BNICE University - Guides & Lesson Plans
BNICE with Chris French offers sustainability in a number of ways. One of which is by way of guides and lesson plans that can aid the classroom. In the links below, feel free to download the discussion tools "How to BNICE" and / or the "Elementary BNICE University" tools focused on 4 pillars of character.
The key in these materials is to get the kids openly discussing and thinking critically about character and what it means to them.
How to BNICE
Sometimes people say that being nice is often easier said than done. The whole point of the BNICE Initiative is to make it as easily done, as easily said. It’s a personal commitment to be more morally aware. The BNICE Initiative is for all ages. This guide isn’t meant to be read from cover to cover in sequential order. You can pick a phrase or topic and simply go from there. Just a little bit as often as you can think of it, is more than enough. It revolves around Random Acts In Niceness (RAIN) that you can do with Anyone, Anywhere and at Anytime.

Changing your schools culture into one that you’ll be 100% proud of isn’t an overnight
process. You HAVE to be prepared for the long game and although one person can
inspire, it takes the ownership of students, faculty and parents to make the necessary
changes that you and everybody can be proud of.
