Join the CDE for the fifth annual Character Day on September 26, 2018. Character Day is a free global initiative where school districts, individual classrooms, and groups of all sizes screen films on the science of character development from different perspectives, dive into discussion materials catered to different ages, and join an online global conversation featuring prominent leaders discussing the importance of developing character strengths (resilience, grit, empathy, courage, kindness) — all rooted in evidence-based research. Resources are available year-round. Learn more in this CDE letter. Visit the Let It Ripple webpage to watch the one-minute trailer, for more information, and to sign up.
