Heroes, Values, and Transcending Time: Using Trade Books To Teach Values.
Sanchez, Tony R.
This paper traces the apparent disillusionment of current American society as attributed to alleged misguided values and the neglect of effective citizenship education. Acknowledging that the schools' attempts at values education have encountered problems, this is still a mission of social studies education. The paper examines the spirit of heroism as an important step in teaching/promoting the values of effective citizenship and promotes utilizing the depth and accuracy of commercial trade books to supplement the limited conventional textbook. Six selected trade books by Milton Meltzer and Russell Freedman note the commonality and continuity of values demonstrated by six "traditional" American heroes. Contains 14 notes and 4 references.
