20 Posters to illustrate how caring character comes through:
~ two-footed questions that jump start both sides of the brain
~ multiple intelligence tasks that turn students into teachers
~ all your students need to grapple with ethical issues


Challenges learner thinking - What if the popular 20Q (game show)converted into steps for a new culture of character that includes caring?

Two-footed questions here will improve the odds for building good character in your learning community in several doable ways. The two feet simply add action to asking, and include reflections on both sides of the brain for life-changing solutions. They can be used for ethical discussion, and for deciding how history, literature or other career fields differ with ethical questions get probed by any or all who care.


Students experience how questioners arrive at the best answers by doing whatever it takes to help people move from traditional limitations into possibilities for finer characters in a new era.
Rather than blame others for violence, and unethical practices, all questions in the 20 posters here involve questioners in finding doable and novel character-building solutions.

Diverse students will discover together through 20 posters that ask:

1. What sinks trust and what builds trust for you?
