7 Yards Film and CHARACTER COUNTS! Lessons
Chris Norton’s incredible journey from paralysis to walking down the aisle at his wedding illustrates important lessons about resilience, responsibility, caring, and many other important character skills. These valuable lessons are enhanced by a new series of curricular resources for middle school and high school students which supplement the film. The research-based strategies provided in each lesson will help students advance their character skills. The six lessons connect the Six Pillars of Character (trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship) to sections of the 7 Yards movie. Additionally, the lessons cover topics like goal achievement, growth mindset, communications strategies, and overcoming adversity. Each of the six student handouts also includes an Optimal Performance Assessment so students can reflect on how well they are demonstrating character skills and what they could do differently in the future. This resource includes a facilitator guide and a student handout for each of the Six Pillars. View in the store.
