Unit: What Respect Means to Me
Learners use a decision-making model to identify the issues they feel most concerned about. With those in mind, they explore how perseverance and doing their personal best are more effective ways to address needs than looking at the short term.
In this activity, the learners get character snapshots of several different real-life heroes and look for patterns and lessons they can take away.
Learners define caring through discussion of examples and writing an acrostic.
Learners get inspiration from the work and words of Mother Teresa about performing small acts of kindness. They make a plan for carrying out a small act of kindness.
In this lesson, we learn that small actions do matter to the common good. While Mother Teresa is an amazing example of generosity, selflessness, and caring, we don't need to give up everything and make grand gestures to be caring.
