Teach your students the Beatitudes using the movie Pay It Forward! An excellent social justice movie to watch with your students and then follow up assignment.
This assignment is thought provoking and requires a few weeks to plan and put into action.
Included in this is a rubric for grading purposes.
You will be amazed by what your students come up with and instead of simply discussing the beatitudes, students will bring them to life and hopefully teach others to 'Pay It Forward'.
