Working Together: Families, Schools and Communities to Develop Children with Morals
MetadataShow full item record
Character education is widely used in Ontario elementary schools (Winton, 2010, p. 220). Most educators are helping their students develop character traits like: respect, responsibility and honesty to name a few. The goal of this project was to investigate character education as it widely exists in various school boards in Ontario, Canada. Specifically, this project examines the implementation of character traits by institutions and organizations such as: elementary schools, families, and communities (stakeholders). Resources relating to each institution/organization that will support the alterations and change to a more authentic character education are highlighted. Lastly, a workshop proposal will be included for leaders who want to initiate, create change, and practice an intentional and structured character education program. An actual design of the workshop in PowerPoint will be included. In summary, the overall goal of this project is to examine how schools, families and communities can contribute cohesively towards educating children to be moral beings.
