Virtues Studies

This hour and a half class will focus on literature, writing , and art as students read through Bill Bennett’s treasury of great moral stories, The Book of Virtues. Each literature selection will feature a different virtue: compassion, friendship, courage, perseverance, loyalty, honesty, responsibility and work. Classes will be centered on discussions of the readings, enhanced by art projects that emphasize the focused character trait.
