What do people around you think is important in their lives? What's important to you in your life? These are questions we'll be asking this term.
For example, how much do people value having POWER over others, being WEALTHY or FAMOUS? What about TEAMWORK, GENEROSITY or FAIRNESS? Sometimes what people say they value seems to be different from how they really act.
We might call some men and women heroes or leaders because they show outstanding values (even when life might be very difficult for them). If you're a parent who could share with the class a life story of a person you consider to be a hero then I'd like to hear from you.
What made them a hero? What outstanding value did they demonstrate? Perhaps it was COURAGE or INTELLIGENCE or FAITH. Contact me either in person or through this website so that we can arrange a half hour talk. -mjp.
