covered any of the more formal ethical principles, this case works very well when you assign one of the three principles to each group and have them apply it to their decision (ends-based, rule-based, care-based).

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
(also, debate topics, writing assignments, etc.

  • What do you think Kevin should do? What do you think you would do?
  • How do you think the team might feel about the coach letting Kevin start without having seen him play or participate in the first two weeks of practice?
  • What do you think is the coach s reason for making Kevin a starting player? Do you agree with it?
  • How do you feel about the role Kevin s brother is playing in all this?
  • How might Kevin feel if he doesn t talk to the coach?
  • How much influence do you think Kevin s brother has on Kevin s choice?
  • If you were faced with an ethical dilemma, how important would your sibling s opinion be?
  • Have you ever seen someone you know benefit from an unfair situation? What happened? What did it feel like? How did the person benefiting respond? If you didn t agree with that response, how do you wish he/she would have responded?
  • Have you ever benefited from an unfair situation? What happened and how did you respond? Would you respond in the same way again?

SHARE YOUR RESULTS WITH US. How did your students resolve this dilemma? Did anything surprising happen? Tell us about your discussion and we may publish your comments. Click here to send us an email.

Sheppard Software: Fun free online learning games and activities for kids


#

I stumbled upon your fun interactive geography games from a link on the Massachusetts Geographic Alliance Website. Since then, your games have become quite a hit with my competitive colleagues!
–Candice Gomes, Education Outreach Coordinator, Boston Public Library (Sheppard Software’s geography games were featured in the Boston Public Library’s 2006 Exhibition on Mapping)

Terrific online educational games, especially geography.
–Dallas Children’s Museum

First, let me say I love your website! I have students with learning disabilities that need multiple way to learn math, and your site fills the bill! – Darrin, Rose Park Elementary in Billings, MT
Awesome site. it is the only reason I am passing my World Geography class! –Stephen
Our preschool teacher just sent us homework with this new website on it! My twins love it – they are 4 1/2 and can’t get enough! The sounds, the action, so many choices and things to do. I bookmarked this for them and have sent the website to numerous friends and best of all it’s FREE!
Thank you for such a wonderful learning tool. — -Cherie Ventola

Let me say that you guys have an awesome website. I stumbled across your site one day, and it has been the easiest, most effective, and really the most fun method for learning geography that I’ve found. –David Weaver

I am thrilled to have stumbled upon your site! As a homeschooling mom, I love to find sites that encourage brain activity and reinforce the facts I teach during learning time!
The range of information is wonderful. Keep up the fantastic work!
-Mrs. JaNell Hancock

Your games are AMAZING!

Your website has SO much to offer!

This site is exactly what I have been looking for! I have four children within five years of age and they can all play your games! I love that you can choose your level of difficulty. The games are colorful and simple, not cluttered like some. The instructions are easy to understand and they cover basic learning that can be neglected with other “too busy” games. I can’t believe what a blessing it is to have stumbled upon this site! I looked up “kindergarten math games online.” This is the first one that I actually enjoyed navigating around in and that actually kept the kids’ attention without discouraging them.

This site will be a daily part of our learning! The kids were fighting over who could take the next turn at the learning game! It is reinforcing everything I am trying to teach.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

Airline Discounts for Children

All children over the age of 2 must have a ticket for their own seat. (Photo: Digital Vision./Photodisc/Getty Images )

Related Articles

Air travel is often expensive, with many airlines charging fees for checked baggage, meals and extra legroom. In some instances, travelers with children are able to catch a break on airline fees by qualifying for a reduced fare child’s ticket or even receiving a free ticket for a lap baby.

Infant Travel

Airlines typically offer parents of children under 2 years of age the opportunity to hold the child on their lap. Tickets for lap babies are generally free or require payment of airline fees and taxes only on domestic flights, though a small ticket fee is commonly included on international flights. In addition, some airlines, such as Southwest, give a ticket discount to infants traveling in a FAA-approved child restraint, such as a car seat, while other airlines, such as United offer complementary bassinets for use on international flights with an infant under 6 months of age.

Children on Domestic Flights

Parents of children over the age of 2 are typically required to pay the full adult fare for their kids. Select airlines offer reduced fares for children, such as Southwest, though the discount offers vary by flight. Though a few discounts are available for children flying domestically, most airlines allow a stroller and a car seat to be included in a child’s baggage allowance for no cost.

Learn Arabic #islam, #islam #online, #learn #arabic, #arabic #courses, #online #arabic

Methodology

Don t you wish you could understand the Qur an directly? In Arabic? Without translation? Free live training reveals how to read Arabic in 21 short days!

How many times have you asked, “Why is learning Arabic so hard even though it’s supposed to be easy?”

A few? A dozen? At least once?

And how many times have you found an answer that actually gives you hope in your own ability to master it?

Exactly. Because HERE is your answer.

If you’re looking to understand the Qur’an when you stand in prayers this upcoming Ramadan, you NEED to attend this free web-class.

It’s free AND packed with more than an entire YEAR’S worth of university Arabic.

Yes, because Arabic has a CORE and CENTRAL theme that can be taught in an incredibly short period of time.

Knowing this CORE puts you head and shoulders above other students who spend YEARS studying the language as a series of disconnected rules and long lists of words.

Did you know that the majority of meanings in Arabic don’t even come from words.

1. Vowels
2. Patterns
3. grammatical structures

In this free web-class, you will learn how to master the core of how Arabic ACTUALLY works by focusing on the MECHANISM that governs the conveyance of “Non-word meanings”.

What in other languages requires separate words to communicate, Arabic does it through single vowels, entire configurations of vowels (what we call patterns) and grammatical structures.

That is, the WAY in which words are combined together results in meaning ABOVE AND BEYOND the meanings you get from the individual words.

I’ll share with you:

> How to END low motivation and eliminate confusion surrounding the language.

> The NEW way to master vocabulary without tedious memorization

> How to reduce the entire language into just two issues: “sequence not determining grammar” and the “lack of ‘is issue.

> How the Arabic language RESOLVES these two issues through two VERY SIMPLE solutions that can be summarized in a sentence each.

> Plus a whole lot more

It’s hard to keep your enthusiasm for learning high when you’re continuously taught the basics again and again.

Told to memorize endless lists of vocabulary

And taught rules that you really don’t understand and have no earthly idea of why they’re even important

Or how they can ever lead to a better understanding of the Qur’an and Hadith

While one, two or more Ramadans come and go and you’re still stuck at the same level. Year after Year.

That’s what this system is designed to help you avoid.

Learn how to dive straight into the core of the language and focus on the aspects that matter the most.

> Be exposed to what TRULY makes Arabic superior and unique and become emotionally connected so you never give up

> Learn in a way that FEEDS your natural desire to learn and keeps you ENTHUSIASTIC

> Get a complete BIG PICTURE understanding of the entire language so new rules instead of overwhelming you actually excite you because you can see HOW they tie into the big picture

All you gotta do is register here and then show up on the live training.

Then click the link below and register for this free training today.

Join me and let me show you a one-of-a-kind approach that s working really, really well.

The ultimate guide to long-haul travel with young children #cheap #airline

The ultimate guide to long-haul travel with young children

Experts share their top tips for enjoying family getaways that deliver enjoyment for adults and offspring alike, and for coping with the inevitable incidents

The thought of faraway holidays with children can leave many parents feeling fatigued before the plane has even taken off. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Marianne Rogerson, a mother of two, was determined not to let being a parent curtail her spirit of adventure. Rogerson, who grew up in Hong Kong, has always harboured a passion for adventure travel, trekking up mountains in Peru, white water rafting in Costa Rica and hiking the rainforest in Borneo.

Having children means less of such adrenaline-fuelled fun. “Things have to be a little calmer with toddlers in tow,” Rogerson says – but her wanderlust has not waned. This year, the mumonthemove blogger took her daughter, four, and two-year-old son bamboo rafting in Guilin, southern China, and on a farming and fishing adventure in Hoi An, Vietnam.

Anders Bay Jenson describes his frequent trips around the globe with wife Alexandra and son Anton, five, on the blog threeonthego.com

He and his wife are firm believers that children are an asset to travel. “We refused to believe having a child should prevent us from travelling,” says Jenson. “The way in which we travel has changed. We travel slower but we see much more, and with completely different eyes; also through the eyes of our son.”

Still, for many families, travelling abroad is as much about mishaps as having fun – whether it’s temper tantrums, wetting themselves while asleep on your lap or spilling your red wine on the plane. So these are some of the factors to consider when planning the next family getaway.

Location, location, location

Booking hotels with child-friendly facilities can make life easier, especially for relaxing beach holidays. This also guarantees the presence of other families, so your kids won’t get disapproving looks for splashing in the pool.

The ethos of Intrepid Travel (intrepidtravel.com) is that families can have fun off the beaten track. It offers tailor-made trips for families in Africa, the Middle East, India and the Himalayas that feature a range of activities but build in flexible family time.

