[The next day.]
Ms. K spends one minute explaining to students the impact of making a right and wrong decision in yesterday’s situation.She emphasizes the need for safety, honesty, and responsibility as core ethical values but must move on to her lesson or she will now be two days behind in the pacing.
[At Ms. K’s home.] Ms. K reflects on the day, wondering if her one-minute speech about ethics had any impact on her students today.
