Thinking Ethically for Catholic Schools
The student card set is supported by a comprehensive educator’s guide and CD that includes lesson plans and activities that draw on frameworks such as Socratic Circles, de Bono’s Thinking Hats and Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences. There is a bonus section for Catholic teachers with clear presentation of the Catholic perspective and doctrine on controversial moral issues. Each card is also provided in word format on the CD to allow for easy editing.
