Values Education: A Resource Booklet.
Barrs, Stephan; And Others
This booklet is designed to introduce the reader to Values Education. Its purpose is to provide the teacher with those techniques and methods necessary to make values an integral part of any curriculum. The goal is to re-orient the learning experience, making it more meaningful for all concerned. A commitment to this end is necessary if this goal is to be achieved. Values Education assumes that teachers have the task of assisting learners in their quest for a clear, consistent and defensible system of values. A student exposed to some systematic treatment of values should, among other things, display a clear, consistent, and defensible pattern of judgments and actions based on a value system, and focused on the universal needs of affection, respect, skill, enlightenment, power, wealth, well-being and responsibility. This booklet provides exercises and activities to promote this end. (Author/BP)
