Confucius Book of Virtues Assignment

Challenge/Extension Activity: Confucius believed in living a life that followed some basic principles, and he often preached those principles throughout his lessons. Those principles are: wisdom, friendship, integrity, respect, modesty, knowledge, and enthusiasm. You are going to create a “Book of Virtues” based on Confucius’ principles using the template that has been provided for you. On the inside left panel, you will write each of the 7 virtues and a quote from Confucius underneath it. You have the choice to find a Confucius quote that fits each principle (not one from today’s lesson) or you may challenge yourself to write your own quote in Confucius’ style. On the inside right panel, you are going to write about how each of these quotes applies to your life. For example: What does this quote mean to you? When in your life could you apply this quote? Have you ever been in a situation in which this quote would have been useful to you? You are being graded on neatness and effort, so be sure to decorate the book with color and any designs that are applicable to the assignment.

Daoism Extension Activity

Challenge/Extension Activity: The words yin and yang literally mean the “dark side” and the “sunny side” of a hill. In Chinese culture, they represent the opposites of which the world is thought to be composed: dark and light, female and male, Earth and heaven, death and birth. According to this belief, all good things in life have some element of bad, and all bad things have some element of good. Using this philosophy, fill in the yin yang symbol provided in class by following the directions.
