1 Introduction

Character-Based Education (CBE) or character-based learning

Some (provisional) definitions:

“Character based learning (CBL) attempts to do at least two things simultaneously: provide support for high school students who have life & learning challenges – and are at risk of school failure and anti-social behavior – and teach academic content that will allow them to fulfill state-mandated goals for learning, so that they can graduate with a diploma. CBL was developed as an expression of practical compassion for students who are incarcerated, in foster or institutional care, homeless shelters, hospitals, or diversion schools” (Creating a lesson plan for character based learning about environmental virtue ethics
