This program shows how treating people with respect helps us get along with each other, avoid and resolve conflicts, and create a positive social climate. We see that respectful behavior means treating others with civility and courtesy, accepting personal differences, listening to what others have to say, and refraining from ridiculing, embarrassing or hurting others. And to demonstrate that each of us has a role in creating a respectful climate, we see an inspiring documentary about a biracial teenager’s initiative to promote interracial respect.
ABOUT THE VIDEO SERIES:
The In Search of Character series focuses on the ten virtues most commonly named by parents, educators, and community groups concerned with character education. While each of these words evokes its own meaning, what counts most, like colors on a canvas, is the way they interact to paint a complete picture. In Search of Character is not about teaching individual virtues, it’s about helping young people construct a vision of themselves as good people and then live up to that vision. It’s about showing them that, in a world where poor character is so commonplace, they can choose to be better than that.
Each volume is approximately 25min in length and includes a printable teaching guide filled with discussion questions, group activities, and writing assignments that further support the lesson.
