    " The choice teachers have is not whether to teach values but to decide
    which values they will transmit and how they will transmit them." Lasley
    and Biddle

    I just finished my Character Education through Literature and Language Arts
    workshop day. When I think of a book like Song of Solomon I agree with
    Linda Stimson. It would be difficult for me personally to allow that to be
    read in my class as an assignment. I am uncomfortable with the language so I
    would convey that either in words or body language.

    I was thinking about different exercises or assignments that we give that
    have to deal with character education. We have all probably done a heroism
    type activity. To Kill a Mocking Bird is where I would use that. Any
    thoughts on incorporating character ed into our study of novels. I think as
    English teachers we fit it in easier than most of the other areas of study.
    I'd love to hear some ideas.
