Using Picture Books for Character Education in the ClassroomBook - 2004
In districts across the country, character education is rapidly earning a place in the required core curriculum. Quality literature provides an excellent starting point for addressing the issue of character. Good stories provide students with a neutral ground where they can comfortably confront problems and choices. They also make different cultures, experiences, and attitudes more accessible, challenging students to evaluate and think critically about the world around them. This critical thinking is key to expanding students' awareness and moral compass.
