Value Orientations [and] Leader's Guide for the Value Orientations Exercise.
Grove, Cornelius Lee
A values exercise suitable for secondary school students is divided into three sections. The first section, an introduction to students, explains the concepts of and interrelationships between basic human needs, culture, values orientation, and global perspectives. The intent of the exercise, to help students appreciate how a set of value orientations is peculiar to a specific place and time, is also explained. The second section, the student exercise, describes 15 basic human concerns, organized under the headings of the individual, social relations, and nature and the supernatural. For each concern, students indicate where on a continuum they believe the majority of people in their own community stand on the issue. Examples of the concerns considered are belief in fate, sex roles, decision-making, personal values, friendship, conflict resolution, concern for the past, family ties, and material values. A final section contains a leader's guide for the student exercise. Information on learning objectives, materials, preparation, time and space requirements is provided, as are step-by-step procedures for group discussion. What is assumed to be the general consensus of professional sociologists, anthropologists, and researchers regarding the placement of the United States as a whole on each of the 15 scales is summarized.
