"Respect-don't know what it means to me." Aretha Franklin could have said the same thing about good citizenship. Many of today's youth don't know what good citizenship means to them. Not enough emphasis is being placed on the role of civility in our modern society. Gone are the days when it was just as important to get good grades in citizenship as it was in the three Rs. Many of the behavior problems that plague our public school systems can be traced back to lack of knowledge about good citizenship. This little book is designed to help refocus our youth on learning and appreciating the value of good citizenship not just in school but also at home and everyplace else. Good Citizenship for Today offers behavioral options and alternative thought processes in a lighthearted, easy-to-understand way. When used with the accompanying incentive program, Good Citizenship for Today can be an effective tool for helping our youth become the good citizens that they deserve to be.
