The Courage to Forgive: Educating Elementary School Children About Forgiveness is a Social Emotional Learning (SEL)/Character Education Curriculum Guide for 4th and 5th grade students ages 9-12.
The Courage to Forgive: Educating Elementary School Children About Forgiveness was written for school educators, counselors, and homeschooling parents to use with their 4th and 5th grade students (ages 9-12), as a form of social-emotional learning and/or character education. This curriculum can also be used by religious education leaders and by educators in afterschool programs.
The goal of this curriculum is for students to learn about forgiveness, including what it is and is not, how to forgive, contexts appropriate for forgiveness, and benefits of forgiveness, in order to deal with anger and other negative feelings after experiencing a deep and unfair hurt or conflict with another person. Concepts such as perspective taking, kindness, and the inherent worth of all individuals are also discussed in relation to forgiveness.
Although this curriculum was written specifically with 4th and 5th grade students in mind, it can be used with older (middle school students) or younger students, as activities can be modified as necessary. Adults may also find this curriculum helpful in their understanding and practice of forgiveness. There are 16 lessons included in this specific curriculum that are each approximately 45 minutes in duration.
