Ignite Summer Learning with the Free Character Development Program


girl-791037_1280As educators, we find ourselves staying just as active in the summer as we are during the school year. We often continue to work with young people within our communities, our spiritual groups, and our own families, which keeps us active and stimulated, gearing up for the school year ahead. In this edWeb webinar, presented by the Lessons of Personal Bravery and Self-Sacrifice community, Tim Smith explored ways that the free Character Development Program (CDP) can augment the desire for participation and leadership in our homes, summer groups, and classrooms by providing a direct outlet to involvement and summer learning. Attendees discussed ways to use the Character Development Program during the summer months.; explored the idea of using the CDP during summer tutoring sessions with students who struggle with reading as well as overall motivation for school; talked about the best way to make summer learning in our households fun as well as ways to keep our brains stimulated throughout the summer; and discovered ways that the CDP can be used during summer camps and VBS sessions.
