Gee, Robin, Ed.; Quick, Joseph
This book identifies examples of programs in Wisconsin schools that reinforce the core set of community values identified by the Wisconsin Citizenship Initiative Task Force. Those values include courage, honesty, respect, individual responsibility, and civic responsibility. The profiled programs teach the core values and involve partnerships between the school, the family, and the community. The book includes examples for a mix of grade levels, types of programs and school sizes. The example programs are easily replicated using this book as a resource. The book features three parts: (1) material from the Wisconsin Citizenship Initiative Task Force, including the task force's recommendations and a list of its membership; (2) the programs; and (3) a brief list of resources, most of which are mentioned in the program sections.
