1. Explore the Alternatives: Say no. Say yes. Tell the teacher.

1.1. Consider the Consequences Say no: They would probably get mad, but they might understand. They would most likely get a bad grade (because they probably wanted to cheat because they weren't prepared for the test). They would probably study really hard for the next test. Risky Level: 4 out of 10 How it would affect my future: My friend might want to stop being friends with me. How would it affect others: My friend might be mad at me. Say yes: They would probably love me forever and be my best friend. They would then rely on me and not study for any other tests because they would expect that they can copy off of me all of the other times. They would probably get a good grade because I always study. Risky Level : 7 out of 10 How it would affect my future: I would live with the guilt for a long time. The teacher and my parents would get mad if we got caught. How would it affect others: My friend wouldn't learn anything because she wouldn't study for the rest of the tests for the rest of the year. Tell the teacher: They would probably hate me forever because the teacher would probably get mad and call their parents and they would get in trouble. Risky Level: 9 out of 10 How it would affect my future: I would feel bad for getting them in trouble. The teacher would probably hate them forever. How would it affect others: The teacher would not like my friend. My friend would get in trouble from their parents.

1.1.1. Identify Your Values: Honestly Loyalty Long term goals: I want to make sure that throughout my life, I surrounded myself with good people. Family and culture beliefs: Honesty Loyalty My self-respect: I respect myself when I am fair, sweet and fun.

1.1.1.1. I think the best choice for me is to say no. I will not let my friend cheat of of me because I value honesty and fairness. I would not tell the teacher because I also value loyalty and I would feel bad getting my friend in trouble and I do not think that it’s a big enough deal for that because this is the first time they have asked.

1.1.1.1.1. So I told my friend no, and she was upset for a few minutes, but in the end she understood. She apologized for putting me in a tough decision that I had to make on the spot 2 minutes before math class and she agreed with my decision. This has affected me because now it has brought my friend and I closer to each other because now I feel like I know her better than I did before and I know that she will never want to even think about cheating ever again. I learned that as long as make decisions based off of my values and long term goals in life, I will almost always make decisions I am proud of and happy about. This has affected my friend becasue it let her know that I won't do something that is wrong just because she asked me to and I don't give into peer pressure. It also will make her study for the rest of the tests she has throughout life because she won't expect anyone to let her copy them. I am proud of the decision I have made and would make the same decision if this situation happened again in the future.
