Empower Wise Living
Guide your high school students to live wisely. Ethics helps students to grow in virtue and think Christianly so that they can make wise ethical choices and defend the faith from a biblical worldview. Students will learn to compare and contrast various ethical systems, relate biblical wisdom to a variety of ethical situations, and defend biblical Christianity in a culture of competing truth claims and diverse lifestyles.
How We Teach Ethics
Beginning with Reflection and Discussion
Daily lessons begin with insightful discussions and reflections to enable students to review prior knowledge and prepare for new lesson content. Brief writing projects and collaborative research also serve to maximize student interest.
Examining from Multiple Angles
Multiple forms of instruction enable teachers to deliver lesson content in effective ways. Direct instruction, presentation of misconceptions, and classroom discussions help students absorb and process ethical values in impactful ways.
Evaluating Both Character and Circumstances
This course emphasizes a biblical view of common cultural issues and Christlike character development. Multiple case studies, doctrinal dilemmas, and ethical issues will guide students through assessing individuals’ choices along with the pressures of cultural situations.
Assessing on a Personal Level
Students will have multiple opportunities to demonstrate comprehension of lesson content. Applicational exercises, interviews, and Scripture memory verses will enable students to address complicated ethical issues with skillful use of scriptural principles.
The student edition skillfully presents the course content with numerous scenarios for direct application. “Thinking It Through” section reviews, case studies, and chapter reviews will help students review critical concepts and apply those concepts to real life encounters.
