After studying Benjamin Franklin's "The Autobiography", we are exploring his 13 listed virtues that he considered necessary for moral perfection. NOW, which one of the thirteen is most important for teenagers today, in today's society and culture? What is missing in teens and in teens' lives? What do teens need more of? WHY? Are teens missing the virtue and it causes problems? The lack of the virtue bring "bad things"? IF it is the most important for teens to practice now, why? How does it make a difference? Hmmmm?
Each student will write a paper discussing the most important virtue to teens today.
The final draft is due Friday, October 17th. Careful! The week is shortened by a day off and two shortened days.
