BeschreibungCompassion, 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.
