Schools exert profound influence on children. Peer groups, counselors, favorite teachers, and coaches all help to shape the belief systems that result in student attitudes and behaviors. Character Education activities that focus on Integrity, Honesty, Courtesy, Respect, Responsibility, Loyalty, Fairness, Caring, and Community will be the focus of this course. These activities will provide the experiences and the dialogue for all students that promote an exchange of ideas, an interaction with role-models, and the analysis and reflection that influence student values, attitudes, and behavior. Emphasis will be placed on implementing, establishing, and maintaining a comprehensive character education program to integrate into your daily curriculum. Educators will create unique lesson ideas to bring back to their individual classroom. This course is appropriate for all educators including Guidance Counselors, Psychologists, Social Workers, ELA, Math, Social Studies, Foreign Language, Science, The Arts, Physical and Special Education, N-12.
