Ways of Teaching Values: An Outline of Six Values Approaches.
Kupchenko, Ian; Parsons, Jim
Six different approaches to teaching values in the classroom are reviewed in this paper. Each approach is reviewed according to: (1) the rationale of the approach; (2) the process of valuing; (3) the teaching methods used to achieve the specific purpose to the approach; (4) an instructional mode or system of procedures used by teachers to actualize the approach; (5) the roles of the student and the teacher in each approach; and (6) characteristics of the teaching and learning materials. The rationale of the values inculcation approach is to instill certain desirable and prechosen values in students. The moral development approach is used primarily to stimulate students to advance their powers of moral reasoning through a series of increasingly advanced and complex stages. The analysis approach to values education rests on helping students develop logical thinking and using scientific inquiry procedures in solving value issues. The clarification approach is to help students clarify and actualize personal values. The action learning approach is to develop students' abilities to act directly in personal and social situations so that they might try out their personal values. The emotional-rational approach to values education attempts to help students understand and adopt a lifestyle based on care and consideration for others as well as self. (SM)
