At The American School of Protocol®, we view high school as the last stop before reality sets in. Some students will continue their education, some will join the military, and others will be part of the American workforce. Character Education for High School Students focuses on appearance, job and college interviews, marketing yourself, correspondence, dating skills, attending events, respect and courtesy, and more. Three lessons are also devoted to dining skills. There is a very short window of time to teach these sixteen life-skills lessons. The decision that the students make in a given situation, can change their lives in a negative or positive way. Our goal in teaching this curriculum is to develop more respectful people who know and understand that they are responsible for their actions
Character Education for High School Students is a group activity-based program that teaches students the social skills they need for life during and after high school.
First impressions are made within seven seconds. In Character Education for Elementary Children, we teach students how to present themselves in a variety of situations. Lessons include greeting others, first impressions, appreciation, communicating with others, attitude, fairness, and trust. We address the consequences of negative profiling and bullying. By popular demand, because we eat three times a day, table skills are taught also.
By removing the school pressures created in a co-ed class, Character Education for Middle School Boys, becomes easier to teach. The soft skills presented in the ten lesson curriculum have been proven to increase productivity at school, at home, and in the work place. Greeting others, the importance of posture, appearance, handling emergencies, respect and courtesy, and sportsmanship are all important topics for this age group. The goal of the lessons is to decrease the epidemic of inconsiderate discourtesies and bullying. By teaching Character Education for Middle School Boys, you are giving the students a better understanding of what is expected of them as young adults.
Research shows a positive trend in test scores and confidence in middle school aged students learning in same-sex classes. By removing the school pressures created in a co-ed class, Character Education for Middle School Girls becomes easier to teach. Social media, peer pressure, developing a changing body, and a deep desire to be accepted, are a few of the reasons why middle school girls are the most difficult to work with. These ten lessons are written for the teacher with the sensitivity of the pre-teen in mind.
In designing Character Education for Young Children, we pushed their learning capabilities to the max. Imagine walking into a classroom of children, three years old and ten lessons later, those children are holding a knife and fork correctly, cutting and eating in the appropriate manner, and feeling very proud of themselves. By learning how to shake hands, make introductions, handle an emergency, be respectful, and display correct table manners, young students will have the confidence necessary to succeed.
