Ethics and the Cat in the Hat

Ethics is one of my favorite concepts from Kaplan's Depth and Complexity to teach. I can see so much progress in my students' thinking and their ability to make an argument for their opinions. Dr. Seuss books are full of good ethical situations to discuss.

We read the Cat in the Hat and at the end of the story the question is posed would you tell your mother about the Cat's visit? My kiddos were pretty split-those who said they wouldn't tell had that opinion because they didn't want to get in trouble. Those who would said it was the right thing to do.
