This month’s character topic is CHOICES. In the book Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, J.K. Rowling reminds us of the importance of choices through the character of Dumbledore who tells Harry, “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”
Our choices define who we are, and who we are choosing to become. This month we would like to celebrate the students of character who define themselves through their good choices. Their choices not only define them, but they impact others in a positive way. These students are role models, and we should want to follow where they lead.
In order to acknowledge these students and the good choices that they are making, please post a comment using the following bullet points as your guide:
- NAME any student in 7th grade that you know has made a GOOD CHOICE. (first name, last initial) Remember this blog can be seen anywhere, so be aware of internet safety and do not post the person’s full name.
- IDENTIFY what GOOD CHOICE you witnessed this person making.
- EXPLAIN how it positively defined the person who made the choice.
- Finally, DEFEND how that choice positively impacted you or another person. (How was this person a role model to you – even if they didn’t know it?)
