Everyday citizenship

@TheRayCenter #CharacterCounts

Citizenship can be one of the more difficult Pillars of Character to define and teach. But, we can all demonstrate good citizenship every day by the way we treat people and take care of one another. Click here to watch a video featuring students provide a great example of citizenship. At the conclusion of the video, ask students:

  1. What examples of citizenship did you see in the video?
  2. Why are those examples of good citizenship?
  3. What was the impact of being a good citizen? Who was helped? How were they helped?
  4. Citizenship is about taking action to make the world a better place for others. What could you do (as a students, as a class, as a group) to show good citizenship? What impact can you have?

Explaining citizenship to students can be challenging but providing your students with real life examples can help them understand this key component to good character!
