Through training, program planning, and evaluation in several states, 4-H has been a partner in the National CHARACTER COUNTS! Coalition. This article describes the results of one new approach to character education, training for public school teachers through their in-service education requirement. The instructional approach satisfied all six process standards of the National Staff development Council. The results of a post-test only questionnaire showed that the participants viewed the training as helpful, with the majority planning to include at least one new character education technique in their teaching repertoire. Implications, including the need for additional teacher training, are discussed.
