You can not just do lesson on character education

The information that I found to be most interesting in this course was the message that you can not just do lesson on character education and bullying and expect students to be prepared to be 21st century dual citizens. Students must experience citizenship and be taught how to reflect and problem solve. I also found the eight essential questions to be the most valuable in preventing and fostering student responsibility. The information I learned will impact my ability to maintain safety, order and rights in my school by making students aware of things such as mean vs. nice, what digital footprints are and how they can affect their future and giving them the resources they need to think critically about their actions and how they impact others.

Whether you are a school administrator, teacher, parent, mentor or corporation, we can design a program to suit your needs. Let’s make the connection!

Getting students to think about actions

Guiding students through group conversations about the Eight Essential Questions really seems to be an excellent way of handling any type of bullying situations going on in your class.

Finding Middle Ground

I need to find a middle ground between what students know (no learning taking place) and what they have to learn.

Reflection from a 4th Grade Teacher in Alabama

Using this program has given me opportunities to ask specific questions to my students to understand their personalities and home lives better.

A First-Year Teacher’s Obstacles

As a first year teacher there are many obstacles that you do not realize you will face when it comes time to leading your own classroom.

There is a huge discrepancy between what students thing and what teachers think

While adults may believe they are doing enough, students do not think we are.

An absolute joy!

It was so inspiring to watch you all doing what you are passionate about. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
