The Moral Education Project (Year 4): Annual Report 1975-76.
Beck, Clive; And Others
The booklet discusses results of a values education survey of teachers and administrators and examines issues, curriculum, and teaching techniques in values education. The report is intended for use by pre- and inservice teachers and teacher educators as they develop awareness of values and devise strategies to transmit this awareness to students. Members of the Moral Education Project administered an opinion survey to approximately 12,000 Ontario educators in March 1976. The four major areas of inquiry were concerned with definition of values education, teaching techniques, resources and materials, and resources already experimented with. Most educators agreed that two major goals for values education were to encourage respect for other people and to help individuals develop social responsibility. Respondents indicated the need for classroom skills and additional knowledge of how childrens' thinking develops. Resources most often used in values education programs included kits on moral education and values, religious materials, literature, and films. The appendix, which comprises the bulk of the document, presents a description and results of the survey, background information on values education, an overview of six major conceptions of moral and values education, teaching techniques, and lesson plans.
