Cross-Cultural Inquiry: Value Clarification Exercises. A Center for Latin American Studies Curriculum Report.
Casteel, J. Doyle; Hallman, Clemens
The first booklet in a series of pilot materials developed by the University of Florida's Center for Latin American Studies is presented. Ten examples illustrating an integrated, multidisciplinary, and practical values clarification approach to teaching about Latin America are provided. The approach may be used by teachers in the languages, various social sciences, and humanities. Contents in this teacher handbook include discussions on value sheets (planned and written student activities), elements of value sheets, and value sheets as mediating links to a number of dimensions of teaching. The major portion of the work discusses and presents samples of five formats of the value sheet: standard, forced-choice, affirmative, rank-order, and classification format. Emphasis is on providing short, incomplete situational case studies in which the student is forced to project himself into a decision-making situation and then, through the value clarification questions that follow, to justify his decision.
