In this webinar, Deborah will talk about things she’s learned along her journey from the classroom to the highest levels of education.
Many students think that “veteran” is synonymous with “old.” They may also think that “Medal of Honor” is only a video game. History doesn’t happen in books. Bring it to life this year for your students as we approach the 96th anniversary of Armistice Day, the celebration of the close of “The War to End All Wars.”
Many students struggle when asked to define abstract values like commitment or courage. Artistic expression is as varied as the artistic talent of our students, so everyone can succeed at these projects.
The Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation President & CEO, Ronald T. Rand, interviewed Vietnam-era Medal of Honor Recipient, Harvey C. “Barney” Barnum, Jr., who shared his thoughts on the Medal of Honor and some of his experiences both during his military service and afterwards.
“You can be a hero.” That was the message that Medal of Honor Recipient, Hal Fritz conveyed to the students that took part in a special webinar with their teachers.
The Medal of Honor Character Development Program (CDP) is a free resource for teachers that includes over 50 lesson plans and 100 video vignettes on the character traits of courage, integrity, sacrifice, commitment, citizenship, and patriotism, based on the Medal of Honor Recipients’ stories.
Presenter Noel Wall of the Medal of Honor Foundation provided 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.
