1-day online etiquette curriculum for children, Pre-K through Highschool 

2021 Dates:
January 15th, 2021
February 19th, 2021
March 19th, 2021

If you are seeking character education curriculum for students, our one-day, Cultivating Character Conference offers a life skills program for pre-k through high school.   The 1100 page character education curriculum is divided into 5 manuals, each with 10 lessons, except high school (16), and is written to be taught by an instructor in a 50 minute classroom period.  

Let our President, Peggy Newfield, and staff guide you through the talking points of each one of the manuals.  In addition, you will also experience an “etiquette online manners lunch” so that you can see if all of “mom’s rules” are still the same.  (A little humor never hurts.)

With the significance that bullying and social media play in today’s society, Cultivating Character focuses on increasing important life skills such as a student’s self-confidence, tolerance, and respect for others.  Printable handouts on a flash drive accompany each lesson.

Cultivating Character Conferences are held online each month in Atlanta, GA.  A certificate of completion is issued from the American School of Protocol®  at the end of the day.  

Online Training

Due to the pandemic, we are currently offering the seminar as online training for just $1395.  The fees include a USB drive with the manuals in digital format. If a hard copy is requested add $100 to the total cost ($1495).

Our founder, Peggy Newfield, has personally studied and trained over 10,000 children. The lessons have been precisely written from her research and hands on experience. The series does not simply scratch the surface, it provides an in-depth curriculum in order to set the child up for academic and lifelong success.

A.  Yes, our curriculum aligns itself with the definition according to the National Association for the Education of Young Children.  Our curriculum is age appropriate for the individual child.  Each of our manuals has been carefully constructed to target core lessons appropriate and necessary for children, Pre-K through 12th grade.

Q. Are a variety of instructional approaches used?

A.  Yes, each lesson includes different types of instructional approaches.  Our syllabus incorporates handouts, scenarios, and homework assignments for the children.  We recognize that each child has their own way of learning and therefore the lessons incorporate various types of methods to target all children.

Q. Does the curriculum actively involve all children?

A.  Yes, our curriculum actively involves all children and provides the tools to keep the students fully engaged at all times. The curriculum allows the children to interact in different ways and to learn through observations and hands-on activities.

Q. Are there clear goals for learning?

A.  Yes, at the beginning of every manual, we provide a clear outline of the objectives for the lesson.  Each individual lesson begins with stating the goals for the children. At the end of the lesson we include an outline for the goals that should have been achieved by the children.
