Teaching How to be Good Citizens in Today's Society
I find it very hard to understand how people do not know how to be good citizens - whether it be taking care of themselves, others, or the world around them.
I have posters that I post on the wall above my classroom door that display the different character traits I want my students to exude every single day - no matter if they are in the classroom, in park during recess, at home, on the way home, in gym - EVERYWHERE and ALWAYS!
Citizenship wraps all the different traits into one: Respect, Responsibility, Trustworthiness, Compassion, Diligence, Justice, and Perseverence - these are the main traits that I see our future world leaders needing more of than we see now.
Some, obviously more than others.
