The Medal of Honor Character Development Program training session will be offered in Dallas/DFW area October 24th. The information below is provided by their organization.
The Medal of Honor Foundation (Watch Video Here: http://www.cmohedu.org/default.aspx ) offers – Medal of Honor Character Development.
This training and the curriculum kit have been designed for teachers to take back to the classroom environment to help their students to be “Upstanders” not “Bystanders” in their life. This curriculum uses oral histories of the Medal of Honor recipients and focuses on core values of good citizens. Examples of courage, commitment, sacrifice, integrity, citizenship and patriotism will be discussed. The goal is for students to understand that possessing these core values can change their lives and the lives of those around them.
Medal of Honor: Lessons of Personal Bravery and Self-Sacrifice, is a resource designed by teachers to provide students with opportunities to explore the important concepts of courage, commitment, sacrifice, patriotism, integrity, and citizenship and how these values can be exemplified in daily life.
While drawn from the personal accounts of living Medal of Honor recipients, this collection of lesson plans does not glorify or glamorize war. On the contrary, these dramatic “living histories” and the accompanying instructional activities encourage students to consider each concept from their own perspective. The character of these men is what stands out in each story. The Medal of Honor recipients demonstrate and articulate many of the abstract principles upon which our nation was founded in a way that makes those principles very real.
The depth and breadth of our students’ insight and reflection after interacting with these materials has been remarkable. We are confident that you will find these resources to be as rich and engaging as we have.
