Values Education and Some Suggestions to Teachers
Demirhan Iscan, Canay
Hacettepe University Journal of Education, v40 p245-255 2011
This paper focuses on the process, approaches and teacher roles in values education and offers recommendations for teachers. It uses print materials and Internet sources on values education. These sources were analyzed and synthesized to reveal certain cases and/or opinions. In addition to contemporary sources, older reference materials were also consulted in offering information about values education and the bases of the approaches used in it. Teachers may adopt various roles in the process of fostering or developing certain values in their students. However, it is not enough for them to mention the values that they think are important; these values need to be used during teacher-student interaction. The solution lies in teaching students the skills they need to develop their own values while at the same time promoting the values that teachers hold.
