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!
