This document presents a description of the Face of America Classroom Program, a character education program based on a mission to bridge and build communities through sports. Three language arts lesson plans are provided on three themes: achievement, stereotypes (especially of people with disabilities), and strategies for healthy minds and healthy bodies. The format of each lesson plan provides the lesson's central objective, skills promoted, estimated time required, a full activity, background information, links to the Face of America Web site for each activity, writing prompts, links to the lesson plan's development of character education, and links to national curriculum standards. Presented separately are suggestions for ways to modify each lesson plan for teachers of health, social studies, and physical education. (DB)
