About Honorable Character (http://www.honorablecharacter.com)
Originally developed in the 1980s by a team of educators, Honorable Character Classroom Management System enables teachers to incorporate character development in students throughout the school day in a practical, positive and easy to use system. Targeting fourteen character traits, the child is the story, the living model who becomes the example of good character. Teachers affirm students for showing virtue at school, and follow up with a positive report sent home at the end of every week. Students are naturally motivated to demonstrate honorable character, the classroom becomes peaceful, and teachers are free to teach. Founded in 2003 as a non-profit corporation, Honorable Character, Inc. has developed classroom materials for both Christian and public schools, as well as a home version for parents to instill the values learned at school.
