Fall Ethics

Ethics is one of my favorite concepts within Kaplan's Depth and Complexity to teach. Being able to make an argument, to defend an opinion is a life skill. We discuss questions where we can take a side every day. We start with Would You Rather questions, then step up to deeper ones. 

In Texas, it's hard to teach Fall. We still have 98 degree days here. But we do look at a lot of pictures of what fall typically looks like. My question was--is it right or wrong that the leaves fall off the trees? When we do these activities there is no wrong answer-whatever they come up with works as long as they can make an argument for it.
