senior patrol leader of misconstruing his words, which might make the SPL angry. Or he could compound the lie, which would just delay the inevitable exposure of his dishonesty. Although he possibly could learn enough canoeing techniques to fake his way through a dry-land demonstration, he would surely expose his lie on the trip—unless, of course, he made up an excuse for not participating. To explore Raymar’s dilemma,


begin by asking the Scouts these questions: fDid Raymar tell a lie, a half-truth, or just less than the whole truth? Does the difference matter?


fWhy do you think he lied about his canoeing experience?


fHow did his need to make friends lead him into telling lies?


fWas he wrong to lie? Why or why not?


fIf he ended up teaching canoeing skills without knowing anything about canoeing, someone could get hurt. Does that make any dif- ference? Would it have been better if he had lied about something less important?


fHow could he have avoided telling a lie in the first place? Next, ask the Scouts to identify all the actions Raymar could take to solve his dilemma. Be sure they include the three options above. Then ask: fWhat might happen next if he took each action?


fWhat might be the best possible result of each action?


fWhat might be the worst possible result of each action?


fHow does each action square with the Scout Law?
