The Valuing Process in the Classroom: The Role of the English Teacher in Facilitating Student Growth in the Valuing Process.
Costello, Marjorie Florence
This study describes one component of a teacher education program designed to generate in the prospective teacher of English an awareness of values and the valuing process and of his own role in facilitating the process. Chapter 1 defines the scope, purposes, and procedures of the study; chapter 2 examines the historical and continuing connection of values and education; chapter 3 offers the beginning teacher an orientation to the need for teaching the valuing process in the classroom; chapter 4 establishes the need for awareness, on the part of the teacher, of value transmission and communication, and examines the role the teacher can play as communicator, transmitter, and facilitator in the valuing process; chapter 5 establishes the English class as the optimal setting for the nurturing of the valuing process among high school students; chapter 6 demonstrates some of the ways literature may be used as a resource in promoting the valuing process; chapter 7 identifies the special responsibility of the secondary English teacher to develop awareness; and chapter 8 states a personal conviction regarding the importance of valuing and the need for stressing the valuing process. Appendixes containing both a teaching model and a list of visited schools, and a selected bibliography are included. (Author/RB)
