Character Quotations
Activities That Build Character and Community
Tom Lickona & Matt Davidson (Grades 3–8)
From preeminent character education advocates comes a surprisingly simple, yet powerful approach to building good character—through quotations.

One virtue is highlighted for each of 36 weeks. Each virtue-of-the-week includes 5 reproducible quote-of-the-day pages, ideal for making a transparency of the quote or posting it on a bulletin board to share with students. Each week also includes a teacher's guide for the virtue with a kid-friendly definition of the virtue, reflection questions for each quote, action assignments for the week, and a full-page, reproducible illustration of the virtue in action. Includes special chapter on cooperative structures to promote interaction and discussion over the quotations, virtues, and the concept of character.
