Behavior is based on
Students will identify principles that they value and compare those with the valued principles of other students.
20 - 30 minutes.
For this exercise, it is important for the teacher to be a neutral facilitator and recorder, allowing the class to discuss the rank ordering.
Before beginning, the teacher should lead a discussion of WHAT "principles" are, to be sure students understand the concept.
Draw a hand. Label the fingers on the hand to represent five principles that you are prepared to stand by. Compare your hand with others in the class. List the principles on the board. Rank order them by class vote, if you wish.
