Standing up as A CitizenStreaming Video - 2008
Spark class discussion on civic responsibility with this compilation of ABC News segments. Each scenario involves onlookers who-unaware that they are observing actors in staged situations-exhibit a variety of responses, from complacency to outrage. Scenes include flagrant littering at a seaside resort; displays of hypocrisy when the chance to be a Good Samaritan arises; illegal use of a disabled-only spot, even as a truly deserving driver attempts to park there; and another parking-space dispute, this one concerning severe damage to surrounding cars and an offending driver who doesn't care. Viewers will find several opportunities to explore the meaning of good citizenship and the importance of community involvement.
