Yesterday in class we began our character unit. Throughout the school year we will meet as a whole group at least once a week in order to work on developing our character.
Someone once told me that many people are hired in this country on the basis of character alone. I figured with all of the time we spend on traditional subjects, a small portion of our time could also be devoted to character building.
Yesterday we started with a definition of character; we determined that character is essentially the ability to do what’s right.
Any thoughts on that definition? How do you see character impacting your life? If you’re a parent what do you see as essential to developing your child’s character?
