Character Minutes

Grades K-5

These minute long clips focus on positive character traits, such as work ethic, perseverance, fortitude, and the ability to work as part of a team. Each segment features a prominent person in the community, including Jack Leggett, baseball coach Clemson University; Patti Just, former anchor at WJWJ-TV; and Charles Austin, former chief of police in Columbia.

The short, concise programs, each exactly one minute in duration, contain valuable content that could be used in a weekly school news program, as a writing activity in a language arts class, or as a discussion topic. (From our Streamline collection)
