Program for Achieving Character Education

This is a nice little program of studies for Character Training:
Program for Achieving Character Education

The topics covered are self-discipline, work, perseverance, faith/trust, compassion, friendship, courage, loyalty, responsibility, honesty.  Under each title there are quotations, poems, etc.. to memorize, definitions, their synonymns and antonmyms, story suggestions to read, mostly taken from The Book of Virtues and The Moral Compass (the reading suggestions are labeled as Kindergarten to Sixth Grade but all my children through High School enjoy the stories. Also, Biblical passages, prayers, stories of the saints and virtues, recommended reading, topics of discussion, various activities in writing, art, music, nature/science, projects and a section on how to practice the particular virtue.

This is available at Emmanuel Books HERE and Adoramus Books HERE.

The Book of Virtues and The Moral Compass both by William Bennett are available at Amazon.... or anywhere.

I assume if you are reading this you have a good Catholic Bible :)
