The Virtues Project

Take a look at this and share if you’re willing.

https://www.virtuesproject.com/It’s a program dedicated to helping children and youth find and affirm goodness in themselves and each other. I’ve used it in a classroom setting, and I’m currently using it with one tutoring student. Although the complete list of virtues is too nuanced for my audience, I select some of the more “major” ones and we discuss those.

I copy the text onto a page that includes a detailed coloring image designed to help calm and focus students who come from chaos to class. But I’m also using those coloring pages to help strengthen any dexterity weaknesses for clearer handwriting.

I haven’t read much about this project yet. I just know that those folks must have wanted to do something about the growing discontent and disrespect in our schools.

It’s a start.
