Breaking the Boundaries: Using the Writing Experience To Examine the Conflicts between Personal and "American" Democratic Ideals in the Schoolroom.
Hamberger, Nan Marie; Moore, Robert L.
Noting that one way to break boundaries that separate one person from another is to use the writing experience to identify and analyze values, this paper presents guidelines for defining values, discussing values, and teaching about values. Teaching and discussion aids are provided to enhance the examination of narratives and biographies, which include: "A Common Core of Values" developed for use in the public school of Baltimore County, Maryland; "Rokeach's Value List" (l973); a diagram of Key Questions for Discussing Values; Additional Questions for Discussing Values; a list of "Activities for Teaching About Values," and a Personal Identity/Social Identity chart. (Contains 18 references.) (NH)
