Is copying homework from a friend considered cheating? What about the Internet? The issue of cheating in schools is more prevalent and relevant than ever in today’s culture. Polls show that 80% of high school students admit to having cheated and it is a real hot button among teens. In this program, teens speak out frankly about the reasons they feel the need to cheat. They also raise questions about the definition of cheating and when, if ever, it can be considered acceptable. We then meet ninth graders from a New Jersey high school who are required to participate in a series of ethics courses covering a variety of topics. As we sit in on a cheating and plagiarism workshop, we see them wrestle with typical situations and come up with solutions. The students also discuss the long term effects of cheating and ways that it might be prevented. This program is designed to open classroom discussion and critical thinking about ethical behavior among students in grades 5-12.
