In this "Think Before You Act" lesson, students begin by articulating their values regarding conduct toward others and fashioning their statements into a class “code of ethics.” They next consider reasons why they sometimes stray from their values and participate in hurtful behavior, and generate alternative ways to express their feelings when tempted or pressured to bully. Students also consider the feelings of those who are targeted for bullying, and apply what they have learned through reflection on two bullying scenarios. Aligned to Common Core State Standards: SL.6.1 , SL.7.1, SL.8.1
