In this unit, learners define and practice respect for self, others, and the environment. They create good habits of respect, show respect for different perspectives, and take action to be respectful of self, others, and property.
Learners define respect first for themselves, then as a group, they discuss the meaning of respect in different situations.
In this activity, the learners discuss and illustrate what it means to show respect for their personal identity, values, and emotions.
We all want our schools and other places we gather to feel safe, a place we all can be ourselves. In this lesson, we explore how respecting ourselves and others can promote an inclusive and safe community of belonging.
After learning about the definition of respect toward self and others, we explore the idea of respect for property or the environment.
