Do you want to your students to succeed in all areas of their lives?
This Courage unit is a crucial element for strengthening the core curriculum and ensuring our students face their fears and have the courage to stand up for what is right, even against adversity. Sadly, this characteristic is become more and more rare – we need to teach our students the right way, now while they are young.
“Courage is the most important out of all the virtues, for without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.” Maya Angelou.

In order to ensure these important skills can be integrated into our busy timetables, this resource has been designed to make it as easy to deliver as possible. It includes a structured PowerPoint that guides the class through discussions about courage and effective skills on facing their fears and taking positive action. No prior knowledge or experience from you is required! On top of this, the PowerPoint text is editable so you can modify the content to suit your students’ needs, should you wish.
Also included are bonus graphic organizers which are supplementary to the PowerPoint: they work as a helpful tool for students to record their thoughts in an aesthetically pleasing way that can then be used for bulletin board displays etc. You will also find a set of discussion task cards to spark conversation and thoughts on courage: these can be printed off for each group of students, or they can be used in whole class discussion – it is up to you.
So help build your students’ courage and encourage them to be all that you know they can be!
