The High School Training provides all school staff with a comprehensive orientation to the WiseSkills program, and includes a variety of small group activities where educators work together to plan specific ways to use the Wisdom for Life curriculum with students. The training helps high schools develop acommon language of character in order to build a schoolwide culture that models, teaches, and reinforces good character. The High School Training helps Character Counts! schools teach the Six Pillars of Character. Teachers discuss ways to model good character on campus throughout the year and gain simple ideas for teaching healthy choices with simple 10-20 minute activities that can be used in advisory or homeroom periods. Teachers learn practical strategies for integrating each monthly Character Theme into the subject areas they teach and begin to use the WiseSkills
materials as part of their subject area lesson preparations.
After the training, educators understand that teaching character
is not an extra lesson or another program; rather, positive character
underlies everything teachers do and forms the moral foundation for the
subject content they teach. The High School Training can be delivered with a LIVE Training, or with the video training that is included in the High School Implementation Kit.
