Your Place in the Community
Learners identify and explore their own values as well as the values of their family, classroom, school, neighborhood and the community. Learners realize that they are concurrently members of multiple communities that may have competing or conflicting value systems. Learners gain important insights about being respectful of diversity.
Teens identify their roles and personal values, and analyze how their personal values and beliefs developed in connection to their community's values and beliefs. They discuss what decisions they can make through generosity and voice for the common good.
