Stephen Covey’s 2008 book discusses how character traits and practices that arise from them can be taught to school children. Along with the author’s “7 habits of highly effective people,” select schools taught life competencies suggested by businesses and the community at large. The goal was to shift students from a fact-based curriculum to one that fosters the development of traits and skills such as integrity, initiative, teamwork, and collaboration. Covey’s familiar voice conveys gentle enthusiasm, autocratic conviction, and an immense respect for everyone involved in this educational revolution. He sounds fully engaged as he unfolds the foundations and applications of the movement. The production is an inspiring reminder of how thoughtful, courageous educators can help children become more effective people. T.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2010]
