Product Description
This worksheet helps students gain a better understanding of each of the 13 virtues Ben Franklin advocates for in his Autobiography.

The first page explains the difference between denotation and connotation. The students then have to determine whether or not the synonyms provided for each virtue have a positive or negative connotation.

The second page allows students to make connections to the virtues. Six of the virtues are listed (one is done as an example) and the students are asked to define each virtue in their own words and then make a connection to it. They also identify their connection as a Text-to-Self, Text-to-Text, or Text-to-World connection. I required my students to make at least one connection of each type. We shared these aloud afterwards.
