    Accountants provide an important service to society, and therefore, they have a duty to be ethical. With Due Care (The Role of Ethics in Accounting) describes the importance of ethics to all types of accountants. It focuses on the purpose of ethics in accounting and the benefits that businesses receive from ethical accounting practices. This LAP also explains several key principles that accountants should follow to maintain ethical behavior.

    LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about the role of ethics in accounting, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, ideas (Make it Pay!) for immediate application, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.

    As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guideā€”in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

    Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 22 slides.
