Everyday Issues Related to Justice and Other Gospel Values.
Kealey, Robert J.
This manual presents situations that occur in the lives of most children and suggests to the teacher related activities which might cause students to reflect on the deeper meaning and significance of the situations. It seeks to make the teacher, and thus students, aware of the fact that peace, justice, and other value issues are part of daily living. There are 31 lessons included, all of which are designed to be used whenever the appropriate situation comes up rather than in a fixed order, as well as two chapters addressed to the teacher which focus on the importance of values education and how to use these lessons. The lesson situations include: new students in class, culturally different students, the elderly, handicapped people, stealing, learning that a friend has stolen something, cheating in school, helping another student cheat, disagreement with a friend, unemployment, academic and athletic competition, the meaning of death, right to life, television commercials, destruction of property, the throw-away society, waste of food, assemblies, care of pets, loss of one's home through a disaster, embarrassing sickness, lack of volunteers, examination period, food drive, operation rice bowl, poking fun at other students, unkind nicknames, mimicking a physical handicap, school service project, Martin Luther King Day, and inaccurate language. Each activity includes the value to be taught, background, objective, and specific activities for primary and upper level students. (IS)
