Activities
Respect and Manners at School and Work
involves constant student participation, which effectively
reinforces learning. The class meets weekly during the school
day and often begins with a video that stimulates discussion.

Each week's activities focus on a new topic: respectful
behavior, conflict resolution, sports protocol, etiquette, and
more. Every activity is designed to help students:
act confidently and appropriately in a variety of social
situations.
understand the benefits of self-respect and respectful
behavior.
raise their expectations of personal success.
create a positive, encouraging learning atmosphere.

In addition to the video and discussion, activities include:
writing about other students' respectful behavior.
journaling about their own opportunities to show
respect.
meeting and talking with role models who have
overcome hardships and achieved success.
attending a luncheon to practice manners learned in the
classroom.
