Around Your School – Bonding Students to Staff (Grades 6-8)

Source: Character.org

Unfortunately in our society not every job holds the same prestige and as a result some occupations do not receive as much respect as they deserve. This lesson enables students to see that in every job done well there is honor. students are assigned a staff member (custodian, librarian, nurse, secretary, cafeteria worker, etc) to interview. students generate a list of questions that focus on the job responsibilities, skills necessary to complete the job duties, and some on the employee’s life outside of school. After the interview, students create a presentation about the employee to share with the class. This assignment gives the students and the staff a chance to get to know each other on another level, thus creating a more caring school community.
