Build the character of your students. Change the climate of your school.
Transform hearts. HONORABLE CHARACTER™ Classroom Management System
is not a curriculum. It is a simple, affordable tool that supports the character,
academic, social, and emotional development of students.
The HONORABLE CHARACTER™ good behavior chart is designed to help
teachers recognize positive behavior in students. Students learn the importance
of core character values like responsibility, self-control, diligence, respect,
HONORABLE CHARACTER™ builds a solid foundation for students’ character
and academic development and is compatible with the social-emotional
learning (SEL) model, which helps kids develop the social and emotional skills
they need to thrive.
The HONORABLE CHARACTER™ Approach
Through positive recognition, the HONORABLE CHARACTER™ school behavior
chart helps kids learn to regulate their emotions, make better decisions, and
navigate the learning environment more effectively.
Here’s how the system works:
Teachers identify positive behaviors: Teachers look for students exhibiting the
traits highlighted on the HONORABLE CHARACTER™ Trait Poster, or Chart—like
self-control, diligence, cooperation, obedience, and respect. There are 14 traits
for elementary school kids and 6 for preschoolers. All traits are based on
universally valued moral principles.
Teachers chart the behavior: When a teacher observes a student exhibiting
one of the identified character traits, they (or the student) record the character
exhibited next to the student’s name on the HONORABLE CHARACTER™
Teachers build authentic school-family partnerships: Each week, teachers inform
parents of their child’s honorable choices via a simple communication tool.
HONORABLE CHARACTER™ is a prevention-based system. It uses positive
recognition for good behavior, which naturally reduces the need for correction.
If a student behaves unwisely or needs help developing a particular character
trait, the system guides teachers on how they can hold kids accountable.
The HONORABLE CHARACTER™ system is not an attempt to “ parent” kids,
nor is it a substitute for academic subjects. It is simply a tool to help teachers
bring the best out of students in a healthy, constructive way.
Kids who learn how to effectively communicate, collaborate with others, and
manage their emotions tend to be more confident and secure as adults.
The HONORABLE CHARACTER™ system has been credited with changing the
classroom environment and even school culture. Our behavior charts for teachers
are used in thousands of classrooms throughout the U.S.