Finding a suitable destination is also a top priority: no one wants to drag their children to a city. Safedestinations.com is a great resource, packed full of tips on safe places to visit with the family. Hong Kong ranks 12th safest among 141 countries and territories listed on the website, with Finland, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates taking the top three spots.

Planning and packing

Engaging children in learning about the world can go a long way in pushing their boundaries. Subscribing to tools such as Little Passports (littlepassports.com) will give them an appetite for travel. Australian mumpacktravel.com blogger Evie Farrell and her daughter Emmie, five, gear up for adventures with a countdown on a blackboard, counting off each day until their departure.

Pre-booking a baby cot or rollaway bed at hotels and checking the availability of other amenities, such as a baby bath and steriliser, is recommended. This saves on suitcase space and lugging around excess luggage, says Sotheat Heng of Discover the Mekong, which organises tailor-made trips across Southeast Asia.

Nicola Burke, the author of award-winning family travel blog jetlagandmayhem.com, often packs travel blinds. “I’ve stayed in far too many hotels where rogue windows stream light in and wake my kids up early,” says the mother of two. Portable blackout blinds, such as the Gro Anywhere Blind or SnoozeShade, can be bought for cots, or you can make your own using black bin liners and Sellotape.

To avoid jet lag, adapt to the local schedule as soon as you can, and resist the urge to snooze the day away. Getting out into the daylight will help reset your body clock.

Get the gear

Investing in good equipment goes a long way: Rogerson often takes along a lightweight Maclaren stroller and ready bed – a blow-up mattress with a built-in sleeping bag – while Anders buys garments made of merino wool (such as those from New Zealand brand Icebreaker), which are easy to clean and don’t smell.

The Trunki – fun mini suitcases with wheels that young children can hitch a ride on – make walking long airport corridors fun for kids. The Maxi Micro Luggage Scooter is an alternative for older children. The 1stClassKid+ Travel Pillow is another worthwhile investment. Light to carry, it inflates to fit on the floor in between passenger seats so young children can spread out to sleep.

Up and away

The idea of keeping young children entertained during long hours in the air or waiting at airports during stopovers and because of delays sends chills down the spines of the most seasoned parents. Packing saviours such as snacks, colouring books and toys in hand luggage is essential, and downloading movies and games on the iPad is a must.

“People can be as disapproving as they like but the iPad is an absolute godsend,” says Rogerson.

She often books overnight flights for long-haul trips in the hope the children will fall asleep.

Infants under the age of two can fly free of charge if seated on an adult’s lap. On long-haul flights, most airlines offer bassinets that hook into the wall in front of bulkhead seats, so book early to reserve the right seat. Consult SeatGuru for the plane’s layout to find spots with the most leg room.

Shea Stanley, co-founder of parenting site Little Steps Asia, says bending the rules is a no-brainer. “While travelling, all traditional rules go out the window, including bribery. It works wonders on a flight,” says Stanley, who has two children.

She packs a bag of little surprises – one for every hour of the flight – and rewards her children for good behaviour and nap time. “It’s all about survival.”

Many parents dread the thought of flying with a baby who won’t stop crying, but Farrell believes such anxiety is unnecessary.

“People are generally understanding, and your priority is your baby and their comfort. If your baby cries, then comfort them as you would at home and try to enjoy the flight,” says Farrell, who is gearing up for a year backpacking across Southeast Asia with her daughter.

Out and about

Rogerson makes it a point to balance cultural excursions with a fun activity, such as the hotel pool or beach time. “Nothing ruins a sight-seeing day more than a whingeing child,”she says.

Long day trips can be broken up with snack breaks, games such as Eye Spy and scavenger-hunt-style activity sheets. Sotheat says: “There are lots of ideas online for games to keep children engaged.”

Many holiday destinations offer classic bus tours of major sites, which Jenson says is ideal for families.

“There’s a reason why the ‘classic bus tours’ have become classic,” he says. “They give you an easy overview of the place so you can easily pick “must sees” to look at afterwards.”

Older children can be kept occupied creating a scrap book. Pinterest is full of ideas – visit the Vacation Travel Scrapbooking board for inspiration. “Give them a cheap compact, digital camera to shoot and record their own memories. You’ll be surprised by what they see,” Jenson says.

Despite the extended pre-planning, tackling long-distance travel as a family is undoubtedly an enriching experience, he says. “Children are some of the best travel mates you will ever get.”

Flight essentials for babies

Nicola Burke, who blogs on jetlagandmayhem.com, lists five items she finds indispensable for infant comfort on long-haul flights.

