The Character Chronicles: THE FAIRNESS CONNECTION (dvd)
From the 6 volume DVD series, THE CHARACTER CHRONICLES
Fairness seems to be one thing that everybody feels entitled to. As soon as children are able to speak they often complain, “No Fair.” With that as a point of departure, Chloe, a thirteen-year-old blogger, guides us through her classroom video blog on the topic of fairness.
Chloe shows us how teens are defining fairness, practicing fairness, and dealing with the pitfalls and obstacles that come up around being fair. We listen in while kids express their own opinions on a case study dealing with academic cheating. Chloe also shows us two documentaries that help demonstrate how young people struggle with the issue of fairness. The first story is about a middle school teen court that has to decide on fair consequences for student misbehavior. The second documentary tells the story of a young student athlete who uses his talent to literally “level the playing field” by setting up a charity to help children less privileged than he is.
