The SCDSB’s 10 values are a key part of our commitment to character education. We refer to our values as our character attributes. Each month our schools recognize and celebrate a different attribute. This month on the blog, we are highlighting ‘cooperation’.
Cooperation: We work together towards shared goals and purposes
Some examples of how we can be cooperative are:
- listening to others
- sharing with others
- taking turns when more than one person wants something
- compromise when there is a conflict
- be supportive of other people’s ideas
Some ways that students in our schools learn about and develop cooperation include:
- using newspaper or magazine articles to find examples of individuals working together towards a common goal
- after reading a recent book, have students discuss or write about examples of cooperative effort. Are there any places in the book where cooperation might have made a difference?
