Motivating the Core: A Values-Led Approach to Owning a Common Future. Think Global Thinkpiece Series 013
Bowden, Rob
Think Global
This paper shares a selection of the context, insights and implications emerging from a pilot project "Leading Through Values" (LTV). The project took place across nine primary schools in the Midlands and focused specifically on nine active classes and their 210 learners. Pupils ranged from Year 2 to Year 6 and the active phase of the project was September 2012-April 2013. The focus of this paper is on exploring how the project motivated teachers to engage in critical values learning and to adapt their teaching and learning. Paramount to this was a carefully constructed learning journey, incorporating several inter-related theories, but all of the time being led by a consideration of values and their practical integration in the classroom. The paper begins with the context, setting out how the project emerged and touching on one or two of the theories and ideas driving it. It then shares some of the key insights to emerge from the active phase in schools, before reflecting on the implications of the project for those engaged, or with an interest, in global learning. The paper finishes with identifying how readers can contribute to, and learn further from, the ongoing work this project has spawned and its likely next steps.
