"Hoo" do you want to be one day? How will your reputation affect your future? Help your students understand that their reputation is important and how they act influences what others think about them.
This lesson is perfect for upper elementary students and starts off with a pre-assessment question, "How do you want to be remembered?" Students love to share, but few think about their reputation! The lesson uses The Grinch by Dr. Seuss as a connection that our actions create our reputations. Students get actively engaged when they have to guess their given Reputation card from classmates who have to describe their reputation without using a "Hush" word and then decide in the second game if the description on the Power Point is their reputation.
Not only does this lesson address students' reputations, but it also points out that we have online reputations as well. Discussion about how our online activities can stay a long time and affect future goals is a hot topic!
This packet is designed to provide you with everything needed to help students learn the importance of having a positive reputation. No planning required! The lesson can be used in the classroom or for small groups.
