Acquiring Ethical Guidelines for Individual Self Governance (AEGIS)
Character Education

As of June 2007 no studies of Acquiring Ethical Guidelines for Individual Self Governance (AEGIS) were found that fell within the scope of the Character Education review protocol and met WWC design standards. Therefore, the WWC is unable to draw any research based conclusions about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of Acquiring Ethical Guidelines for Individual Self Governance (AEGIS) to improve outcomes in this area.
Acquiring Ethical Guidelines for Individual Self Governance (AEGIS) was developed for students in elementary schools (grades K–6) to teach ethical behavior around seven concepts: worth and potential, rights and responsibilities, fairness and justice, effort and excellence, care and consideration, personal integrity, and social responsibility. Thirty-five lessons are provided to teach and integrate the seven core concepts (units) across curricular topics at each grade level. AEGIS uses a five-step process in each lesson to give students the opportunity to learn and practice the lessons (stimulate student interest, model the concept, integrate the concept, link school learning to parents, and extend the lesson to life outside school).
