Abstract

In this session you will learn about the value and viability of character education in elementary schools today through an engaging workshop involving a micro-lesson and lecture. Character education is often defined as the implementation of moral values in schools. My presentation will examine character education as qualities taught in school that will allow students to thrive within themselves, with others, in school, and in life. Research shows that a strong character education program used in schools has been proven to increase academic test scores, decrease bullying, and change the climate of a school in a positive manner. Character qualities have been taught informally in this country, in schools and at home, since the origin of our nation in order to convey skills such as respect, manners, and more. This presentation will be looking into how one can align character education with the Common Core Standards, different ways character education can be implemented in a school, how to effectively create a character education program for your school using a universal assessment, and ultimately how an educator can help promote overall success among all students. By implementing character education effectively into your school, students will be more equipped to thrive in the world in which we live.
