Did I Forget about the Dispositions? Preparing High School Graduates for Moral Life
Misco, Thomas
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v80 n6 p267-270 Jul-Aug 2007
In this article, the author addresses the problem of content knowledge dominating the school curriculum and the resultant marginalization of sociocivic and moral dispositions. Given the problems associated with teaching dispositions directly, the author offers four curricular aims that collectively develop the attitudes required of democratic citizens through deliberate employment in daily curriculum planning.
