RE: Character Education & Art History - Jill and All

Jill, Judy and all,
Last year I had the kids make a book - we were doing a virtue each month. This was an ongoing project - we took about 1/2 hr a month. The book pages looked like a pizza with one piece taken away. Each month the students added the current virtue to one of the pie pieces. They chose their own format - how and where the virtue was written, also the type of illustration. As the students began each time, we'd discuss what that virtue looks like - how folks show that virtue, ideas on how to illustrate. Near the end of the year, we had to add a few virtues on the back. We made covers from cardboard pieces (recycled from cereal and cracker boxes) covered with construction paper. I can send more info in the fall - my pattern and pics are up at school. Unfortunately, the older kids - 4th and 5th grade thought this was kind of easy.

        Greetings Jill,
        It is good to see you got back on the list.
        I highly recommend you check into Art Image Publication's Character
        Education Print sets.
        Order the prints - look at the sets and lessons and if you can not use them-
        just make arrangements to return them
        I have tired to get some sample lessons for IAD - but no luck.
        I brought character education into all lessons.... but it would take too
        long to write out all I did . I don't even have it written on my plans that
        are on the site.. I just did it daily with things I said -- and with the
        artists I chose.
        Lessons on Heroes are a good place to start.
        Art Image Publications are easy to find online - they have a sample
        character ed lesson on their site that looks very good.
