Description of Activity
Participants play a game replicating real-life situations involving ethical decisions.
At the end of the game, ask whether the ethical choices involved rules that disagreed with each other. Were some of the rules unwritten? What were they? Does the group think the solution reached was a reasonable and measured response to the problem?
Including All Participants
If some participants have limited mobility, you might wish to have the group remain seated, or at least give individuals a choice between standing and sitting when they speak.
