Teaching Values through Children's Literature.
Ramp, Ellen; Ridout, Susan Ramp
Suggesting that reading teachers can use children's literature as a vehicle for teaching values, this paper presents an annotated bibliography of children's literature and lesson plans that can help teach the values of honesty, respect, responsibility, compassion, self-discipline, perseverance, and giving. After a brief description of the values, the paper presents a 51-item annotated bibliography of children's literature (big books, chapter books, or picture books) published between 1940 and 1993 categorized by the value taught. Two versions of a directed reading/singing lesson (one for younger children, the other for older children) based on R. Munsch's "Love You Forever"; and a lesson plan on J. Steptoe's "Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters" are attached. Contains nine references. (RS)
