100 Ways To Enhance Values and Morality in Schools and Youth Settings.
This book presents a comprehensive approach to values education and moral education. It draws on old and new approaches and methods to help young people grow up with clear values, good character, moral integrity, and the knowledge and skills to be good citizens. This comprehensive model utilizes traditional approaches for inculcating and modeling values, and for teaching and demonstrating to young people the best values and moral traditions of their culture. New approaches are discussed that are intended to help students internalize these values and to develop the attitudes, beliefs, and skills to guide their own lives and make responsible, personal decisions in a changing world. The approach presented here is a practical one. One hundred different methods for enhancing values and morality are described, with clear guidelines, examples, and suggestions for implementation. The book is divided into two parts. Part I, Values Education and Moral Education: A Comprehensive Approach, provides information on the following subjects: a brief history of values education; an overview of values education approaches; a discussion of the components of comprehensive values education, and suggestions for implementing the comprehensive approach. Part II, 100 Ways To Enhance Values and Morality in Schools and Youth Settings is arranged in the following categories: inculcating values and morality; modeling values and morality; facilitating values and morality; skills for value development and moral literacy; and developing a values education program.
