Covering the same four building blocks as the Act 48 course, these school and system leaders and CTC administrators then teach these materials to a professional learning community within their home LEA.  Case studies are covered as well.  PLC educators teach a model lesson to their students based upon a student code of conduct.  PLCs have continued to meet and discuss ethical issues after our course ended.
