We are excited to announce that there is now an entire curriculum built around 7 YARDS by Character Counts!
"I remember as a student going to monthly Character Counts assemblies where speakers would discuss one of the 6 pillars of character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship... Topics like character are too important to miss out on. It's my hope to raise kids with great integrity, morals, and values; not just to have high test scores (which I would love that too). That's why it's important to keep learning opportunities as fun and engaging as possible.
With these new resources based off my film 7 YARDS, students will now have access to a curriculum that is compelling and advances student character skills. Students will be able to watch the film in class then have the lessons of what helped get me through my toughest times. This guided lesson plan will unpack how I was able to remain resilient, achieve my goals, and overcome my challenges." - Chris Norton
