Would you steal a CD from a store?

This is an opener (bell ringer) question that I asked my 8th graders to lead up to a discussion about illegally downloading music. Student response:

Ummmmmm no. Who just uses CD's?

Cd's are on their way to 8 tracks to students.Time to change my example to something more current, but stealing an Ipod is not really parallel to stealing the music.


  1. Michael,
    Great start up question! I do see the disconnect from CD's though. How about, maybe an video game? A student hopefully wouldn't steal a copy of Call of Duty..

    Just a thought.
