Voters can cut through campaign rhetoric to each candidateÂs core values with this online voter education Âcrash courseÂ. Voters can sweep away campaign confusion and evaluate each candidate based on a list of core values.
What are the core values of each candidate? How reliable is television as a source of voter education? What other sources are available? Which candidate is the best role model for your children? The voter education course does not tell you who to vote for, but helps you answer these and other questions for yourself. It is available online through election day.
Establishing core values comprises an important part of character education, which is the purpose of a new online workshop by author and successful parent Christine McClung. The family dinner table has long been the most effective setting for character education and to teach children how to become good citizens. By becoming educated themselves, parents can be the most reliable source of truthful voter education. Parents most successfully foster good citizenship by educating their children years before they reach voting age.
The theme of the character education workshop supports the concept that character still mattersÂ from everyday living to world eventsÂ from every child to every world leader. Informed citizenship in children today produces trustworthy leaders tomorrow.
ÂTonightÂs dinner talk builds tomorrowÂs heroesÂ, says McClung. Using the time-tested format of dinner talk, the workshop guidebook contains a collection of themes from epic literature to provide young people with heroic role models.
Dinner talk has grown beyond a teaching method to a way of life. The online character education workshop addresses such topics as peer pressure, burn-out, teaching morals without nagging, making lessons unforgettable, optimal communication, etc. The support website has grown to ÂepicÂ proportions, including dinner talk themes, expert commentary, character education activities, and many other resources.
