What Makes Good Character?

Encourage positive character traits with a lesson that focuses on responsibility, fairness, caring, trustworthiness, citizenship, and respect. Following a discussion about each trait, scholars work collaboratively to create an informative poster that showcases one of the six words and explains its definition. Groups share their finished products with their peers. Independently, participants respond in writing to scenarios on a worksheet.
