This course is a literary study of additional basic values; it examines the consequences of having or lacking mercy, patience, grace, gratitude, accountability, loyalty, patriotism, and self-sufficiency. Lessons include instructor-graded portfolio activities, which should be submitted as a whole prior to requesting the final. This is the third course in a three-part Character Education: Exploring Values series (XPLR 041, 043, and 045); however, any of the courses may be taken independently of the others.
