Overview

This book provides an effective, action-oriented way of addressing students' values and character growth.

You will learn the principles that form the integrated approach to character education. Two chapters are devoted to each principle, with a practitioner and a research scholar to offer a balanced view. This book shows what you can do to promote character growth in students and teach them how to know right from wrong. An integrated approach to character education will make all the difference in the way your students think, feel, and act.
