In "Virtue Ethics," a Tapestry of Faith program
Teams role play moderate behavior.
Divide the group into teams of three or more. Ask each team to think of a common situation, such as at school, with friends or family, or at a job, where they have witnessed extreme behavior. The role play should include both sides of extreme behavior (over-indulging versus never indulging), and it should also show using moderation.
You might suggest getting tattoos/piercings; exercise; physical appearance/fashion; schoolwork with an eye toward grades. Give teams a few minutes to rehearse. Then re-gather the group and have teams present their role plays.
After the role plays, process:
Display the newsprint and ask everyone to copy the information in their journals or, if you created a handout, pass it out now.
