Character Playbook: Building Healthy Relationships

The National Medal of Honor Griffin Institute has sponsored three new videos  which are integrated throughout the Character Playbook: Building Healthy Relationships  course. The videos, designed to help guide students' decision-making and choices, focus on the Medal of Honor values of courage, commitment, and integrity. The three videos use true-to-life scenarios and the skills learned in the digital lessons to encourage and inspire students to answer the questions: What values are important to me? What choices do I want to make even when no one is watching and especially when it is difficult?  Classroom extension activities include inspirational stories with worksheets about Medal of Honor Recipients Patrick Brady, Roy Benavidez, and Melvin Morris.
