What I've Learned about Values Education. Fastback 91.
The author discusses 12 principles for helping K-12 students develop values. The principles are: watch your modeling; help students feel secure and cared for; help students feel capable and appreciated; accept student confusions with empathy; encourage the sharing of confusions; make learning a living process; introduce neglected life issues for deliberation; encourage students to include choosing, prizing, and acting in deliberations; expand awareness of consequences; be forthright about your own values; develop skills for managing inner processes; and communicate hope and trust in life. The various principles in action are illustrated by having elementary and secondary teachers in many different subject areas describe the valuing techniques that they have successfully used in the classroom. The discussions also contain quotes from teachers and provide questions which teachers can use as checklists. (Author/RM)
