I created the Character Shields Graphics to spark conversation about social and personal responsibility in class. Each shield represents a character trait that promotes a healthy, productive and safe learning environment in physical education. I’ll refer to the shields throughout my lessons as a reminder to my students of the agreed-upon behaviours that we all strive to demonstrate both inside and outside of physical education class. Plus, they just look cool in the gym!
