Your 8th grade students are learning to consider relevant facts, stakeholders, and ethical considerations such as respect for people, harms and benefits, fairness, and responsibility to themselves and their communities as they make ethical decisions. Currently they are working on group projects that require them to consider ethical questions within the contexts of health/medicine, environment/nature, genetics, technology, or reproduction.  They are participating in trips to the American Museum of Natural History, the Sackler Lab, and the Dolan DNA lab to support their learning. They will be presenting their questions to their classmates and guests on December 2, December 5, December 12 and December 13. More details to come!
