Hargraves, Richard B.
The Quinmester course "Values" includes nine areas of study designed to develop student awareness and development of a personal value system: (1) consideration of a positive self-image as part of a system of values; (2) differentiation between acts of tolerance and intolerance; (3) investigation of the role mental preparedness based on positive learning experiences plays in developing a system of values; (4) generalization from data that freedom based on personal independence is part of developing a system of values; (5) synthesization of the concept that justice based on truth and reconciliation is integral to developing values; (6) demonstration of a developing awareness of aesthetics and their role in a value system; (7) identification of the variables of good and evil; (8) examination of the role of religion; and (9) proposal of reasons for attaining social tranquility fostered by peace and nonviolence in pursuit of a value system. These activities are based on a study of literature, including "The Man without a Country,""I Am a Rock," and "A Separate Peace." This course outline includes a 14-page listing of resource materials.
