Speaker: Roger James Leslie, PhD

In an effort to reach the whole child with increasingly restrictive standardized testing, education leaders expanded the traits required in character education curriculum to include intrapersonal skills that empower children to set, pursue, and achieve personal goals. This prompted a research study that determined that Child Choice Award-winning books, where educators choose nominees and children select winners, contain thousands of models of the new SUCCESS traits, giving librarians 123 resources, many of which are likely already in their collections, that meet standards for school library collection development to recommend to teachers, use in their own lessons, and support collaborative units.
