United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Principal Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.
This sourcebook is the outgrowth of a July, 1996 meeting held in Malacca, Malaysia, where the Asia Pacific Network for International Education and Values Education (APNIEVE) experts group articulated the Asia-Pacific longing for peace and harmony. The sourcebook is based on international education and values education, with emphasis on peace, harmony, human rights, democracy, and sustainable development in the region. Major emphases are placed on the meaning of Learning to Live Together, the core and related values needed to live together successfully and peacefully, and the development of learning experiences that will help teacher trainees and students actualize such values. Following an introduction, the sourcebook is divided into these chapters: (1) "The APNIEVE Philosophy"; (2) "The Asia-Pacific: Context and Conceptual Framework"; (3) "Education for Learning to Live Together"; (4) Guidelines for Teaching-Learning Materials and Sample Lesson Plans; and (5) The State of the Practice of Values Education in Teacher Education: Country Reports. Appendixes contain several declarations of principles, a plan of action, selected papers, and a directory of participants of APNIEVE meetings. (Contains 49 references.) (BT)
