Selected Values Clarification Strategies and Elementary School Pupils' Self Concept, School Sentiment and Reading Achievement.
Kelley, Felonese Wilson
The effect of the use of selected values clarification strategies on self-concept, school sentiment, and reading achievement was investigated in a sample of 240 pupils in grades four, five, and six, of two elementary schools. Teachers in the experimental school were trained in values clarification through a series of workshops; teachers in the control school did not receive such training. Results from attitude and achievement tests indicated that use of values-clarification strategies had a pronounced effect on pupils' self-concepts and school sentiment but little effect on reading achievement, that the measures of attitudes were more interdependent than those of achievement, and that there were more positive relationships between both sets of measures as a result of the use of values clarification strategies.
