Character Education, Part I: Community and Cultural Change

Character Education, Part I & II

Course Description

In this 10 unit course, Mr. Taulbert discusses the urgent need for character education in our schools. He is joined by various guest speakers. Teachers, coaches, and corporate leaders discuss techniques to engage parents and community members in promoting ethical behavior by their children and in creating “community” to support moral and character development in schools. Taulbert uses case studies that demonstrate successful character education programs as well as testimonials from guests of their successes in implementing strategies in their own teaching practices. Participants learn to identify character issues in their classrooms and mobilize resources from parents and community members to implement a plan that integrates character education into their core curriculum.
