Meeting Common Core English Language Arts and English Language Development Standards with Character Education Lesson Plans in Alternative Education Grades 9 through 12
Hoedel, Joseph M.; Lee, Robert E.
Journal of Character Education, v12 n1 p1-15 2016

All 3 sources of data agreed that using the character education curriculum to meet English language arts and English language development standards was associated with increased attendance, percentage of passed coursework each semester, and higher grade point averages. There also may have been greater student body cohesion, a more positive group process, and heightened employability values, habits, and skills
