The majority of this lesson is spent on giving students the opportunity and encouragement to read their Constitution in class.
After every student has had the opportunity to read their Constitution, their N.O.V.A. instructor selects one student to read their Constitution at the N.O.V.A. Certification Program that will be held in the next week or two. The student’s N.O.V.A. instructor also chooses several students who did exceptionally well on their Constitutions who will receive a special Constitution Award at the Certification Program as well.
NOTE: Earning a Certification of Achievement Award from the N.O.V.A. Principles program is not an entitlement. Only students who complete all of the requirements that were explained to them at the beginning of the program as outlined on the N.O.V.A. Contract they signed are eligible to earn this special award.
Parents: One of the requirements for parents to become an “Elite” member of the N.O.V.A. Parent Pack is to write your own personal N.O.V.A. Constitution explained as follows:
a. Opportunities you want to take advantage of to help you become successful.
b. Things you want to avoid.
c. Things you value.
d. How the N.O.V.A. program has helped lead you to your path of excellence.
