Textbooks? Not Yet-We Must Teach Character First!
Looking for a better way? Well here it is! This book is so practical it is scary. Really! Whether you are a first year teacher, seasoned teacher, an administrator or still in college trying to decide if the education route is for you, this book works. The author gives clearly detailed ideas guiding you through the first days and weeks of school. She provides tables and charts to further articulate ideas about how to make the concepts work. She does not leave anything out. The title may seem a bit unorthodox, but there is a reason for that. Textbooks and information alone do not engage our children in the classroom or in life. When we teach them how to develop their individual and collective sense of character first, they become engaged in learning and never look back. This book is a must read for any organization on the cutting edge of education today.
