    I teach 8th Humanities. Since this is an elective in our disctrict, I decided on my curriculum. One main component I had was teaching my kids what it means to be a good citizen. I bought "Pay It Forward" from Clean Films and showed it to my kids. If you go to the Pay It Forward website, they have a lot of good ideas as well as some lesson plans.

    I had my kids read some of the Pay It Forward stories, then describe ways people can pay it forward. I had them write an essay about a person they knew, or a famous person, that has paid it forward. Finally, they had to come up with three concrete ways they could pay it forward, and act on at least one of them.
