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!
