ASCD 2011 Character is Foundational

For a second year, I presented on the concept of character education at the national conference of the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD).  This year we had a better time slot and an interested crowd of public school teachers and administrators – leaders all.  The thrust of our argument this year was that you can create classroom lesson plans that engage and foster the learning dispositions (aka intellectual character) that prepare students for school and life.  We can enact character in our students rather than merely study character is others.  Check out the PDF format of our power point.
