How do we empower our communities and inspire students to act as productive citizens? This year, Character.org addresses that task with more than 50 breakout sessions at the National Forum on Character Education, "Educate, Inspire, Empower: Building Productive and Caring Citizens." Just a few weeks before a presidential election, the National Forum will take place in Washington D.C., where we will discuss civic responsibility, creating good citizenship and building leadership in our communities.
The conference is where educators, superintendents, and researchers will gather and enjoy keynote presentations by Michele Borba, Bob Woodson and Cathryn Berger Kaye. Join us and other thought leaders in developing comprehensive character education strategies that mobilize our communities to work.
Sessions include, but are not limited to:
- "Research-based Strategies for Promoting Social, Emotional, and Academic Skills" by Kathy Beland
- "Helping Adolescents Understand, Connect, and Participate in The World Outside the Classroom Door" by Shanie Israel
- "The Mindset Revolution: A Unique Approach to Schoolwide Success" by Scott Shickler
- "Social Justice and Citizenship: Inspiring and Empowering Young People through Humanities and Character Education" by Tara Phillips
