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?

    Do you know why we haven’t learned about character in the other classes if you say it is more important than grades? Good character can help your life because you can be trusted by others to do more things instead of having to go with your mom just to go to the grocurey shop every time for only 5 minutes!

    Hey guys!
    Wow, this was great! You posts really generate some good conversation. First off, to all of you who asked if I think I have good character, my answer is yes and no. I think that I would hard to have good character, but I have to remember that I am human so I can’t be perfect all of the time. I think someone up there asked me if I think that I have a good self-image. To you I would say yes. I am very happy with myself. I know and understand my personal strenghts and am a happy person (unless students are messing around!)
    I really liked how some of you folks talked about specific events that character can help with. Tyler and Shannon both made great points that things that you do in life can be made better by good character.
    Well… that is all for me, my cold is still bothering me so I am going to go rest. See you Monday! GO GREEN!!!
