Word of the Day: Respect

November 11, 2016

respectrespect

noun re·spect \ri-ˈspekt\

Simple Definition of respect

: a feeling of admiring someone or something that is good, valuable, important, etc.

: a feeling or understanding that someone or something is important, serious, etc., and should be treated in an appropriate way

: a particular way of thinking about or looking at something

Consider playing the song RESPECT by Aretha Franklin. Discuss the meaning of respect. Have students give examples of what respect looks like and sounds like in action. Put students in groups of four and have them create an acrostic poem for the word RESPECT. Encourage students to be creative and to decorate artfully. Share and post in the classroom or hallway.
