What Do You Stand For? For Teens: A Guide to Building Character
Barbara A. Lewis
The purpose of this book is to help students ages 11 and older understand themselves better, figure out what they stand for, and develop positive character traits. Sample character traits include loyalty, peacefulness, citizenship, cleanliness, honesty, and integrity. Quotations on these traits offer words of wisdom. The author presents dilemmas in each chapter to challenge students' thinking about the character traits and to sharpen their problem-solving and decision-making skills. Activities offer fun and interesting ways to explore, experience, and strengthen positive character traits. True stories profile real kids who serve as examples for that particular trait. In addition, each chapter contains a section that lists Web sites, videos, books, and other resources. Posters, stickers, and buttons also are available. (277 pages)
