About this title


The moral failures that made the headlines over the past decade did not take place because the guilty parties did not know the right thing to do, or because they did not know how to do the right thing. Too many ethical lapses took place, and take place, because someone just did not feel like acting for the common good. What helps kids feel like doing the right thing? Breaking into the Heart of Character outlines a compelling case with documented strategies that get past character talk and improve character action. Compiling evidence-based practices, this book focuses on educators' ability to catalyze internal motivation, and promote social growth and moral climates. The practices outlined in this book can be implemented by every teacher, in every class, every day.
