The virtues are a list of 52 attributes that each individual has as an inner resource. Some of these attributes are easier to find within ourselves and others, but they are all available within each of us. The language of virtues is a way to acknowledge personal strengths and the strengths of others. It is a way to focus on the positive. The language of the virtues is integrated into the life of the classroom through journaling, games, spelling words, classroom-meeting discussions and used as a resource for problem solving, conflict resolution, and behavior issues.
