Values Education. Developments in Classroom Instruction.
Silver, Michael
This practical handbook for teachers of all levels and subject areas compares different approaches to values education. The book begins with a discussion of the role of values education in schools. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 define values and values systems, discuss the origin and development of children's values, and examine the role of the teacher in values education. Chapter 5, which comprises approximately half of the book, discusses various approaches to teaching values, giving special attention to values clarification, values inculcation, moral reasoning, values analysis, role playing, confluent education, and action learning. Selected bibliographies of supporting curriculum materials for the various approaches are included. How to evaluate student outcomes and how the structure of the school affects values education are examined in chapters 7 and 8. The handbook concludes with bibliographies of multimedia curriculum materials, student texts, teacher materials, and journal articles and a listing of projects, newsletters, and clearinghouses which deal with values education.
