During his term as Teacher-in-Residence at the Jubilee Centre, Matt Bawden worked on the Department for Education funded Teaching Character Through Subjects project. The resources were launched online on Friday 15th April 2016, and since the launch, Matt has written for SecEd to explain what the resources are and how the project came about.
Teaching Character Through Subjects worked across England with 29 teachers from 28 state funded schools to create an innovative resource for building character within 14 subjects across the school curriculum. The materials were developed by teachers, for teachers, and trialled in schools, and are presented below as suites of resources for each subject. Each suite provides editable examples of ways character can be taught through secondary curriculum subjects. Each suite can be adapted to fit different contexts and serve as inspiration for the development of additional materials that further explore teaching character through subjects and the secondary school curriculum.
This article concludes a mini-series from SecEd on character education. Read the other articles in the series here.
