AbstractThis is a model lesson plan for integrating ethics into a high school level science class. The cases presented during this lesson raise questions about the ethics of sharing test and laboratory results, of manipulating data, of receiving credit for work done by others, of a teacher adjusting a student's grade and of a student taking action to prevent another student from cheating. The same format can be used to raise questions about other real life ethical issues encountered by science students and teachers.
