Abstract:School programs that focus on children’s pre-existing positive qualities (i.e., character strengths) may be well positioned to foster student engagement. Elementary school-based character strengths research is limited, however, and there remains much to be investigated regarding classroom implementation, particularly implementation by the teacher. Impeding this research area is a lack of evidence-based resources to support teachers during implementation. Accordingly, the present study developed and evaluated an online character strengths toolbox to facilitate autonomous teacher delivery of a classroom strengths intervention. It was hypothesized that (1) the toolbox would enable teachers to deliver a character strengths intervention and (2) that this would enhance engagement in an elementary student population.
