This video takes viewers inside an elementary school in Binghamton, NY, that was among the first to systematically integrate character education into its classrooms and throughout the schools. Viewers will observe teachers implementing specific character-infused lessons, including

  • A kindergarten unit on the five senses
  • A third grade lesson on schools-to-careers on the identification and value of talents
  • A fifth grade integrated history and language arts lesson on famous people from ancient history

The video illustrates practical instructional approaches that transform character education from a conceptual framework into a concrete and effective series of learning activities. It also presents elementary teachers reflecting on how the character education initiative has enriched their classrooms as well as the lives of their students.

An excellent staff development tool, Character Education: Application in the Classroom demonstrates strategies that can be easily replicated and will inspire in viewers ideas for how to integrate character education into existing classroom activities and curricula in a way that promotes the development of individual character attributes such as honesty, responsibility and respect, while also fostering a positive and virtuous school culture. The video makes clear that character education does not take away from learning, but rather enhances student performance and raises academic and behavioral standards.
