A survey of desired values, virtues, and attributes was developed and given to preservice and inservice educators as well as parents and individuals in the south Georgia area. Combining data from these sources, 30 attributes were identified as a result on an analysis of the average ratings among the surveyed groups. An additional 12 were selected based on their importance to at least one of the groups surveyed. A short version of the survey was developed that includes a total of 62 of the most highly selected term.
Selecting one of the terms below will provide a definition of that term, an overview of some developmental issues involved in a child or youth acquiring that attribute and some suggestions on how teachers and parents can facilitate that development for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten, elementary, middle grades, and high school students. There are also some suggestions about how development of the attribute can be monitored and assessed.
This resource is still under development and many terms do not yet have recommended lesson plans. A quick index has been developed to show which levels have at least one lesson plan. If you have additional suggestions or find a link that does not work, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
