That's So Rude:
10 Rules of Common Courtesy
Grades 5-9 / Handouts / Tests
Teacher's Resource Book
This program teaches strategies to reinforce civility and common courtesy in and out of school. Scenarios range from classroom behavior to cyberspace etiquette, use of cell phones, interrupting, wisecracking, inappropriate public behavior and language, courtesy to teachers and respect for people and property.
Students learn how to identify rude behavior and stop it; to interact with teachers and parents to encourage positive, comfortable outcomes. The message that comes across is that treating others with kindness and respect is not only the right thing to do, but also a source of personal power and self-esteem.
