My Life 24/7 Contest: Incorporating Character Ed in the Curriculum

MyLifeContest_eBlast_1209_0

I was trained in Character Counts about 5 years ago.  Since then, I have used their materials and website resources to build the advisory program.  In the past year, they have created a new teen-focused spin off of character counts called mylife 24/7.  Currently, they are running a contest that includes ethics, decision making, and character education into any curriculum via blogging or video.  The class needs to come up with a video that has an ethical dimension.  Some suggestions are:

  • random acts of kindness
  • taking care
  • acting up and taking a stand against injustice

The complete instructions and lesson plan can be found here.  Submissions are due February 1st, so there is just about enough time to do this with a small group of kids…I plan on doing this with my advisory this week!
