Ethics Module for Students - Case #2

Ethics is not only about doing things right, but also stopping wrong things from happening.

Navigate to and read the following case by clicking on the graphic below and then hit the BACK button to return to this exercise:

Then submit your answers to the following questions in the discussion thread:

Why would you think Kevin decided to engage in plagiarism?

If you were Adam, how would you convince Kevin to write his own paper?

Most of the consequences of plagiarism involve either failing the course or getting expelled.

Do you think these consequences help to reinforce moral and ethical values within students? Why or why not?

If you were Mrs. Adam, would it have made a difference to you if Kevin had written the references on the paper?
