Re: Character ed-feedback on my idea, please

Valuable questions-
We are pushing character- not one specific program though. The traits
are things we talked about the first week during the " class behavior"
discussions. We are ready to get to more in depth things now, but now I
have to have something for this display in the Board room- I thought
this would reinforce the traits I think are important- would give me
something to have hanging on back to school night and in the board room
and then we could get on with more in depth work.
I like to use Haring during the year, and this could be the time to
introduce him, then we could go further- some of my 7/8 gr. already
learned about him when they were in 6th gr. and I want their year now
to include more recent artists and art with a purpose.
