Role Models: Examples of Character and Leadership serves as the textbook for the curriculum and is one of the essential lesson plans. As such, almost all schools order classroom set(s) for the students to read. This book is designed to inspire students to do better and be better. We believe the lack of role models in a child’s life creates a void that we can begin to address in this book. The Role Models textbook highlights 17 individuals who exemplify the different character traits covered in the curriculum. This book offers a mix of historical figures that have stood the test of time like Amelia Earhart, Booker T. Washington and Helen Keller, as well as contemporary figures who are worthy of our admiration, such as Pat Tillman, Sonia Sotomayor and Oprah Winfrey. Learn more about the textbook .
