"An attitude of respect is, most generally, a relation between a subject and an object in which the subject responds to the object from a certain perspective in some appropriate way. Respect necessarily has an object: respect is always directed toward, paid to, felt about, shown for some object" (Dillon, 2010).
Hard to respect others if you don’t respect yourself
-Ancient Greeks-Plato, Aristotle
-Piaget & Kohlberg also delved into this
-central concept in many ethical theories
-Immanuel Kant-"all and only persons (i.e., rational autonomous agents) and the moral law they autonomously legislate are appropriate objects of
the morally most significant attitude of respect." (Dillon, 2010)
“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
“Let every man be respected as an individual and no man idolized.”
by Tiara Griffin
“All lives have an equal value.” (Gates, M.)
“Humanity’s greatest advances are not in its discoveries, but in how those discoveries are applied to reduce inequity.” (Gates, B.)
"Let everyone regulate his conduct . . . by the golden rule of doing to others as in similar circumstances we would have them do to us, and the path of duty will be clear before him."

Teachers who are stressed, unhappy, and unsupported by their peers are more inclined to treat their students with disrespect.” (Beaudoin, 2011)
-One way is to ask students what they think respect means (Zongkui & Hsueh, 2005)
-It must be developmentally appropriately based to foster the development of the two different types of respect from unilateral to mutual
-One way is to use videos to reinforce terms
Respect should be included in the curricula, instructional design, assessments for all ages, and modeled all the time, in and out of the classroom, with students, co-workers and parents
"The classroom can be viewed as a community, composed of shared and exchanged values, whose focus is to nurture the cognitive and social abilities of the child. It is precisely in this type of social environment where mutual respect can be fostered" (Audlley-Piotrowski, Hsueh, & Cohen, 2008, p. 3-4).
