The Character Chronicles: The Fairness 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 Fairness Connection: Fairness seems to be one thing that everybody feels entitled to. As soon as children are able to speak they often complain, “No Fair.” With that as a point of departure, Chloe, a thirteen-year-old blogger, guides us through her classroom video blog on the topic of fairness.


Chloe shows us how teens are defining fairness, practicing fairness, and dealing with the pitfalls and obstacles that come up around being fair. We listen in while kids express their own opinions on a case study dealing with academic cheating. Chloe also shows us two documentaries that help demonstrate how young people struggle with the issue of fairness. The first story is about a middle school teen court that has to decide on fair consequences for student misbehavior. The second documentary tells the story of a young student athlete who uses his talent to literally “level the playing field” by setting up a charity to help children less privileged than he is.


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.
