Even elementary school children can build positive character traits like caring, citizenship, cooperation, courage, fairness, honesty, respect, and responsibility. The true stories, inspiring quotations, thought-provoking dilemmas, and activities in this book help kids grow into capable, moral teens and adults. Previously titled Being Your Best, this award-winning book has a fresh new cover and updated resources.
Some kids stand out. Other people look up to them and want to be like them. Their parents and teachers are proud of them. They make friends easily, and they seem to know the right things to say and do. Would you like to be that kind of person? Maybe you already are, and you're searching for more ways to be the best person you can be. This book can help you discover your own good qualities and make them stronger. These qualities are called positive character traits. When you're a person of good character, people respect you more. And you respect yourself.
Young people need guidance from caring adults to build strong, positive character traits—but they can also build their own. This book by the best-selling author of The Kid’s Guide to Social Action invites children and teens to explore and practice honesty, kindness, empathy, integrity, tolerance, patience, respect, and more. Quotations and background information set the stage. Dilemmas challenge readers to think about, discuss, and debate positive traits. Activities invite them to explore what they stand for at school, at home, and in their communities. True stories profile real kids who exemplify positive traits; resources point the way toward character-building books, organizations, programs, and Web sites.
In elementary schools across the country, teachers are expected to provide at least five minutes of character education each day. This book makes it easy to meet that requirement in a meaningful way. It includes 180 character vignettes—five for each of the 36 weeks in the school year—grouped by trait. Each features kids in real-life situations making decisions that reflect their character. Each is short enough to be read aloud; all can be used as starting points for discussion, to support an existing character education program, or as the basis for an independent program. An excellent tool for the classroom or the character-conscious home.
All young people need a safe, supportive place to ?just talk? with caring peers and an attentive adult. Talk with Teens About What Matters to Them has been tested with thousands of teens in many kids of schools (plus community centers, churches and workshops). Its guided discussions are proven ways to reach out to young people and address their social and emotional needs. Teens gain self-awareness and self-esteem, practice problem solving and goal-setting, feel more in control of their lives and learn that they have much in common with one another. Introductory and background materials help all group leaders, including those with minimal experience, feel prepared and secure in their role. Sessions can be easily customized to best meet the needs of your group. Includes a CD-ROM with all the reproducible handouts from the book.
