This resource was designed to be used in conjunction with Cambridge IGCE Physics unit 'remote sensing'. The content relates to Communications. It could be used for any A Level Physics course that incorporates Communication Physics.
This resource contains seven lectures (lessons) about character development based on the book by David Brooks called ‘The Road to Character’. Each lecture focuses on a different aspect of character development with particular reference to a historical figure from the ‘Great Generation’ (born pre-1940)in the United States;
The Summoned Self - Frances Perkins
Self Examination - Dorothy Day
Self Conquest - Dwight Eisenhower
Self Respect - Asa Philip Randolph
Self Mastery - George Marshall
Self Determination - Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan
Big Self and Little Self - Johnny Unitas and Joe Namath
The lectures focus on how different people developed through their early life, college career, working life and their life achievement. The key is the dedication of their lives to humble service and not self glory and how they have impacted the world. These lectures were developed for a Year 8 lecture series.
