Hartoonian, H. Michael
This paper presents a rationale for a disclosure approach to value analysis and describes the components of this approach, which involves student construction of value profiles of his own mythic thought, or mental framework, vis a vis a specified concept. The rationale is discussed in terms of the relationship between value study and mythic thought, delineating the components needed to complement the present state of the art relative to value study in social studies education analyzing mythic thought and narrative explanation, and outlining an approach to value education through the use of narratives to investigate value positions. The components of the disclosure approach include the explanatory power of the narrative and mythic thought of the author, the use of metaphor, the nature of value concepts, construction and use of value continua, development of a value profile, and augmentation of personal definitions. The example given of the process, which includes a classification scheme for value analysis utilizing clarification questions for use in small groups, is based on the concept of justice. (Author/KSM)
