Free character education lesson plans and, in fact, any other kind of lesson plan are not always suited to your needs. They do not always fit the environment in which you need to teach character. They do not always fit the time slot you have open for character building.
When I served as principal of a school in New Zealand, we decided to work character into the weekly, whole-school assemblies. The situation called for a character education lesson that would take only 5-10 minutes, not 30-45 minutes. It also called for something that would speak to every age at once. We were surprised at the dearth of such materials.
Maybe you have had the same experience. Maybe you were asked to present a character lesson at the opening or closing of an assembly program? Maybe you were given only five minutes at the end of the day to speak on character. Perhaps you want to teach character in the setting of a boys-and-girls’ club – and can give only five minutes to a lesson?
