Since the days of Plato, philosophers and educators have designed Character Education programs.
In Whole Brain Teaching, we have selected Five Virtues appropriate to the modern world: Kindness, Leadership, Courage, Invincible Grit, and Creativity. We chose these virtues for these reasons:
First, they establish a moral foundation for a classroom society.
Second, students can apply these values to life outside school.
Finally, most crucially, we found our set of Five Virtues can be easily translated into entertaining activities … not mere slogans. Kids learn the most when they have the most fun learning. We believe the best way to teach moral behavior is through Character Education games.
This ebook, a 10 week course, describes how our Five Virtues can practiced daily in the classroom. In addition, you’ll find substantial descriptions of how the virtues can be integrated into lessons on writing, reading and math.

The Agreement Bridge is Whole Brain Teaching’s most powerful tool for helping troubled students. Teacher and student work together in a game that teaches, and rewards, collaborative problem solving. Issues that can be addressed in The Agreement Bridge range from the minor, but chronic (homework never completed, unrelenting chattiness) to the major (gang activity, drug abuse). Bonus chapters include descriptions of how the game may be played with a group of students or between peer mentors and their classmates.
