To stop vandalism and destruction, and encourage school beautification, the class will create 1-minute skit presentations showing various instances of the actions taking place, and record them using a video camera. These videos will then be put onto CDs and distributed to other classrooms so other students can be made aware and encouraged to stop their negative behavior. They also plan to start "junior janitors" to have students make sure their peers are not littering or wasting food at lunchtime. To promote kind behavior and "the golden rule," they will make posters around the school with positive messages.
