There are three chapters in the fifth grade manual with 3 words in each chapter for a total of 9 words. Each chapters opens with personal Pre and Post self-evaluation forms. All chapters also include weekly tracking forms so that students can reflect on their behavior and track their growth over time. The goal is to help students strengthen their reflective thinking skills and increase their awareness of their own behavior.
The 5th grade learning words are:
IQ – Goals-oriented, Curiosity, Forethought
EQ – Determination, Honesty, Self-discipline
SQ – Helpfulness, Friendship, Respect
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.
