ASCD Manitoba | Summer 2015

Read about MARLs High School Ethic`s Bowl (p44) and the value of teaching ethics.

When asked about how working with ethical dilemmas has impacted her, she responded by saying that ethics “has helped me understand myself in many aspects. I have realized that I can think at much deeper levels than I ever thought was possible for me. This thinking has helped me both see myself differently as well as know myself at a much deeper level.”
– Quiana, grade 10 student and a member of the River East Collegiate Ethics Bowl Team
