During the two years of teaching full time, I adapted the ideas in ESP Character Training to fit groups ranging from kindergarten to high school. For example, when I covered obedience for the elementary children I role played doing what you are told, when you are told and with a good attitude. As explained in the book, I would not do one of those and ask the children if I obeyed. We then memorized the definition by dividing into three groups. Each group had one part of the definition so when I pointed to them they said there section.
The class for the middle school age was very similar, although I added a little more punch to the definition learning. After breaking up into groups, I had them yell WHAT, WHEN or WITH. We started slowly and got faster and faster. This age loves competition so the cheering loudly was a hit.
For the high school age we discussed obedience. First we casually talked about what they thought obedience looked like. Secondly, we read all the verses from the book about obedience. Did anyone’s picture of obedience change? Then, I gave them our definition and asked them what area, “what, when or with” was hardest for them. Next we looked at why that part of obedience was hard. Lastly, we discussed how we could grow in being better at that area of obedience.
In general, the younger children seem to like physical interaction, while the older children want discussion interaction. Both want interaction though, verses just being told about something.
