Values and the Valuing Process. Social Studies for the Elementary School. Proficiency Module #5.
The purposes of this teacher training module are to: 1) develop awareness and understanding of the affective domain of learning, values, and the valuing process, and 2) develop competency in using teaching strategies designed to help children clarify their values. A sequence of activities is designed to develop enabling and terminal competencies in writing a value clarification lesson plan, in demonstrating an affective teaching strategy, in classifying affective pupil behaviors, in writing behavioral objectives, in determining the stage of the valuing process, and in identifying several alternatives of behavior. The first part of the document deals with an examination of Bloom's taxonomy of the affective domain. The valuing process is examined in the second part of the module. Presented in the 3rd section is a teaching strategy built around an unfinished story that will help children identify alternatives to a problem situation and to examine possible consequences of each alternative. Appendices include additional activities and a bibliography of materials for teaching about values. Related modules are SO 005 443 through SO 005 449. (Author/SJM)
