Social ethics topic chosen
The class has decided that the social ethics topic is to be same-sex marriage. You may have heard the news that the same-sex marriage Bill is going to parliament today and will be debated over coming months. Now that we have decided on this topic for our Forum I suggest that you should be reading everything you can find on the topic. Maybe tomorrow, considering we do not have class you can research the topic so that you come to class next Monday with a bit of an idea as I get you to meet for the first time in your political groups.
The groups are:
Sam, Dion, Kira, Brooklyn, Matt, Tayla, Nikol and Hass (8)
Moderates (name please)
George, Amina, Sandra, Krystal, Josh (5)
Conservatives ( )
Abdul, Jacky, Lauriane, Maria, Sang, Narad and Osman (7)
You will notice we have a 'hung parliament'. The Moderates need to discuss which side they will support ...or splinter as a group!
Attached is the assignment sheet for the Ethics Forum on Same-sex marriage

What is marriage?
What is a civil union?
Here is some more listening and reading for you to start looking at the issue:
