Speaking Character and the Speaking Character Study Guide were written by Dr. Earlene Smith, founder of the Oklahoma Center for Character Education. Dr. Smith wrote this book to help educators become comfortable speaking a character language in order to reduce misunderstanding between cultures.
Words like truthfulness, attentiveness, responsibility, loyalty, and punctuality mean different things to different people. And when communication breaks down, learning and relationships suffer.
Speaking Character (book) presents 49 original Character First qualities with a character definition and several “sentence starters” to help you integrate the character concept into daily speech.
Speaking Character Study Guide helps you focus on one word each week by taking a few minutes to research and contemplate the word and its meaning. These words are not new, but sometimes they are seldom used, and thus deserve special attention.
