The Five Strategies of The Virtues Project are powerful strategies to help you manage your classroom environment and promote mutual respect with students, peers and parents. These strategies will help you create a positive, safe and caring culture in your classroom and school community.

The Five Strategies of The Virtues Project provide you with tools to see the character strengths in you and your students and help pinpoint where growth of character is needed to facilitate the learning process.
The Educators Guide, Classroom Virtue Cards and virtues posters are character education tools for the classroom and school community.
The Educators Guide will teach you the Five Strategies of The Virtues Project, provide you with tools to implement, and provide you with virtues activities for 52 virtues.  Some of what you will learn about:

* remind you to celebrate and honor one another
* your leadership style

Classroom Virtue Cards are a deck of 52 different virtues that teach the meaning of a specific virtue and ways to practice the virtue.  They are a great tool for classroom discussion,  boundary setting, writing assignments, journals, restorative justice and reflection corner.

Virtues Posters serve as gentle reminders to practice virtues and add rich vocabulary to discussions and writing projects.
