Ethical Leadership Course Package

As Career-Tech programs increasingly reach into the middle schools, this ninth grade leadership course provides a significant opportunity for business and marketing programs to expand their presence in the earlier grades.  We believe the course will encourage students to learn more about business and, ultimately, to enroll in upper division courses as outlined in our program-of-study kits. This course package includes:

  • Course Guide (both the 1- and 2-semester options included)
  • 58 LAP Modules focused on ethics, ethical leadership, and ethics in business hand-picked for use in the Ethical Leadership course
  • 14 additional ethics-related LAPs


The course guide and LAP modules in the Ethical Leadership package are also available individually:  

Tip From Our Expert: Easily Add Ethics Into Your Intro Courses

Not sure where to start? Consider this advice from April Miller, VP of Product Development.

It's easy to add important ethics content into your existing Intro to Business, Intro to Marketing, or Intro to Anything courses. Start with a lesson module (LAP) titled Rules to Live By (LAP-EI-123), which covers the basics of ethics. It begins with this dilemma to get students thinking:

Imagine you’ve been studying nonstop for your midterm tomorrow. You’re still having problems understanding the material, so you stop by your teacher’s room during lunch to ask her a question. She isn’t at her desk, but you spot the answer key to the test sticking out of a pile of books. You don’t know what to do. If you look at the answer key, you’ll be sure to get an A—and if you can copy it down, you’ll be able to help your friends get A's, too. But is that the right thing to do? What you’re dealing with is an ethical dilemma, and it’s up to you to make the right decision. But what are ethics, and what does it mean to be an ethical person? 

If you'd like to add one or two more modules, April suggests these topics: Reasons for Ethical Dilemmas (LAP-EI-124), and Recognizing and Responding to Ethical Dilemmas (LAP-EI-125).
