The great moral teachers have always used stories. Stories quickly get to the center of human dilemmas -- right to the place where character qualities can be seen and used, appreciated and remembered. After hearing and acting out the stories, the students find it easy to relate them to their own lives. Sometimes we improvise their experiences. I invite guidance counselors to join me in teaching this class. A minimum of six classroom visits is suggested so that the students deepen their engagement with the ideas. Stories focus on courage, deep thinking, respect, self-respect, responsibility, creative solutions, honesty, kindness, perseverance, fairness and peacemaking.
