If you've ever wanted to UPGRADE We Choose Virtues for your teens and tweens, this is your opportunity!
This system provides teachers with a simple classroom management tool so they can be the hero, the LIFE COACH, they've always wanted to be for their students…and yes, they even enjoy the process!
We Choose Virtues is a practical lifestyle system. We focus on clarifying expectations through a simple language and personal questions, sparking conversation and growth.
Tweens and teens love the cards, the colors and the characters, parents love the conversations! The teaching method of asking insightful questions will guide students as they DEFINE and research the Virtue, DISCERN how the Virtue affects the people around them, DREAM about how the Virtue could change their future, and DETECT ways the Virtue can be activated in their life today.
Their answers will be collected in a printable Youth Journal and their progress charted on the Youth Character Assessment. Included is a lesson plan for home, classroom and for students doing independent study in either faith-based or secular options.
How to use this tool:
- A parent can facilitate this program, or a student can work through the program independently. There are instructions for each scenario.
- With only seconds of prep time, and only 10 minutes of discussing Virtues each day, you will be surprised how fast your students will learn to choose and use Virtue!
- Simply choose one card to work on each week. The order you teach them in is flexible.
- When you have finished with each card, start over again. Each time students go through the questions, they will be at a new place in their life, so you can go through them often, a few each day.
