* Tie these characteristics of integrity in to what a “good leader” looks like.

Classroom Activities

Bell Ringers:

Wednesday (1/19): When you think of integrity, what words come to mind?

Friday: “Integrity is not something you show others. It is how you behave behind their back.” Based on what we talked about on Wednesday, what do you think this means?

Assignments Due

Assignment:

At the core of the FFA is the opportunity for students to develop their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success and make a positive difference in the lives of others. This week we are going to discuss integrity. Part of your assignment (50%) will be our classroom discussion/written responses to work in class. I expect that every student will actively be involved in our conversations about integrity and honesty.

On Friday I will introduce 3 different articles on integrity (Integrity 1, Integrity 2, and Integrity 3). Students will be expected to pick an article that they are interested in and write 1 paragraph (at least 5 sentences) about how they saw the importance of honesty and integrity within the article. They will also write about whether they agreed or disagreed. Remember, at least 5 sentences. This part of the assignment will be worth the remainder of the 50% of the grade for the week and is due by Friday, 1/21.
