En este artículo, examinamos la historia de la noción de educación que forma del carácter de la persona (en inglés se llama "character education"), porque creemos que ese tipo de pedagogía debe ser integral a la disciplina de educación. Primero, presentamos historias sobre los mayores contribuidores a la educación que forma el carácter de la persona de los siglos XVIII, XIX, y XX. Después, enfocamos en las ideas más destacadas de ese campo de las últimos cinco décadas del siglo XX. Al final, examinamos los desarrollos más recientes en ese campo de educación, con un interés particular en los programas que promueven este tipo de currículo.

This paper describes a research project that is the result of an ongoing partnership between a regional university and a small rural county in the southeastern United States. The goal of this community engagement initiative is to make purposeful connections between research, best practices, community needs, and community goals.

Education researchers collaborated with the local school system to uncover the Best Practice Language (BPL) within a rural school district. For the purposes of this study, BPL is language that resonates with others and is used by members of the organization with consistent and promising outcomes. Furthermore, BPL is language with a meaningful design or pattern; and a resonating, inspiring, promising, and transformational quality. All five schools in the district were studied (2 elementary schools, 1 middle school, 2 high schools) and data were gathered using both quantitative and qualitative methods.

With the BPL methodology, members of an organization are challenged to seek better ways to convey thoughts, ideas, priorities, functions, tasks, and even feelings. Members can begin to develop a heightened awareness of their own language and the “language of practice” around them. Structures within the organizational context can also begin to change, and every member of the organization is given a voice in the process.

The world’s youth will have a significant role to play if we are to bring about the widespread behavioural change needed to shift towards more sustainable lifestyles and consumption habits. It is important for young people to understand that behind over-consumption lies increased exploitation of resources, rising poverty, widening inequalities and persistent conflicts, all of which will worsen with climate change and eventually will minimize their opportunities for a better and sustainable future. The poorest of the poor, those who cannot consume enough to meet their basic needs, are the worst hit by climate change. Most of these are young people under 24, who make up nearly half of the world’s population, with most living in developing countries.

The boycott is one of the most powerful, time-tested tactics that social movements have at their disposal. History offers many examples of people joining together to exercise their power as consumers in support of movements for social justice, civil rights, and workers' rights. By calling for people to not spend their money on a target good or service, boycotts can aid these movements by drawing on a wider base of supporters who would otherwise be unable to participate.

This lesson examines the historical development of the boycott as a tactic - with examples of its use by both progressives and conservatives - and looks at some recent boycotts that are related to hot-button political issues.
