Character-Based Decision Making 

A free, two-part webinar to support the implementation of SEE's Golden Compass
What: Free two-part 25-minute professional development webinars to support the implementation of character-based decision making as described in SEE’s workbook The Golden Compass.  Character-based decision making is a skill that students can use K-12 when confronted with social challenges and dilemmas.  The process helps guide students to a solution that demonstrates prosocial character with respect to the Golden Rule.  The webinar will describe how elements of The Golden Compass process can support developing the skills sought in Common Core where the competencies of analysis and evaluation with a focus on character can be practiced in reading, literature or social studies courses.  Practice of the cognitive skills in academic content courses is encouraged to strengthen the ability of students to demonstrate character-based decision making.

When:  October 7 and 8, 2015 at 3:30 PM Eastern Time and to be archived on SEE’s website

Who:  Teachers K-12 recognizing workbook scenarios are focused on middle school and high school scenarios

Why:  If decision making is taught at all, most models encourage students to ultimately, “Make a good choice!”  Few students are able to clearly articulate what defines a good or ethical choice.  The Golden Compass character-based decision making process offers a teachable strategy that can be embraced by all cultures in our pluralistic society.  Students are taught a process where decisions are guided by prosocial character traits and The Golden Rule.  The analysis steps taught in The Golden Compass are also consistent with the Common Core objectives to develop student competencies of analysis and evaluation.
