Heartwood Ethics Curriculum for Children

Heartwood Institute's mission is to promote the understanding and practice of ethical values that are the foundation of community among all people, with particular emphasis on children and families and the understanding of seven universal attributes: Courage, Loyalty, Justice, Respect, Hope, Honesty, and Love. These attributes constitute a holistic framework for strong community among all people. Heartwood offers powerful literature-based ethics education resources to children, school, and families.

Although the non-profit organization, Heartwood, is no longer in existence, the Heartwood Team is pleased and excited that their message continues through this archive on the Carnegie Mellon University Children's School website.
