A Framework for Museums' Role in Moral Education.
Hapgood, Susanna; Kupperman, Jeff
This paper proposes that a general framework of moral education, namely Thomas Green's "voices of conscience" can provide a starting point for exploring the role of moral education in museums. The first part of the paper summarizes Green's framework and discusses how that framework can be applied to education in museums. The second part of the paper suggests an approach, based on John G.Thompson's interpretative methodology, for empirically examining moral messages created by museums. The study suggests that museums generate moral messages as part of their educative role. The paper states these frameworks can be a starting point for further investigations about the role of museums as places for moral education. (EH)
