The Teaching of Values: An Instructional Guide.
Los Angeles City Schools, CA. Div. of Instructional Planning and Services.
To help elementary and secondary classroom teachers develop and implement values education programs, the document identifies values which should be dealt with in school and suggests activities to reinforce specific values. The document is presented in four chapters. Chapter I introduces values concepts which should be integrated into the education of all children, regardless of religious, cultural, ethnic, or philosophical background. Concepts include integrity, courage, responsibility, justice, reverence, love, and respect for law and order. Objectives are presented for each concept along with relevant quotations from well-known individuals. Chapter II relates the schools' responsibility for values education to the responsibility of home, church, temple, and synagogue. Chapter III suggests learning activities to reinforce specific values concepts. For each activity, information is presented on age group, resources, objectives, and materials. Activities involve students in story telling, analyzing readings, writing, discussing, problem solving, dramatic presentations, and field trips to museums and community organizations. The final chapter suggests additional reference materials. (DB)
