There are three chapters in the fourth grade manual with 3 words in each chapter for a total of 9 words. Each of the three chapters begins with personal Pre and Post self-evaluation forms. Each chapter also has daily and weekly tracking forms so that students can reflect on their behavior and track their growth over time. The goal is to help students increase their self-awareness and strengthen their reflective thinking skills.
The words for the 4th grade curriculum are:
IQ – Listening, Focus, Responsibility
EQ – Patience, Optimism, Self-control
SQ – Caring, Peacefulness, Compassion
Many feel character education & values based learning are new fields. Our research spans over three decades & covers a range of disciplines. Quest 4 Character – A Values for Life Program – is the result.
The program was born out of three over-arching questions:
1. What does it mean to be a human being?
2. What does it mean to express our true humanity?
3. How can I, as one human being, live an ordinary life in an extra-ordinary way.
