The Character Chronicles: The Citizenship Connection DVD


Product Description

|Grades 4-8|  Bring character education alive for upper elementary and middle school students. Presented from the point of view of a middle school video blogger, this DVD explores The Six Pillars of Character through the thoughts and personal experiences of young people throughout the U.S, and contains a variety of entertaining and provocative elements including inspiring documentaries, humorous vignettes, and insightful teen discussions. 


The Citizenship Connection: Malik, a thirteen year old middle school student, is presenting his classroom video blog on citizenship as a character virtue. Through a combination of skits, group discussions, commentaries, and short documentaries, Malik’s blog takes us on a quest to find out what makes someone a good citizen, and specifically, what kids can do to be good citizens. In the end, Malik concludes that being a good citizen is mostly about doing our share to make our communities better places to live. And to demonstrate that kids have a significant role to play, he shows us two very inspiring documentaries: one about a twelve year old girl who discovered lead in children’s toys, and one about a teen volunteer group that serves their community in suburban Chicago.


Approximately 25 minutes in length. Includes a printable teaching guide on the DVD, providing discussion questions, writing assignments, and follow-up activities that support the lesson. Close captioned.
