In this activity…

Students develop their vocabulary by classifying the 24 different character strengths.


Use the slide deck to guide your introduction of character strengths and virtues, and to provide students with a brief description of each of the 24 character strengths, similar to what you reviewed in the READY section.

As you work through the character strengths, allow students to share their thoughts and experiences with some of the strengths before revealing the formal definition and take breaks for questions.

Wrap-up this part of the presentation by sharing the sailboat analogy for a strengths-based approach sailboat, which emphasizes the need to simultaneously address strengths and weaknesses.
