  6. 6. 6 The vision of a Smart & Good School is based on the 2005 study Smart & Good High Schools Tom Lickona & Matt Davidson 100 Promising Practices for Integrating Excellence & Ethics www.cortland.edu/character
  7. 7. Character has two major parts: performance character and moral character.
  8. 8. Performance Character • Commitment to continuous improvement • Goal setting • Work ethic • Determination • Self-confidence • Initiative • Creativity Moral/Ethical Character • Respect • Responsibility to others • Love (Compassion) • Humility • Integrity • Justice • Moral courage
  9. 9. Performance Character: Doing Our Best Work
  10. 10. What NOT to do with Ethics & Values from “The Office”
  11. 11. You must discover what you are made for, and you must work indefatigably to achieve excellence in your field of endeavor. If you are called to be a street-sweeper, you should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music. —Martin Luther King, Jr.
  12. 12. The goal in life is to make the effort to do the best you are capable of doing—in marriage, at your job, in your community, for your country. Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your abilities. The effort is what counts in everything. —John Wooden, UCLA Basketball Coach
  13. 13. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? Performance is the outcome (the grade, the honor or award, the achievement). Performance character consists of those qualities needed to pursue our personal best—whether the outcome is realized or not.
  14. 14. Performance Character • Commitment to continuous improvement • Goal setting • Work ethic • Determination • Self-confidence • Initiative • Creativity Moral/Ethical Character • Respect • Responsibility to others • Love (Compassion) • Humility • Integrity • Justice • Moral courage
  15. 15. Internet Cheating
  16. 16. We asked high school students: ”What persons or experiences in high school have most influenced the development of your performance character?”
  17. 17. Moral Character: Doing the Right Thing Moral character consists of the virtues needed for ethical behavior, positive relationships, and responsible citizenship. Moral character honors the interests of others, so that we do not violate moral values as we pursue our performance goals.
  18. 18. We asked high school students: ”What persons or experiences in high school have most influenced the development of your moral character?”
  19. 19. “We are taught from the start that plagiarism and all forms of cheating are wrong, and that any kind of cruelty toward other students is not to be tolerated. We often have assemblies that discuss how to promote peace and justice in society. Graduation requirements include 100 hours of community service, but our school encourages us to do more.” —A High School Girl
  20. 20. “There are two roads in life: a high road and a low road. The high road is harder, but it takes you somewhere worth going. The low road is easy, but it’s circular— you eventually find yourself back where you started. “Your life won’t get better—and you won’t get better—on the low road.” —High School Science Teacher
  21. 21. A person of character embodies both performance character and moral character.
  22. 22. Without moral character, performance character easily runs amuck. You could become a courageous terrorist who blows up innocent people, an ingenious CEO who cooks the books, or a brilliant valedictorian who is only out for herself.
  23. 23. Without performance character, moral character is ineffective. You could be a person who has good intentions but can’t carry them out effectively. Performance character enables us to act on our moral values.
  24. 24. Only by developing performance character will schools: Promote academic achievement for all students foster an ethic of excellence, not just higher test scores  develop scientific and entrepreneurial talent produce a competitive, creative workforce.
  25. 25. Only by developing moral character will schools: create safe learning environments prevent peer cruelty decrease discipline problems reduce cheating foster social & emotional skills develop ethical thinkers produce public-spirited citizens.
  26. 26. Performance character and moral character are defined in terms of 8 Strengths of Character, assets needed for a flourishing life.
  27. 27. THE WHOLE PERSON What are the Strengths of Character that make up the “whole person”?
  28. 28. 1. Lifelong learner and critical thinker 2. Diligent and capable performer 3. Socially and emotionally skilled person 4. Ethical thinker 5. Respectful and responsible moral agent 6. Self-disciplined person who pursues a healthy lifestyle 7. Contributing community member and democratic citizen 8. Spiritual person engaged in crafting a life of noble purpose.
