Creating a Culture of Academic Integrity:
A Toolkit for Secondary Schools

A resource created by The School for Ethical Education

Integrity Works!

Creating a Culture of Academic Integrity: A Tool Kit for Secondary Schools provides school leaders and teachers easy to use tools to support a culture of integrity in the classroom and throughout the school community.

The toolkit includes:

• A research-based approach for how schools can make academic integrity a priority
• Resources and strategies to help teachers reinforce academic integrity in their classrooms
• Activities to help students practice integrity and resist cheating
• Strategies to prevent plagiarism

​”If we don’t want a society of cheaters, schools and parents will have to do much more to deliberately teach integrity to our young. Creating a Culture of Academic Integrity toolkit gives us dozens of practical tools for tackling that crucial task.”

Dr. Thomas Lickona

Founding Director, Center for the 4th and 5th Rs (Respect and Responsibility) at the State University of New York at Cortland

“Research studies note approximately 95% of public high school students participate in some form of academic cheating. School leaders can reverse this trend by creating a culture that encourages ethical citizenship. The Toolkit provides clear strategic steps to help a school reduce lying, stealing and cheating.” – Dr. Arthur Schwartz, Character.org
