    Course(s): EDUC 711C Effective Character Education


    Dr. William Damon, Professor of Education at Stanford University, is the author of The Moral Child, which is used in the course EDUC 711C Effective Character Education. Dr. Damon wrote the following paragraph as an introduction to his book.

     I wrote The Moral Child to communicate up-to-date scientific knowledge about the moral and character development of children and adolescents. The book covers the child’s acquisition of moral ideas such as fairness and authority, the role of moral emotions, the importance of virtues such as honesty and compassion, and the ways that young people around the world learn these core moral principles through their own cultural lenses. The book is written for teachers, parents, and students, and it covers major approaches to moral and character education that have made their way into k-12 schools in recent years.
