about

This accessible and much-needed resource sets out advice on how to develop character and encourage wellbeing in pupils aged 5-11.

Schools are increasingly aware of how beneficial positive character skills can be, but resources on how to develop them are scarce. This book gives teachers the means to promote gratitude, positive emotions, character strengths, and positive relationships through 100+ easy-to-implement activities such as student diaries, classroom displays and letter writing campaigns. It also includes tools and strategies that go beyond the classroom, helping to embed character education into the culture and ethos of the entire school. Each chapter will include a short introduction to the relevant theoretical background, and all activities are based on validated character education and positive psychology interventions.

Bite-sized and practical, and full of ideas that can be dipped in and out of in the classroom, this is an ideal book for busy teachers.

Editorial Reviews

A sensationally effective practical toolkit! Throughout the guide, Roberts and Wright seamlessly use theoretical perspectives and evidence based research to introduce a theme and set the context for tasks; these include whole school, class, group and individual activities to develop character and a positive approach to education. Activities are clear and quick to read - no time wasted! Additionally, further reading and TED talks are suggested. This really is the text of my teacher dreams; a multi-layered character education gem that needs to be on every school bookshelf! - Kate Sowter, Deputy Head Pathfinder Teaching School, CPD Lead Pathfinder Multi Academy Trust
