Working with Value and Moral Teaching Strategies.
Hartoonian, H. Michael
Four models for interpreting values education strategies are provided. Six examples form curriculum projects are analyzed in light of three of these conceptual models. The first model categorizes values approaches by whether they describe, analyze, or advocate a particular value position. The second model categorizes values approaches by whether they appeal to psychological or logical precepts. The third model categorizes values approaches by whether they manifest a valuative-objective orientation or a valuative-subjective orientation. A fourth model attempts to synthesize the three other models in order to correct deficiencies in all of them. This disclosure approach suggests a new philosophical synthesis among such concepts as subjective, descriptive, psychological, and logical. It posits that values cannot be adequately explained anymore than the process of cultural function can, without a careful consideration of the individual and collective human being. Because of the metaphoric nature of language, the explanatory form of the narrative is useful to provide some form of concept definition for effective communication. Examples of the application of each model are provided. (Author/DE)
