More than 125 teachers, counselors and principals kicked off the summer at the “Take PACE to the Next Level: Embedding Character Education into School Climate, Curriculum and Common Core” workshop, June 20, 2013. At this all-day professional development workshop participants shared their character education ideas, explored ways to integrate PACE into their lesson planning, discussed the positive impact of character education on school culture and enjoyed a keynote presentation by Washington State Schools of Character Award winning South Kitsap School District. The event was sponsored by Whitworth University, Cameron-Reilly Construction and Quiznos. Participants raved about the workshop and left energized to take PACE to the next level in their classrooms and schools! Below are some great ideas that came out of workshop.
