What is CBL?
The Character Based Literacy Program is a character education project, and it is a literacy project which promotes school practices
by which school pupils become good people, good citizens. CBL utilizes the English Language Arts (ELA) curriculum because literacy
is fundamental to success in school and in life, for all students. It is also a natural place to pursue questions of value and
character as they occur in literature and writing. This program is mapped to the Common Core State Standards in ELA. A paid subscription
is required to access lesson plans and other resources. For more information or subscription inquiries, please email Kim McCauley at
