What are my values? How do I apply them in this tricky situation? What if they clash with someone else’s values? These are just some of the questions that this Values for Lifelong Learners series encourages students to explore and answer. Targeting students at a formative, highly impressionable age (11–13 years), its activities tap into a range of well-tested teaching methods for identifying and reflecting on values. A key component of each book is the dilemmas section, in which students examine their values within the context of various moral issues that many young people face today. The books are organised to gradually broaden the focus outwards: starting from the individual (Book 1), then moving on to the community (Book 2) and finally the environment (Book 3).
Features of the books in this series:
- Are grounded in the belief that effective values education can enhance academic achievement and other life outcomes
- Provide varied opportunities to think about, explore and reflect on value judgements
- Link values to real contexts and actions
- Make use of a range of teaching approaches and methods to maximise the benefits of values education
- Are carefully structured to allow systematic progression through the activities and from book to book.
Age suitability: 11-13+
