HEROES AMONG US

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

LESSONS OF PERSONAL BRAVERY AND SELF-SACRIFICE

The Medal of Honor CDP is a resource designed by teachers to provide students with opportunities to explore the important concepts of courage, commitment, sacrifice, patriotism, integrity and citizenship and how these values can be exemplified in daily life. The depth and breadth of our students’ insight and reflection after interacting with these materials has been remarkable. We are confident that you will find these resources to be as rich and engaging as we have.
