Character education, teaching effective lessons to build the classroom community K-six

Project (M.A., Education (Curriculum and Instruction)) -- California State University, Sacramento, 2011.

This project addressed the problem of creating Character Education curriculum for K-Six which enables educators to implement Character Education lessons in their classrooms in an effective and engaging manner. The literature revealed a variety of strategies and factors that lead to successful Character Education lessons and programs in individual classrooms as well as entire schools. The practices and theories that developed from the literature, apprised the body of this research, and led to the creation of an instructional handbook for teachers. This handbook shares model lesson plans for educators, which incorporate research on the six pillars of character, research based strategies and effective classroom practices which include various lesson delivery methods. Teacher resources are included in this handbook that allows easy implementation of the lesson plans, incorporating both literature and web-related resources. The research based strategies as well as classroom practices served as the foundation of the handbook. Specifically, the handbook provides essential research on the six pillars of character, model lesson plans on teaching each of the character traits, and teacher resources for effective implementation and development of further Character Education lesson plans.
