Anyone can be role model--a teacher, a parent, a friend, an athlete, a relative, but what characteristics or qualities constitute a good role model?
Lesson plans for teachers that divide the class into teams. Teams are assigned a time period in history to research a positive role model of that period on the Internet. Who was considered ideal in the 1970's? What about the 1960's or earlier? (Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., etc.) Have ideals changed that define a positive role model? If so, what caused the change?
