CHARACTER COUNTS! 5.0 Domain

Each month emphasizes a different one of The Six Pillars of Character (Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship). Each week features a different corresponding trait. This layout provides teachers and families with an organized framework for leading discussions about good character.

Topic of the Week

A different influential person of character, who demonstrates one of the pillars and traits through his or her life commitments or specific actions, is also profiled each week. Included are an original drawing, brief biography (written for teachers and families to review with the student), inspirational quotation, and informational website. This comprehensive character outline helps teachers depict for their students how people have exemplified each pillar and corresponding trait.

Question/Exercise
