Polite Is Right

Polite Is Right is designed to teach children social skills and encourage the use of considerate behavior. The program focuses the attention of youth on social rules and customs, helps children understand why rules are important, and helps children develop skills and behaviors consistent with these social rules and customs. The lesson titles are: Rules Help Us, Respect, Sportsmanship, Mealtime Manners, Put Your Best Foot Forward, and Electronic Etiquette. Illinois Learning Standards are identified for each lesson. Support pieces include family pages and ideas to catch students being polite. Designed for elementary school children, the program is more successful when the whole school participates.
