Character Education

Curricula and lesson plans are at the heart of the Ethics Center's efforts in middle and high school character education.

In addition, we provide workshops and training for teachers and principals.  Our programs serve a range of students in many settings, including regular and alternative schools, parochial schools, and home schools.

The Center offers both free and subscription-based curricula for middle and high school students. Character Education lesson plans in English Language Arts are mapped to the Common Core State Standards. Science and Social Studies are mapped to the California State Standards.
