The Character Chronicles: THE CITIZENSHIP CONNECTION (dvd)
From the 6 volume DVD series THE CHARACTER CHRONICLES
Malik, a thirteen year old middle school student, is presenting his classroom video blog on citizenship as a character virtue. Through a combination of skits, group discussions, commentaries, and short documentaries, Malik’s blog takes us on a quest to find out what makes someone a good citizen, and specifically, what kids can do to be good citizens. In the end, Malik concludes that being a good citizen is mostly about doing our share to make our communities better places to live. And to demonstrate that kids have a significant role to play, he shows us two very inspiring documentaries: one about a twelve year old girl who discovered lead in children’s toys, and one about a teen volunteer group that serves their community in suburban Chicago.
