Business ethics are the basic principles that govern a
business’s actions, but why are they so important? This LAP explains the
concept of business ethics, the importance of ethical behavior for businesses,
and the consequences of unethical business behavior. It also examines the
reasons behind unethical business 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 business ethics, 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 guide—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 17 slides.
"The differences between ethical behavior and legal behavior are very difficult for a high school student to understand. This LAP explains those differences in such a way that all students benefit."
