Be Respectful: Motivation for All
Have you ever felt like you were disrespected or your work was discredited? I have but I also have been caught being disrespectful. You never know what someone has sacrificed to care for you or share with you. So, before you’re embarrassed like me, let’s talk about being respectful!
Be Respectful: Motivation for All can be modified for all ages at various developmental stages to provide an inclusive experience. The program includes specific vocabulary outlined in the provided electronic worksheet that will be infused throughout the collaborative learning session.
The objective is to encourage participants to reflect on how they show respectfulness in various situations by using the story of Respectful Lil’ Mac as the focal point of discussion. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to respond to a scenario that encourages them to think about their perception of what it means to be respectful and share their thoughts. At the end of the session, we will review materials and reflect on next steps to becoming a more respectful individual.
