Values and the Curriculum. A Report of the Fourth International Curriculum Conference. School for the 70's Auxiliary Series.
Carr, William G., Ed.
This report (the fourth volume of the auxiliary series, "Schools for the 70's and Beyond") contains a 25-page synopsis of the conference, the texts of papers presented at the conference, and lists of participants. The papers, which take up the major portion of the document, are subsumed under three headings: 1) "Behaving and Believing," a paper by William F. O'Neill and the replies to it; 2) "Values and the Curriculum," a group of general session addresses; 3) "The Choices Before Us," speeches presented at a panel on curriculum reform. The speeches attempted to identify the values implicit in the educational systems of the three participating countries--England, Canada, and the United States, the process by which a human being acquires values, and the ways in which the school curriculum can be modified to include both implicit and explicit education in values. (Related documents in this series are ED 031 452, ED 037 405, ED 038 332, and SP 004 198.) (RT)
