Lesson Plan

Attributes of a Civil Society

What makes a society civil? High school freshmen search for examples of justice, kindness, peace, and tolerance in news media and brainstorm how they can promote these attributes in their schools, communities, and world. The well-rounded resource includes directions for a role-play activity, a vocabulary list, and cross-curriculum extensions, all promoting kindness and generosity.
