Medal of Honor Character Development Program

This full day training will provide educators with all the tools they need to bring

the Medal of Honor Character Development Program into their classrooms.

This extensive curriculum, which uses the Oral Histories of Medal of Honor

Recipients, focuses on values and how students can use these examples of courage,

commitment, sacrifice, integrity, citizenship and patriotism to influence change in

their own communities. Teachers and administrators from middle and high schools

and across all disciplines are invited to attend, and substitute teacher costs can be

reimbursed to the district or school.

Attendees will:

• Receive the full curriculum kit at no cost

• Participate in model lessons

• Learn best practices for their classrooms

• Enjoy a complimentary breakfast and lunch

Admin PD Opportunity

NJPSA, NJASA, and FEA are sponsoring what looks to be a pretty nice model of leader PD that is ongoing and supportive. As you know, some money has been set aside for admin PD this year and I think this would be a great opportunity for a group of Madison leaders to attend together. If you are interested, please let me know by August 1.

Please note that only Cohort 3 has availability remaining.
