Responsibilty and respect in action
Becoming a role model for another person is a great way to influence good behavior. Look in the electronic edition of the St. Petersburg Times and find a person who is a good role model. You might even find good examples on the comics pages. Make a list of reasons why this individual is a good role model. Next, pretend you are going to interview this person for your school newspaper. Write out six questions that you would ask this person about being a role model. Trade questions with a friend and answer them as you think the role model would. Share your thoughts about the characteristics of a good role model here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
