Overview

Learn to teach character traits to your students





The Organized Teacher's Guide to Building Character, a comprehensive resource that will help you implement character education into your lesson plans. The book features ten plans (one for each month of the school year), each focusing on a different character trait, including Respect and Responsibility, Honesty, Courage, Fairness and Self-Discipline.



Each plan includes ideas that can be adapted into regular curriculum, rather than serving as independent curricula, and each is complete with lesson plans at three different (adaptable) grade levels; reproducible materials like graphic organizers and activity sheets, journal entry pages, storyboards, etc. PDFs of all reproducible materials are contained on a CD-ROM that you can pop into your computer and send to the printer, saving the time of photocopying.



• A multitude of ideas, books, videos, etc, to use with children of different ages.

• Complete lesson plans incorporate easy-to-access materials that a teacher may already have in her classroom or library.



Topics include:

Respect and Responsibility; Loyalty/Friendship; Kindness/Caring; Self-Discipline/Self-Control; Perseverance/Diligence; Honesty; Courage; Fairness; Gratitude and Integrity
