This is one of several individualized learning packets to help students clarify the concept of values. The stated behavioral objectives are that students will: 1) relate their actions to their values; 2) predict the outcome of a survey; 3) conduct, compare, and draw conclusions from a survey; 4) identify some of their values; 5) compare American values with values of Japanese society; and, 6) relate values to behavior patterns. Each of four lessons contains one or more of these major ideas: 1) individuals develop a set of values as they grow up; these values reflect those of the society and the environment that surrounds the individual; 2) surveys, like the one included here as an example, are used as evidence in understanding the interpreting behavior patterns of people; 3) changes occur in values as social and economic conditions change in a society; 4) behavior patterns are shaped by the values that people hold; and, 5) values differ from society to society. A chapter is included from Journey to Washington by Daniel Inouye as a reading. (Author/SBE)
