Honesty is the Best Policy

Students will be required to brainstorm the meaning of the word “lying” and will discuss situational problem associated with lying. The students will survey themselves and determine if they feel as though they are honest people. Students will respond to honesty questions as a whole group and work in small groups to examine scenarios in order to explain the main conflict and how honesty can be used to solve problems. The goal of this lesson is to have the students reflect upon the importance of honesty and the consequences of lying. The students should be encouraged to speak freely to promote social interactions within the classroom.
