What kind of person do you want to be? How can you do the most good and the least harm? Do you treat equals equally and unequals unequally? KidsTek students at North High School are pondering questions like these as they engage with the Better Business Bureau’s LIFT Business Ethics curriculum on their path to earning a certification in Business Ethics.
“Ethics is a really interesting topic to talk about with high schoolers and an important subject for them to learn about,” said Senior Instructor Emily Tow. “Plus, a certification from the BBB is an amazing addition to a high school resume and has helped a lot of my students get jobs in the past.
In this short curriculum, students learn about ethics and gain valuable tools and skills to help them analyze example ethical dilemmas and make ethical decisions in their own lives. The curriculum culminates with individual presentations in which students dive in-depth into ethical case studies and apply their learning.
KidsTek Program Manager Meghan Lang, who teaches the LIFT curriculum is also currently working on adapting the curriculum for the blended learning model used by classes at Florence Crittenton High School as well.
