This video for children in elementary school contains 3 distinct segments exploring the following character-education topics:
Comes with 35-page Lesson Plan on CD containing discussion points, activities, a glossary, and more. (20 min.)
An excellent teaching tool that presents crucial life lessons in a creative, practical way, the six-volume series Connecting with Kids treats character attributes as skills that can be acquired and practiced much like any other ability. Each volume features three segments, each exploring a different character quality that is defined in sound bites from various race- and age-diverse children, and then illustrated through a true-life profile.
In the title “Perseverance/Responsibility/Tolerance,” for example, tolerance is memorably demonstrated in the friendship of Cory, who is white, and Jason, who is black—kids who are not only honest and articulate, but have a “cool” factor that makes their story readily accessible to the target audience. Great interview subjects, creative edits, and a simple but effective structure will help this very-easy-to-swallow child guidance “medicine” go down…Highly recommended.
