Social emotional learning and character education are becoming an essential part of our education system again. As researchers discover how important social skills are to future success, teachers and parents are looking for ways to incorporate character education lessons and social skill activities into education.
While there are a number of paid curriculums out there, teachers and parents often need a quick, and FREE, video, lesson plan, or worksheet to get a character education lesson going. We’ve been crawling the internet, watching hours of videos, downloading worksheets and lesson plans, and are compiling a list of the best character education videos, songs, lesson plans, worksheets, posters, books and more. We’ve launched the Best Character Education Videos list and there are more to come.
