Because it's a good idea to unearth prior understandings (and misconceptions) when beginning any new learning journey, I'm posting this to invite my student/colleagues to share their own perceptions at this point. So have at it, folks: How do children become good?

How do children become good?
This week I begin the first of two workshops devoted to "Children's and Adolescents' Moral Development" with teachers from public, private and parochial schools. In the course of our week-long encounter, we'll think about psychological, philosophical, pedagogical and personal perspectives on how children be and become good people. We'll explore in depth the role of teachers and schools in fostering goodness.
