Teaching Strategies for Value Education in Social Studies: A Theoretical Position.
Fraenkel, Jack R.
The systematic design of appropriate teaching strategies to bring about desired values is crucially important, and badly needed, in social studies education. Teachers cannot leave the accomplishment of affective objectives to chance or to learning activities planned mainly for cognitive goals. Examples of an affective strategy that develops empathy for and identification with individuals placed in a conflict situation and an affective strategy that promotes sensitivity to the feelings and needs of others are developed for elementary age children. Instructional objectives are stated in each example and a question sequence outlined which enables students to analyze alternatives, predict consequences, identify feelings, empathize with those feelings, and draw conclusions about how people in general would feel in such a situation.
