Value Personalisation: A Base for Value Education.
Fernandes, Lydia
This study examined the impact of the Value Clarification Action Plan on the quality of values education for secondary school students. The study identified values to be modeled through teacher behavior, created an action plan for preservice teachers through the values clarification process, trained students in values personalization, helped teacher trainees in preparing lesson plans that integrated values, and identified the impact of value personalization on the quality of their teaching values in the classroom. A group of 40 out of 100 teacher trainees at one college in India participated. The study involved five phases: preparing the values clarification action plan; planning for values personalization; training for the integrated approach to values education; post-treatment testing; and analysis of the data. Data analysis indicated that the guidance and motivation provided to teacher trainees to clarify values by identifying them, to prepare action-oriented strategies, and to practice values using the action plan and giving value-integrated lessons created significant positive changes in personalizing values. Their experiences developed in them the ability to see beyond words and images, to find the real depth and meaning in whatever happened in life. The personalization of values provided a strong base and foundation for effective values education and helped teacher trainees have consistency in their teaching and practice. (SM)
