A quality education is one in which students learn not just academic skills but social and emotional ones, as well. There is much teachers and parents can do to facilitate social and emotional learning and help children build character. The six-page (trifold) laminated guide, Character Matters: In Classrooms, At School, At Home, by Edward DeRoche, presents an overview of character education and outlines specific things teachers and parents can do to promote character development. 

Teachers will learn ways to integrate character education into classroom activities and lesson plans through strategies such as 

  • Moral conversation
  • Lessons from literature
  • Analysis of current events
  • Service learning
  • Reading and writing exercises
Character Matters also reminds adults to model good character and set a positive example, and suggests ways teachers can involve parents in developing positive character traits in their children, such as honesty and citizenship. 

This concise guide offers innumerable benefits. Character education not only helps students at the individual, interpersonal level, but also at the classroom/school level by fostering an environment of respect and empathy that promotes academic achievement.
