Values Education in the New Jersey Secondary Curriculum.
Olmo, Barbara G.
The status of the affective domain in the secondary social studies curriculum in New Jersey is reported as part of a follow-up study. Qestionnaires administered to principals, social studies teachers, and department heads in 50 public senior high schools in 1964 were re-administered in 1974. Results on the following topics are reviewed: the focus of revision and student attitudes, aspects of value education, and the nature of secondary curriculum revision. The emphasis on structuring the curriculum through interrelated concepts and organizing subject matter to include behavioral sciences as seen in the last decade is reflected in the questionnaire responses. The data show that there is much uniformity of response to various aspects of values education. A number of teachers and department heads responded that specific values, morals, and attitudes should be taught as part of the social studies curriculum. Relatively few educators reported increased attention to the affective domain in classroom interaction. (Author/KSM)
