Description of Idea

To begin the lesson idea, give an example of how you (the teacher) have assisted someone. Ask the students to write down ways they can help someone or have helped someone.

Ask the students if they know what pride is. Brainstorm with the class as to what is needed to develop pride. Define pride for them from the dictionary.

Then tell them that pride for us will stand for

P = Positive attitude

R = Respect

I = Improvement

D = Doing rather than watching

E = Enthusiasm

Explain to them, that in order to find a sense of pride, they must perform activities that incorporate all five concepts. They can give demonstrations.

Example: I helped my mom in the kitchen the other night. It was a positive time spent with her, I gave her the respect she deserves, It improved our relationship. I was doing rather than just watching TV and I was enthusiastic in helping her. I am developing pride.

Assessment Ideas:

Have students write down how they can incorporate pride into their daily lives.
