Type of Resource: Lesson Plan
A key message to convey to students is that being a good role model is about following your dreams and being a positive influence to others as well. Our society seems to favour people of a certain appearance. We need to accept others for who they are, and understand that role models are persons who present positive characteristics such as kindness. Even young children can begin to form negative views associated with appearance. As children mature, they are exposed to media role models who are famous. This lesson helps children and adolescents discuss the characteristics of role models.
