I got the Freeway Dixieland Rocketship Blues...

Hello all, and thank you for this place where I can ask all my off-the-wall questions that earn me such strange looks in Real Life. I've got a couple today, completely unrelated.

The first- I have a story in which a character (a shapeshifter) is taking an ethics class at a fairly young age (about 9). Of course, I myself have never taken an ethics class, so I really only have the vaguest ideas for what ideas would be broached and how they would be taught to someone of that age. If anyone out there either a) has taken an ethics course in high school or college, and could explain the basics that are taught or provide links that do, or b) any idea of how ethics is taught to children in a specific class, rather than simply being incorporated into generalized teachings as a moral or honor code.

Did that make any sense?

The second- at what hour are meals generally eaten in Britain (say London, if it varies. Or provide examples.) and at what hour would laborers be returning home from work? Do they do shift work, and if so, what hours are the shifts? The aforementioned laborers are likely work in warehouses or on the docks, doing hard physical work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much!

Edit: Thanks to everyone who has responded thus far; I think that the second question is pretty well nailed down at this point. What I really need now are responses to the ethics question. Thank you again!
