Synopses & Reviews
Compassion, courage, honesty, integrity, loyalty, responsibility, and wisdom are qualities we all admire and desire for our children as well as ourselves. Profiles in Character presents twenty-six inspirational and thoughtful stories illustrating seventeen universally admired virtues. This is a book written for teachers by a teacher. These stories will instruct and inspire students and provide material for _teaching in the affective domain._Since each story can be read in five minutes or less and is accompanied by discussion questions and follow-up activities, the stories can be used as brief devotionals or to occupy a full class period. Each virtue is illustrated by one to three stories and can be implemented from middle school to graduate school as part of students' character education. These classroom-tested stories provide enough material to make a substantial contribution to a character education curriculum.
