Today Diane Stirling is conducting another CHARACTERplus Ten Essentials of Character Education professional development session. Participants in this full-day workshop collaborate on consensus-building, integrated lessons, class meetings, and service learning planning. Techniques demonstrated throughout the workshop translate to classrooms, staff meetings, student governments and leadership, PTOs, school boards, and community alliances. This workshop is one of three required for Basic Certification in Character Education. The other two are Character Development & Education with Dr. Marvin Berkowitz and Effective Methods, also with Diane Stirling.
