Valuing Youth. Leader's Notebook.
Glashagel, Jerry; And Others
This leader's notebook is an attempt to present value education tools for persons working with elementary age children in various YMCA settings. These tools are value education strategies designed to stimulate discussion by the children and to help create a learning environment. The strategies are presented in two ways. First, a series of basic strategies we call exploring strategies, choosing strategies, focusing strategies, and linking strategies are organized around several fundamental value issues: cooperation, respect, self-awareness, achievement, and celebration. The second set of strategies, for specific value issues and value-laden settings, are organizaed around several special YMCA settings: an overnight, the Christmas holidays, camping, coaching, and the international scene. Finally the subject of alcohol use and abuse is dealt with through a series of strategies. This notebook also contains an explanation of value education theory and information on leadership training tools. (Author/ND)
