Activities that Build Character and Community
From preeminent character education advocates comes a surprisingly simple, yet powerful approach to building good character—through quotations. Exploring quotations about specific virtues and character is a wonderful way to share with students the wisdom of the ages and the importance of developing good character. One virtue is highlighted for each of 36 weeks. Each virtue-of-the-week includes 5 reproducible quote-of-the-day pages, ideal for making a transparency of the quote or posting it on a bulletin board to share with students. Each week also includes a teacher’s guide for the virtue with a kid-friendly definition of the virtue, reflection questions for each quote, action assignments for the week, and a full-page, reproducible illustration of the virtue in action. Includes special chapter on cooperative structures to promote interaction and discussion over the quotations, virtues, and the concept of character. Build character with this ready-made character development program!
