Values Education ‐‐ Some New South Wales Experiences

Journal of Moral Education 8 (3):193-201 (1979)
Abstract While values education in the NSW system is not new, there have been certain inputs into this system in the last few years that have brought about some significant changes. One source of these inputs was the Department of Education which published its Primary Social Studies Curriculum Guidelines in 1975. A second source was a number of published, in?depth inquiry units that were developed in the United States and then travelled across the Pacific to the NSW market. A third source was, and still is, the creative energy of some NSW teachers. The end result has been a multi?pronged approach to values education within a Social Studies framework. No one particular approach to values education e.g., values clarification or moral reasoning, has been adopted. Rather, a variety of approaches, made possible by the new directions of Social Studies education, has been favoured. This paper attempts to detail these new directions and then to describe and analyse some of the effects they have had
