Character in the Catholic Schools
Character in the Classroom, a Feb. 9 workshop for teachers in the Archdiocese of San Francisco, was the first step in launching a new national curriculum for Catholic Schools developed by Center Director of Character Education Steve Johnson. The project, which will debut a complete middle school language arts curriculum this summer, combines teaching character and literacy.
The new project builds on the Centers Character-Based
Literacy (CBL) Curriculum, which is used in the majority of
California counties and in individual public and private schools
throughout the country. CBL integrates the teaching of ethics
into K-12 classes in language arts, and high school social studies
and science courses.
