Dr. Thomas Lickona Developmental psychologist and Professor of Education at the State University of New York at Cortland “Character education doesn't wait for something to go wrong before teaching what is right. It's proactive, intentional, and systematic. It teaches students core virtues, such as respect and responsibility.”

T1Wk 3: Respect In the Classroom Last week I spoke to you about respect for school. Let’s recap the 3 main points. We learn not to break the school rules, and if we break them, we have to face the consequences. We must show Respect for the student leaders. We must respect school property by not damaging it.
UPPER PRIMARY Scene 1 (Role Play) Teacher asks the pupils to submit their homework,and one pupil says “I forgot”. Teacher scolds the pupil and he makes a face. Teacher: Do you think it is okay to forget? Pupil: No, it is not okay. Teacher: Why do you think it is not okay? Pupil: If we continue to do this, we will develop it into a bad habit. Teacher: I also noticed that you made a face at me just now. How do you think that will make me feel? Pupil: Oh. I think you will not feel good because I was not showing you respect.
LOWER PRIMARY Scene 1 (Role Play) Teacher asks the pupils to submit their homework,and one pupil says “I forgot”. Teacher: Do you think it is okay to forget? Pupil: No, it is not okay. Teacher: Why do you think it is not okay? Pupil: If we continue to do this, we will develop it into a bad habit.
LESSON PLAN • Pre-activity: • Ask pupils what they have learnt about respect through value moments • Get pupils to discuss school rules and roles of school prefects • Get pupils to predict the story based on the title • Core-activity: • Get pupils to read the story in their Lifeskill book • Get pupils to act the parts or divide pupils into groups to read the parts • Discussion • Elicit responses from pupils for all the questions (Write their responses on the whiteboard) • Post-activity: • Go through the reflection questions with the pupils • Check their understanding of the questions • Get pupils to reflect and share
EXAMPLE OF LIFESKILLS’ LESSON Respect for School Lesson 2: Pedro Enjoys School
OBJECTIVES At the end of the lesson, pupils will be able to understand the importance of school rules, know the consequences for breaking school rules, show respect to the community in the school by greeting and helping them, and respect school property.
Pedro Enjoys School Pedro loved school very much. After one week of school, he had gotten used to the routines and freedom given to him. He loved running along the corridor. He was told off by the prefect a few times to stop running along the corridor. After that, he became smarter. Whenever he saw a prefect while running along the corridor, he would quickly stop.
Once a teacher stopped him for not greeting her while he was walking along the corridor. He smiled and walked away. Another time, he was stopped by the Discipline Mistress (DM) for not greeting her. Pedro loved the space he had in the school. Unlike home, he was not allowed to do many things. He loved drawing, but his Mum would stop him from it. One day, a prefect caught him drawing a picture of an aeroplane on the wall. He was scolded for vandalising school property. Written by: Yi Kai & Kelvin Chew, Primary 5 Faith 2013
REFLECTION Why do you think Pedro was stopped by the prefect? Why do you think Pedro should greet his teacher? Why do you think Pedro should not vandalise school property? How can you help Pedro as a friend?
