We considered the knowledge and skills that are required for information morals education at high schools in Japan. Clearly its knowledge and skills are critical for high school students. We demonstrate the problems with the teaching material of information morals in Japan. Teaching materials are needed to help students cope with the problems caused by utilizing the knowledge and the skills of the information society to provide a more general way of thinking that can apply other examples and a positive attitude toward the information society. We proposed teaching material based on the goal-based scenario theory. From our practice results that used teaching material whose subject was spam e-mail, we achieved the learning goals of the teaching material.
