A 2012 survey cited in a report by the National Council on Teacher Quality found that over 40 percent of new teachers reported feeling either “not at all prepared” or “only somewhat prepared” to handle a range of classroom management or discipline situations. The same report said it was “the top problem” identified by teachers.

Breakout Sessions I and II

Ed DeRoche & Sean Chumbley

I’m Ed DeRoche and this is “50 Minutes.” In this program we will discuss 5 questions about character and character education.

  • WHAT is character? WHAT is character education?
  • WHY do we need character education in our schools?
  • WHY do we (CERC) use an umbrella metaphor to describe character education?
  • WHERE can you get instructional resources for teaching your students about character?
