Diligence is power. Imagine what life would be like if we approached each important task with discipline and focus. If we always did our best. If we persevered even when things became difficult or discouraging. In this video we look at what it means to be diligent and what a potent force diligence brings into our lives. As a case in point, we see the poignant story of a teenage girl with cerebral palsy, whose diligent approach to living has enabled her to pursue and attain ambitious goals despite her disability.
ABOUT THE VIDEO SERIES:
The In Search of Character series focuses on the ten virtues most commonly named by parents, educators, and community groups concerned with character education. While each of these words evokes its own meaning, what counts most, like colors on a canvas, is the way they interact to paint a complete picture. In Search of Character is not about teaching individual virtues, it’s about helping young people construct a vision of themselves as good people and then live up to that vision. It’s about showing them that, in a world where poor character is so commonplace, they can choose to be better than that.
Each volume is approximately 25min in length and includes a printable teaching guide filled with discussion questions, group activities, and writing assignments that further support the lesson.