  • A baby carrier, for example Ergo, which allows you to be hands-free and is also useful for jiggling a baby to sleep.
  • A black shawl to drape over airline bassinets to create blackout (be sure to leave a gap for ventilation, though).
  • Baby wipes.
  • A change of clothes for you and your baby.
  • Spare plastic bags to hold items from finished bottles to vomit-soiled clothes.

Air travel is often expensive, with many airlines charging fees for checked baggage, meals and extra legroom. In some instances, travelers with children are able to catch a break on airline fees by qualifying for a reduced fare child’s ticket or even receiving a free ticket for a lap baby.

Infant Travel

Airlines typically offer parents of children under 2 years of age the opportunity to hold the child on their lap. Tickets for lap babies are generally free or require payment of airline fees and taxes only on domestic flights, though a small ticket fee is commonly included on international flights. In addition, some airlines, such as Southwest, give a ticket discount to infants traveling in a FAA-approved child restraint, such as a car seat, while other airlines, such as United offer complementary bassinets for use on international flights with an infant under 6 months of age.

Children on Domestic Flights

Parents of children over the age of 2 are typically required to pay the full adult fare for their kids. Select airlines offer reduced fares for children, such as Southwest, though the discount offers vary by flight. Though a few discounts are available for children flying domestically, most airlines allow a stroller and a car seat to be included in a child’s baggage allowance for no cost.

The ultimate guide to long-haul travel with young children

Experts share their top tips for enjoying family getaways that deliver enjoyment for adults and offspring alike, and for coping with the inevitable incidents

The thought of faraway holidays with children can leave many parents feeling fatigued before the plane has even taken off. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Marianne Rogerson, a mother of two, was determined not to let being a parent curtail her spirit of adventure. Rogerson, who grew up in Hong Kong, has always harboured a passion for adventure travel, trekking up mountains in Peru, white water rafting in Costa Rica and hiking the rainforest in Borneo.

Having children means less of such adrenaline-fuelled fun. “Things have to be a little calmer with toddlers in tow,” Rogerson says – but her wanderlust has not waned. This year, the mumonthemove blogger took her daughter, four, and two-year-old son bamboo rafting in Guilin, southern China, and on a farming and fishing adventure in Hoi An, Vietnam.

Anders Bay Jenson describes his frequent trips around the globe with wife Alexandra and son Anton, five, on the blog threeonthego.com

He and his wife are firm believers that children are an asset to travel. “We refused to believe having a child should prevent us from travelling,” says Jenson. “The way in which we travel has changed. We travel slower but we see much more, and with completely different eyes; also through the eyes of our son.”

Still, for many families, travelling abroad is as much about mishaps as having fun – whether it’s temper tantrums, wetting themselves while asleep on your lap or spilling your red wine on the plane. So these are some of the factors to consider when planning the next family getaway.

Location, location, location

Booking hotels with child-friendly facilities can make life easier, especially for relaxing beach holidays. This also guarantees the presence of other families, so your kids won’t get disapproving looks for splashing in the pool.

The ethos of Intrepid Travel (intrepidtravel.com) is that families can have fun off the beaten track. It offers tailor-made trips for families in Africa, the Middle East, India and the Himalayas that feature a range of activities but build in flexible family time.

Finding a suitable destination is also a top priority: no one wants to drag their children to a city. Safedestinations.com is a great resource, packed full of tips on safe places to visit with the family. Hong Kong ranks 12th safest among 141 countries and territories listed on the website, with Finland, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates taking the top three spots.

Planning and packing

Engaging children in learning about the world can go a long way in pushing their boundaries. Subscribing to tools such as Little Passports (littlepassports.com) will give them an appetite for travel. Australian mumpacktravel.com blogger Evie Farrell and her daughter Emmie, five, gear up for adventures with a countdown on a blackboard, counting off each day until their departure.

Pre-booking a baby cot or rollaway bed at hotels and checking the availability of other amenities, such as a baby bath and steriliser, is recommended. This saves on suitcase space and lugging around excess luggage, says Sotheat Heng of Discover the Mekong, which organises tailor-made trips across Southeast Asia.

Nicola Burke, the author of award-winning family travel blog jetlagandmayhem.com, often packs travel blinds. “I’ve stayed in far too many hotels where rogue windows stream light in and wake my kids up early,” says the mother of two. Portable blackout blinds, such as the Gro Anywhere Blind or SnoozeShade, can be bought for cots, or you can make your own using black bin liners and Sellotape.

To avoid jet lag, adapt to the local schedule as soon as you can, and resist the urge to snooze the day away. Getting out into the daylight will help reset your body clock.
