Week #12 and Four Character Traits we Emphasize

Character development is a big deal at Acton Academy Lakewood. It’s an essential part of our philosophy of learning, which drives everything from the way we set up the studio, to the systems we create, and the Socratic discussions we have.
The week was chock full of working with our hands to celebrate Ancient Greece, and the usual core skill work that we prioritize each morning.

Clear thinking leads to good decisions; 
Good decisions lead to the the right habits;
The right habits lead to character;
And character becomes destiny.

There are hundreds of positive character traits. Which ones are on our mind the most when we say “character development” at Acton Academy Lakewood?

1: strength of mind that enables a person to encounter danger or bear pain or adversity with courage

Using a suboptimal tool to replace a wheel.

1: firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values: incorruptibility
Writing the Greek Alphabet on the wax tablet she made.

1: capable of being or becoming for a particular use, purpose, or situation
Making salt dough that will eventually become a map of Greece.

1: to experience great pleasure or delight
Sparks (preK-K) especially appreciated the rain last week.
