Let's watch a video (Citizenship 101) about citizenship, it is like a 1940's newsreel and a bit corny (attempt at humor), but it makes the point. Lets watch:
After watching the video, ask yourself these questions, as they pertain to being a good citizen in your community in and out of school:
- When was the last time you picked up a piece of trash? (Picking up after yourself doesn't count because that is what you are supposed to do.)
- When was the last time you recycled anything?
- When was the last time you participated in community service?
- When was the last time you held the door for somebody?
- When was the last time you helped somebody who was elderly, that wasn't a relative? (What would you want someone to do for your Grandmother or Grandfather???)
- Offer to Help them cross the street
- Offer to help them carry something
- Shovel their walk or take their garbage can out or in without looking for money
- How informed are you about what is going on in your house, school, neighborhood, city, state, and the nation?
- During class do you pay attention or do you zone out? Do you distract (goof around, flirt, talk, use phone, listen to music) others in class or in group work; or do you contribute and set the example?
CLASS WORK: We will review the JROTC class (PPT) on Citizenship and Responsibility.
YOUR HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT: Hold a door open for somebody today / tonight. Or pick up some trash to make an area look better. Do something to help someone out in your community?
