Character Development Program Secondary Lessons
Below, you will find the Secondary lessons of the Medal of Honor Character Development Program. You can search and sort to find a lesson or download a PDF of all the lessons.
If you are looking to introduce your 6th - 12th grade students to the Medal of Honor and the Character Development Program, the Foundational Lessons (A1-A11) are a great place to start. From there, the lessons are grouped by value but can each be used independently. If a lesson has a recommended prerequisite, that will be included.
Keep in mind that the lessons are designed to be flexible. We know that you are the expert in your classroom, so we encourage you to adjust as needed: do only some of the activities, swap out the suggested Recipient Living History, or spread a single lesson out over a week. Some teachers build a whole course around the lessons, and others pull lessons to use around Veterans Day. Some schools have fully embraced the program and have it in every classroom, while some teachers use it independently. We want you to find what works for you!Check Out Elementary Lessons
