Screen Shot 2015-02-20 at 1.31.40 PMIt is easy to see how character education fits well within the disciplines of literature and history, but is it possible to find meaningful ways to utilize this program in a science or math class? Yes! The depth and richness of the Medal of Honor Character Development Program can be a vehicle to take lessons of service and courage into the world of numbers and scientific discovery.

In this webinar for the Lessons of Personal Bravery and Self-Sacrifice community, presenter Tim Smith, 7th Grade Math Teacher in Tennessee, shared how to use the Medal of Honor Character Development curriculum to explore content specific vocabulary, provide a unique context for mathematical exploration, and cultivate the seeds of discovery and invention.  Tim explored how you can motivate your students to pursue their technological aspirations with integrity and a view to serve others.
