Theories come and go, and as interesting as these may be, the only way the science of character can have a tangible impact in the classroom is through finding concrete and creative ways to translate it into practice. This toolkit does just that. All exercises are clear, explicit and easy to follow, adding up to a great dip-in and dip-out teacher support. -- Dr Ilona Boniwell, Programme Leader, MSc in Applied Positive Psychology, Anglia Ruskin University & CEO of Positran
The Character Toolkit for Teachers is an excellent resource for busy teachers seeking an introduction to Character Education and Positive Education in an accessible and well-researched book. It includes a wealth of ideas that can be built into educational programs to promote mental health and well-being in children, and, just as importantly, it details practical activities that can be lifted straight off the pages and delivered in schools and classrooms tomorrow. I recommend The Character Toolkit for Teachers to school personnel charged with enabling young minds to develop a positive perspective towards life, learning and relationships. -- Jane Kirkham, Psychologist and Teacher, Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia
The Toolkit's many exercises provide school professionals and their pupils with the necessary guidance to teach and learn differently. The authors invite us to effect a mental shift, by considering well-being as an essential key to success. Through its thoroughly researched background information, precise instructions, practical references and-most importantly-sincere empathy, this book strikes me as a perfect instrument to make simple steps towards great goals. -- Claire Russon, psychologist, senior research and development advisor, Ministry of Education, Children and Youth, Luxembourg
The authors have carefully created a brilliant guide. The book expertly provides theories and fun-yet-thought-provoking practical activities in easy, accessible chunks for schools that strive to help each child reach their full potential. The Toolkit guides teachers to look beyond the academic side of a child and helps to supply stability and wellbeing. It ensures that children feel safe, engaged, supported and challenged in all areas of their lives moving through school into adulthood. -- Louisa Simons, Lower Key Stage two Phase Leader and Whole School Growth Mindset Leader, Brodetsky Primary School
The Character Toolkit brilliantly combines current research in the field of character education with strategies for teacher implementation. Clear, straightforward classroom activities, which are easy to put into practice, are presented alongside background reading and links to further information which allow teachers to develop their knowledge and understanding. This is a practical and invaluable resource for teachers seeking to support students in navigating the school years and beyond. -- Lauren Knussen, Senior Research Associate & PhD Candidate, School of Education, University of Technology Sydney
Positively practical...perfectly poised to become a primary resource for teachers, practitioners and parents alike. The activities and resources are easily adaptable to various settings and ages, even my college-level students! The Character Toolkit for Teachers is definitely a must-have in the library of anyone concerned about the social-emotional wellbeing of our children and youth. -- Beverley Myatt, M.Ed. Psychology Professor, Durham College, Ontario, Canada
Steeped in research, this toolkit should be essential reading for every school team and integral in the design of a character education curriculum. Wellbeing must be a priority for both children and staff in school and character education part of the foundation on which to help build a school's ethos and culture. Roberts and Wright have written a must-read for teachers everywhere. -- Flora Barton, Headteacher, Crowmarsh Gifford C. E. Primary School
The Character Toolkit is an essential resource for teachers and school leaders who wish to introduce character education and positive education into their classrooms and school environments in a meaningful way. In this toolkit, Roberts and Wright have provided educators with a broad range of useful, practical and evidence-based activities to assist with the provision of a holistic education which prioritises student and community wellbeing. -- Rhiannon McGee, Head of Positive Education at Geelong Grammar School
Frederika and Elizabeth bring to life the theory of character education as bitesize practical chunks in this teacher-friendly guide. They have done the hard work for us in distilling the reading into suggestions for how to apply it in a school (or a home) environment. Ethos, Morals, Ethics, Values and Virtues are buzz words in current education discussions but teachers do not always know how to put them into practice in a research-informed way. I especially like the chapter on gratitude and kindness, with the focus on developing 'emotional granularity' in our learners. If our students can be holistically taught to identify, articulate and harness their emotions then we will enable them to flourish with mental and physical wealth. I look forward to sharing this book with my staff, students and parents at Aureus. -- Hannah Wilson, Executive Headteacher Aureus School & Aureus Primary School

Easy to use with practical activities which allow you to dip in and out with any effort. A great book to play with and create new learning experiences.
Great for teachers, social workers, youth workers, parents, coaches and all those who work with young people....I've even used some of these activities with adults!
