Introduction & Relevancy
We all want to be respected. We all want to feel good about ourselves ("self-respect"). I think these are Life-Goals of everyone: to be respected. This is true in every aspect of your entire life.
But how do we reach these goals? What can we do to become respected?
Presentation / Student Participation
Hand out the essays,
Read the first essay, down to the Table. "Respect: How to get it."
Read through a few entries in the table. Preface each entry by rereading the column heading. Remind them to checks A, ?, or B. Demo.
Now you finish reading the table the same way. As you read each row, ask yourself if that is something you need to work on! BE HONEST! If you are not honest with yourself, then you have no chance to become better! When you have done that, please turn your papers over.
