Moral Education Unit 2

In moral education today, we started unit 2. It is about staying physically healthy and mentally healthy. I learned that if you want to stay physically healthy, you need to stay clean, exercise, and eat good foods. But to stay mentally healthy, you should try to worry less about your problems and things that are on your hands that you don’t want to mess up. I also have a few questions that I am going to answer in this post. Here they are:

Q: What is your favorite sport? Where and when do you play it? How does it affect your physical health?

A: Soccer.  I play it 3 times a week at a indoor soccer pitch called Koora Dome. It helps me stay fit.

Moral Education Lesson 5 [stereotypes]

In unit 5 of moral education, I learned that a stereotype is a judgement over a specific group of people. Here is an example: ” Girls only like the color pink.” or ” Boys hate playing with barbies.” Stereotypes are basically a  saying that is not always true about something, someone or somewhere. I read a story about a lady who judged a guy who was sitting next to her in an airplane by his look and demanded a new seat. They were in economy class where the cheapest seats were. So, the flight attendant said that there was a vacant seat in first class. The lady thought that it was for her so she picked up her stuff and was about to go when the flight attendant said that the man sitting next to her was in a worse condition since he had burn marks and scars all over him and that he deserved the first class seat more. So the woman raged while the poor man got his well deserved seat. This was a good lesson for the woman who showed in-tolerance. If I was the woman I would have helped the man by giving him bandages and a bit of cash. That was my reflection on moral education today!

How To Respect Others

Respect is an important thing, you need to know how to respect others in a way that makes them feel good. I am going to give a few tips on how to compliment/respect other people:

  1. Make them feel good by saying things that are good about them like ” You have great writing” or ” I always look up to you in ….”
  2. Invite them to “hang out” with you or join his/her game.
  3. Give them advice in certain situations/problems that they are in.
  4. Make them feel like they are important.
  5. Make them your friend.
  6. Always treat them like you want to be treated.

Tolerance Post

If you don’t know what tolerance is, then in this post I will be sharing the meaning of tolerance and in-tolerance and some examples of tolerance and in-tolerance. First of all, tolerance is when you show respect to people no matter how they look or even if they are different. An example of tolerance would be to play with people who have a different skin tone then you to be respectful and caring to somebody who might look odd to you because of a diagnosis they which they have. This is fine. You can be different because of a diagnosis or sickness that you have. It is up to other people to respect you. It is not your fault that you are different, in fact, everybody is different. In-tolerance is the exact opposite of tolerance. It means to judge people by their looks and make fun of them. This may not seem that bad for people who don’t have any diagnosis, but for people who do, this is just like bullying. It is especially annoying when you are being made fun of because of your look behind your back since you don’t know who is making fun of you, where they are making fun of you how they are making fun of you. Nobody wants this. We can stop this though! We just have to show respect and remember that being different is okay. Always be tolerant and never make fun of anyone.

Reflection on moral education lesson 2: compassion, empathy and sympathy.

In Moral Education yesterday, we learned about compassion, empathy and sympathy. I learned that empathy means to put yourself in someone else shoes. Sympathy means to feel bad for someone. And compassion means to do good deeds for someone or be caring to them. I really enjoyed the lesson. I think that these words represent the term of a caring or/and kind hearted person. I feel that I have been in situations that included sympathy the most. I would always feel bad for people who do not have the amazing things that everybody else has but don’t appreciate. Like food, water, homes and most importantly, family. Does anyone disagree with my definition of these three words? Or does anyone feel the same about not appreciating the stuff we have?
