Schools are now being asked to teach values, as well as academics — to make students better people, as well as smarter ones. This challenging section explores the key values of respect, responsibility, caring, honesty, self-discipline, courage, love, truthfulness and fairness — and shows how they can be learned through different subject areas. This tab could easily be broken up and run as an in-paper series. Not available in Michigan.

Sample Newspaper Activity
Look through the paper for a story that involves math in a newsworthy way. It could be the decision of the mayor not to spend on a neighborhood park. Or a sports team owner not signing an expensive free agent. How do the decisions of the newsmaker show courage? Would you show the same kind of courage?

Sponsor Suggestion
Civic or neighborhood groups, teacher unions or associations, political leaders or parties, colleges and universities, sports teams.
