Virtues at Mountain View

by Mrs. D. Haziri

At the Elementary campus all teachers have a binder inside their classroom for reference. Inside this binder is a collection of virtue materials that are displayed throughout all classrooms. Materials such as the Almadina pledge, classroom posters, checklist and references to virtue based literature. Here are some great examples for you.

Teachers are all on board doing their part and play a very important role as they:

  • Act as a model and mentor
  • Create a moral community in the classroom
  • Teach values through the curriculum
  • Encourage moral reflection
  • Teach conflict resolution

Teachers & students also:

  • Use encouragers, not drainers
  • Demonstrate leadership through exposure and participation in our Almadina Peace Keepers program
  • Receive ongoing learning through 2 minute mini lessons everyday

Assemblies

A team of teachers are responsible for organizing each assembly. Teachers join one of the five virtue committees (conscience, acceptance, respect, empathy and self-control). They are responsible for organizing a school wide activity and morning announcements.

At our virtue assemblies, students have the opportunity to showcase each virtue through drama, song, and various language activities.

Research shows that when students are in a safe and caring learning environment, they tend to take greater academic risks as they feel more comfortable and ready to learn.
