    Character education seems to work best with consistency. If it is used throughout a school,in every classroom, by the guidance counselor when he/she does weekly lessons, by administration, etc. The language I use as a teacher in my classroom, for instance, makes a difference. When someone is honest, I make sure to give specific feedback and praise like "I really appreciate your honesty" (often in front of the class for others to hear). The children (even my second graders) start to use this language after awhile too. I once visited a school that even named their hallways each a different character trait such as responsibility, honesty, respect, etc. Good luck with your research!
