Starter # 15: Core Values Reflection
This project (and a lot of junior year Humanities) is about defining who you are and what your core values are and how to take a stand on what you believe. As we go through this Morality and Politics of Justice project, I'll ask you to take a stand on a variety of political issues and explore which core American constitutional values of Security, Liberty and Equality are most important to you and how best to balance the three. In order to do that, you've got to know more generally what your core values are. So, this starter is designed to get you thinking about and defining those values
1. Pair-Share: With your partner, share your core values. Reflect with each other as to why you think those 3-5 are so important to you and how they show up in the way you live your life, treat other people, and expect to be treated.
2. 4 Corners: We should be required by the law to wear seat belts
3. SECURITY, LIBERTY, EQUALITY
As a group decide which of these following 3 statements you most agree with and then come up with a law that proves each statement true (past or present law). Lastly, write your law on the board under the correct column.
4. Read Dr. Martin Luther King's "Letter From a Birmingham Jail"
