Moral Reasoning: A School Administrator's Handbook.
Allegheny Intermediate Unit, Pittsburgh, PA.
It is suggested that the schools cannot avoid questions of morality and values. This manual will help administrators reflect on these questions in the context of their own schools. The manual reviews several of the most popular forms of moral education--inculcation, values analysis, and values clarification; presents a rationale and process for a program of moral reasoning; suggests some ways to deal with the administrative requirements involved in implementing a moral reasoning approach to moral education; and notes some places to find more information and resources. The moral reasoning materials and processes described in this manual were created and tested as part of the Responsible Citizenship Project. Over the past two years the project has helped social studies teachers of 11 school districts in the suburban Pittsburgh area work with their students to deal with social and moral issues.
