What Do You Think of These Citizens?
"It is not always the same thing to be a good person and a good citizen."
Aristotle, 4th century B.C.
We have examined what citizenship is, the values and attitudes that contribute to responsible citizenship, and the importance of communication skills in dealing with community issues. Now, let's see what you have learned and practiced!
You will be able to evaluate the citizenship qualities of many people in this section. Many of these people have been selected not only because of how well–known they are but also, because their brief biographies demonstrate many issues that we are exposed to as citizens.
After completing the activities in this section, we hope you will approach the difficult issues your society will face as a responsible citizen.
See how well you do with the Word Play.
