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.
Remind the learners that the definition of integrity is "Knowing and doing what is right." Ask: Can we have one without the other (knowing and doing)? What makes you say that? (Ask three or four students to share their reasons.)
Lesson Developed By:Jan Dalman
Scenario #1: Pete’s mother has agreed to take Pete and five friends to play laser tag on Saturday afternoon. Pete can choose five friends because that is the limit of space in their car. On Thursday, Pete starts inviting the guys he hangs with. He invites Louis, Jose, Matt, and Eric. He’s looking for Brady (the fifth friend) when Glen, a really cool, popular, girls-like-him guy, asks if he can come. Pete would really like to hang with Glen and his group, so, in a quick moment of decision, Pete says, “Sure!” The next person Pete sees is Brady who has already talked with Eric and knows that Pete is going to invite him to the laser-tag event.
