This character education mini-lesson is not intended to be a service learning lesson or to meet the K-12 Service-Learning Standards for Quality Practice. The character education units will be most effective when taught in conjunction with a student-designed service project that provides a real world setting in which students can develop and practice good character and leadership skills. For ideas and suggestions for organizing service events go to www.generationon.org.
Teacher Note: Display the group metaphors from the previous lesson on the walls or desktops so students can move around the room, read the papers, and take notes.
Teacher: Raise your hand if you know someone that you really trust. What is your relationship to that person? (Let a few people name parent, neighbor, friend, or teacher without giving a name or telling the story of why.) Today, please keep in mind someone you trust as we look at the metaphors we created in the previous lesson.
