Time to start planning for CHARACTER COUNTS! Week 2012! This year the celebrations will take place October 21-27.
That may seem like a long way off, but when the new school year starts it will be right around the corner. That’s why we’ve already posted two installments of resources that will help you plant the seeds for a fruitful and fun CC! Week. Just fill out our quick and easy registration form and download to your heart’s content!
You’ll find tools and guides to help you get the word out, a packet to distribute to local businesses (think: chamber of commerce), and another packet to get community groups on board. As always, we recommend getting young people involved in planning and organizing activities. We’ve posted resources to help you (and them) with that too. Need help convincing your colleagues? We’ve got a sheet listing the benefits of celebrating CC! Week.
This year we’re featuring special project-based learning (PBL) resources in each of the four installments. Let us know what you think of the two that are available now.
After you register, you’ll see what’s in store for installments 3 and 4. Among the resources: more lesson plans, project ideas, and Red Ribbon Week tie-in suggestions.
Don’t keep your plans and ideas to yourself. Post a comment here and share them with the world!
