The aim of the Character Lab is to advance both the science and the practice of character development. I was one of 15 teachers selected to be a part of a groundbreaking project that brings together outstanding teachers and world-class researchers to create and execute curriculum around self-control. Working with researchers Angela Duckworth (2013 MacArthur Foundation Fellow and professor at the University of Pennsylvania) and Ethan Kross (professor at the University of Michigan), the team wrote 14 lessons to translate cutting-edge research into curriculum for use in middle-school classrooms nationwide.
Spent the fall on 2017 piloting the curriculum with a group of 50 8th graders, and provided detailed feedback on the lesson plans before they are released to a wider audience.
