We Choose Virtues for youth is a practical lifestyle system. We focus on building character by clarifying expectations through a simple language and personal questions, sparking conversation and building relationships.
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.
