CHARACTER COUNTS! is proud to partner with Chris Norton, author of the inspirational best-selling book The Seven Longest Yards, and star of the documentary 7 Yards: The Chris Norton Story. Chris’ incredible journey from paralysis to walking down the aisle at his wedding illustrates important lessons about resilience, responsibility, caring, and many other important character skills. These valuable lessons are enhanced by a new series of curricular resources for middle school and high school students which supplement the film.

About Chris Norton

Each one of us faces adversity, uncertainty, and change. Chris is no exception. After suffering a spinal cord injury while playing college football, Chris was given a 3% chance of ever moving anything below his neck. Despite his tragic accident and facing long odds, Chris found the power to stand and ultimately walk across the stage at his college graduation and down the aisle at his wedding. Chris’ story went viral. Featured on many of the largest media outlets in the world, he has inspired over 400 million people worldwide. He continues to inspire others as a keynote speaker, author, foster and adoptive parent, and as the star of the life-changing documentary, 7 Yards: The Chris Norton Story.

The Chris Norton Story – CHARACTER COUNTS! Curriculum

To accompany the movie 7 Yards: The Chris Norton Story, CHARACTER COUNTS! is providing curricular resources to extend students’ learning beyond the film. The research-based strategies provided in each lesson will help students advance their character skills. The six lessons connect the Six Pillars of Character (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship) to sections of the 7 Yards movie. Additionally, the lessons cover topics like goal achievement, growth mindset, communications strategies, and overcoming adversity. Each of the six student handouts also includes an Optimal Performance Assessment so students can reflect on how well they are demonstrating character skills and what they could do differently in the future. This resource includes a facilitator guide and a student handout for each of the Six Pillars.
