CHARACTER In our large group advisory, we have been reflecting upon the question: WHO ARE YOU? Each day we have the power to choose our words and actions that DEFINE who we are to those around us. How are you defining yourself to others? What will your LEGACY be at TJHS? Let's explore these ideas further by learning from the example of others.... In the following video clip from Akeelah and the Bee, consider how Akeelah defines herself to the teacher. What words would you use to describe Akeelah? What does she say or do to lead you to believe this about her? In the next video clip from Facing the Giants, consider how Brock defines himself to his coach and teammates. http://www.wingclips.com/movie-clips/facing-the-giants/death-crawl http://www.wingclips.com/movie-clips/akeelah-and-the-bee/words-change-the-world How would you describe Brock? What words or actions lead you to this conclusion? Would you want him as a teammate? Why or why not? In the next clip from The Ron Clark Story, consider how Shameika defines herself to her teacher and her classmates. http://www.wingclips.com/movie-clips/the-ron-clark-story/cutting-in-line?play=1 What is your opinion of Shameika? What words or actions cause you to define her this way? Did your opinion of Shameika change during the clip?
Why or why not?
Would you want
her as a classmate?
Why or why not? http://www.wingclips.com/movie-clips/stepmom/there-for-each-other?play=1 In the following clip from Stepmom, how does Anna choose to respond to her father's marriage announcement? In the beginning of the clip, how does Anna define herself to her family? How did her choice to react influence her younger brother, Ben? Did your opinion of Anna change during the clip? Why or why not? http://www.wingclips.com/movie-clips/rudy/what-i-can-and-cant-do Watch the next clip from Rudy and reflect upon Rudy's attitude and
actions towards other's disbelief
in his ability to get into the college
of Notre Dame. Many people close to Rudy doubted his ability to get into Notre Dame. How does Rudy choose to respond? Do you think this response was easy or hard for him? As a result, how would you define him? http://www.wingclips.com/movie-clips/heart-of-a-soul-surfer/not-perfect In the final clip from Soul Surfer, how does Bethany choose to define herself despite the loss of her arm from a shark bite? What is Bethany's response to the loss of her arm? Do you think this response was easy or hard for her? Why or why not? How would you "define" Bethany? What is your definition based upon? What is
character? Without mentioning names, consider some of the "positive" classmates around you. What words or actions have you observed in these classmates to characterize them as being "postive"? What can a student at TJHS choose to say and do to begin to postively define himself or herself? What are the "benefits" of defining yourself this way? Questions for personal reflection:
Who are you now?
Who do you want to be?
What will be your legacy at TJHS?
