Lessons on Courage, Integrity, and Good Citizenship
In the introductory webinar for the edWeb.net Lessons of Personal Bravery and Self-Sacrifice community, presenter Noel Wall, a teacher coach from the Medal of Honor Foundation, began by providing a brief history of the Medal of Honor and its legacy of courage, sacrifice and patriotism. She introduced the free Medal of Honor Character Development Program (CDP), which includes over 50 lesson plans and 100 video vignettes on character traits such as courage, integrity, self-sacrifice, and good citizenship. The CDP is a free cross-curriculum resource for middle and high school students, aligned with National/State Common Core Standards. Noel provided an in-depth discussion of two lesson plans that use primary source material and content rich non-fiction, plus a brief video of a Medal of Honor Recipient. In upcoming free webinars for this community, Medal of Honor Recipients will be featured discussing the importance of character in young people today.
