How do I implement the Courage Curriculum in my classroom?
We know that no one understands the unique needs and character of your classroom better than
you do. For this reason, our program is designed to be flexible and easily adapted to best fit your
classroom. Each participating teacher will receive six newly-updated curriculum guides (which
correspond with the six novels featured on our curriculum) as well as a guide for sharing Max’s
story and facilitating discussions about courage. These guides are aligned with the Common Core
State Standards and include chapter summaries, pre- and post-reading activities, writing prompts,
vocabulary, and discussion questions. We hope you will feel empowered to use what works for
you, knowing there is absolutely no requirement to use all materials. Some teachers will use all six
novels in the classrooms, others will supplement from their own reading lists.
What if I need featured curriculum novels for my classroom?
If your school or classroom needs any of the six novels featured on our curriculum, please contact
Meredith ([email protected], 617-373-7399). We work throughout the year to raise
funds for this express purpose, and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
How can I learn more about the essay program?
Stay tuned! We will be sharing a separate document later this fall pertaining specifically to the
essay writing process, our non-traditional essay contest and what happens if one of your students’
essays is chosen for publication in The Courage of Children. If you have specific questions you
would like answered, please reach out to our office.
Please be advised that event dates are subject to change. As always, please do not hesitate to
contact Meredith (617-373-7399, [email protected]) with any questions you may have.
