The Hidden Power of Character - Add Power to Teaching

Teaching is taking students from where they are when they enter your class to some higher level of personal growth and achievement they have never experienced. You as a teacher are ahead of your students on the pathway of life and learning. You have the opportunity to develop new abilities and qualities in your students. As you will learn, promoting certain types of development results in improved performance, so the way to improve educational achievement is to better harness the forces that promote this development.

Teaching character helps students develop the social skills needed in the classroom, such as cooperating with and helping others, unifying with others in a common desire to learn, obeying rules, feeling responsible to get homework assignments turned in on time, developing teamwork with others, exercising self-control to avoid distractions, showing better impulse control to improve focus, and many more.

In this course, you will learn methods that very successful teachers have used to develop character with their students, which can be done at the same time they teach any subject. This is possible because the conditions necessary for this development are inherent in the environment of every classroom and available to every teacher.
