Scholastic News Sticky Situation • March 22, 2010

Khaleel_LgNoCrop



Khaleel is on a debate team. His friend Tania is on an opposing team. The two teams will soon face off. Tania sits next to Khaleel in class, and he realizes that he can see her debate notes. Khaleel knows that cheating is wrong, but the information in her notes could help his team win. What should Khaleel do?

Scroll down to the space provided, and write a paragraph explaining what you think Alexis should do.

Other Scholastic News readers will be posting their thoughts about this week's ethical dilemma, too. So come back to the Sticky Situation blog to discuss their solutions!

he should not help

He shoudn't cheat, Because if he cheats she will eventualy find out when she sees that they both had the same ideas.

Kahleel should tell Tania that he can see her paper so she knows that she was showing him. He shouldn't cheat either.

HE SHOULD NOT LOOK AT HER DEBATE NOTES BECAUSE THIS IS CHEATING AND HE DOESNT KNOW BUT HE ACTUALLY IS HOLDING HIM SELF BACK FROM LEARNING AND THINKING FOR HIS OWN.WHEN HE GOES TO ANOTHER GRADE HE IS NOT GOING TO ALWAYS HAVE SOMEONE TO LOOK AT THEIR WORKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is easy! Don't cheat! it may be tempting to Khaleel, but is he does and at the end his team wins, he would probably feel the guilt that he didn't really earn this. don't ruin it. Just win it truthfully, and listen to your conscience.

Khaleel should only copy a couple of Tania's notes and think of a couple of his own.

Don't cheat because it's wrong and that's his friend....he should at least try to come up with his own idea...and if he gets caught by the teacher he will get in trouble,and he will lose his friend!!!!!!!!!!!

I think he should not cheat and think of his own rules because the girl probably didint like thinking of all thoes ideas but she still did to help so thats what he should do i aslo think if he does cheat that the other teams going to find out and that might ruin there friendship. Another thing is that theres a saying that goes winners never cheat and cheaters never win.

HE CAN NOT CHEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!THAT MEANS HE IS UNSMART BECAUSE CHEATING MEANS YOU DONT KNOW THE ANSWER!!!!!!!!!!!

Khaleel shouldn't cheat because he's being a big cheater. If his friend finds out they won't be friends anymore. So he should think about this and not cheat.

I really think that Khaleel should'nt look at the paper and acquire the information for his team 'cause that would be cheating. Instead, Khaleel should try to find out independent debate team information.

not cheat

he shood not look at it

Khaleel shouldn't cheat. There's is no honor in cheating. They wan't Khaleel's ideas not Tania's idea. This would hurt their freindship. A team isn't worth losing your best freind over. What will happen when they find out Khaleel doesn't know what he's talking about? He could be caught cheating. That isn't the bad part either. If he goes on like this what is his future. Lying, cheating, and living on the street. Don't cheat.

He should never ever copy of of somones paper expecially his friend he should think of his own ideas and dont be a sore loser!

cheating is dumb....dont do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

dont ceat

He shouldn't copy off cuz the answers might be wrong. && cheating is wrong fella. If yuh cheat offa someone else's paper, yuh aint gon be successful in life,. <3 Trust me. (:

I think he shouldn't look at someone else paper they might have the wrong answers and if you cheat you might get cought and when they get in trouble and they will start filling sad.

He should be original and make sure to do his best not the opponents best. Also when they debate they would have the same reasons so he should be honest.

Khaleel should be a faithful friend and not cheat off of Tania.

I think he should not copy,beacuse he doesn't know if her answers are wrong or right.

He should not look at it because he might get caught

i think khaleel should ask any of his group members to help him with the debate but not cheat

TRY NOT TO LOOK AT IT BECOUSE THAT IS SOOO WRONG IF YOU DO THAT AM JUST SAYIN

He should not cheat

he sould not cheat if he wants to do that he sould make his own.

he should change seats or try not to look at her paper

They cant cheat!!!

I thank he should not cheat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

he shouldn't cheat because it is wrong

i think Khaleel should not cheat and do his best!!!

He should not cheat and figur it out buy himself.

I think that he should not cheat

Not cheat.

I think Khaleel should not cheat!!!!!!

he soudnt cheet

dont sheat

Not cheat

KHALEEL SHOULD NOT CHEAT
CHEATING IS FOR BAD PEOPLE
HE SHOULD LOOK AT HIS OWN
PAPER AND THINK ABOUT IT
DO NOT CHEAT!!!!!!!!!!

she should tell the techer

I think he shouldn't cheat

i think that he should tell her the trueth so she couldn't find out at the of the game alsoKHALEEL SHOULD NOT CHEAT!

i think that khaleel should ask her can he get a little help and do the rest on his on

I do not think that Khaleel should cheat because it would be wrong.Also Khaleel would not be a nice friend if he did that.Thats what I think Khaleel should do.

shouldnt cheat

he should not copy off of her paper because the teacher might see them with the same answer and wonder how they got those aswers exactly the same when they r both on diffrent teams.

Khaleel should not cheat,just play fair and square.Tania is his best friend.If she figers out that Khaleel cheated and copyied the debate notes when he was sitting by her,Tania will be really mad that Khaleel cheated,they might not be friends.

dont cheat you should never cheat just think of your own

he should come up with his own answer insted of stealing his friend answers. If he lose they would still be friends no matter what. So he sould just try his best to win the debate. He can get in so much trouble if he get seen by someone.
