Harvard EdCast: How Schools Teach CharacterBy Matt Weber
In his new release from Harvard Education Press, Character Compass, Scott Seider, Ed.M.’04, Ed.D.’08, assistant professor at Boston University, examines three high-performing Boston schools that have emphasized character development — although different aspects of character — as part of their missions. On November 1, Seider will be talking about his book at a CMEI Colloquium at the Ed School.
In this edition of the EdCast, Seider shares his research on how powerful school culture can point students toward success.
