The instructional objectives of values education to be taught in the K-12 Utah public schools are outlined and cross-referenced to each subject area in the curriculum. It is the responsibility of the schools to help students clarify perceptions and values with respect to self and society. The major categories of values education goals are: rights and responsibilities, American values, international values, refinement of values (i.e., to develop a systematic process of forming a values system that has life-span durability), nature of conflict, positive self-concept, and societal cement (i.e., to develop a commitment to a core of values that serve as the cement of society). More specific goals under each of these categories are outlined for the elementary, intermediate, junior high, and high school grades. The bulk of the publication then cross-references each of the specific goals to the subject areas in which they are to be taught. Subject areas include communications and reading, mathematics, science, social studies, creative arts, health and physical education, safety and driver education, career and vocations, and the teacher advisory orientation success program. The appendix discusses Utah legislative requirements concerning values education. (RM)
