An Integrated Approach to Moral, Value, and Civic Education with Adolescents: An Analysis of Current Theory and Practice and Recommendations for Program Implementation.
Lickona, Thomas
Six value education methodologies for use on the secondary level are described and recommendations for implementing values/moral/civic education are presented. The first and second sections describe Lawrence Kohlberg's six-stage moral development approach to value education. The use of moral dilemma discussions to develop moral reasoning is examined and a democratic educational program in use at a large, urban high school in Cambridge, Massachusetts is described. Section three focuses on a method termed deliberate psychological education which combines changing the social role of the student by providing opportunities for new kinds of social interactions, developing personal skills, and reflecting on new experiences. Section four provides insigh into a reflective, ultimate life goals approach through description of a mini-course on value theory. Values analysis is considered in section five through presentation of the steps which should be taken in considering a value issue before reaching a decision. The most widely practiced approach to value education is described in section six, followed in section seven by a discussion of action learning as exemplified by the activities of Ralph Nadar. The six steps in the action learning approach, including awareness, understanding, and implementing strategies, are listed and a sample action learning project is included. A list of references concludes the document. (Author/DB)
