According to CHARACTER COUNTS! founder, Michael Josephson, “The Way to Go workbooks are the most effective curricula resource we’ve ever developed. It provides teachers with an easy way to enhance academic development while promoting character traits and life skills on a weekly basis.”
The lessons not only promote the six pillars of character (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship) and the six success skills (learning, self-discipline, diligence, positivity, perseverance and resilience), that also provide writing and discussion opportunities to enhance critical thinking and other academic skills).
Teachers in any class and every grade can integrate a 10-12 minute lesson incorporating compelling images, quotations and thought-provoking short writing and discussion activities that focus on each of the three core domains of student development: academic, social/emotional and character (all lessons are keyed to the Model Standards of Academic, Social, Emotional and Character Development). Each classroom packet of 30 (only $99 per class) or 100 (only $299) workbooks include an Instructor’s Manual and links to extension activities as well as a specific strategy to engage parents. Some schools encourage parents to use the booklets for dinner-time discussions.
The Elementary and Middle School Versions each contain 120 lessons (3 per week).
