Eleven Principles of Effective Character EducationFrom: The Character Education Partnership

  1. Character education promotes core ethical values as the

basis of good character.

 2. ‘Character’ must be comprehensively defined to include

thinking, feeling, and behavior.

3. Effective character education requires an intentional,

proactive, and comprehensive approach that promotes the core

values in all phases of school life.

4. The school must be a caring community.

5. To develop character, students need opportunities for moral

action.

slide15

6. Effective character education includes a meaningful and challenging academic curriculum that respects all learners and helps them succeed.

 7. Character education should strive to develop students’ intrinsic motivation.

 8. The school staff must become a learning and moral community in which all share responsibility for character education and attempt to adhere to the same core values that guide the education of the students.

 9. Character education requires moral leadership from both staff and students.

 10. The school must recruit parents and community members as full partners in the character-building effort.

 11. Evaluation of character education should assess the character of the school, the school staff’s functioning as character educators, and the extent to which students manifest good character.
