Curricular Effectiveness in Moral/Values Education: A Review of Research [Book Review]

Journal of Moral Education 10 (3):147-164 (1981)
Abstract Research on the curriculum effectiveness of moral/values education approaches was reviewed. Two approaches (values clarification and moral development) were identified as having sufficient completed research to warrant examination. A total of 59 studies were reviewed, 33 focusing on values clarification and 26 with moral development as the focus. The research on values clarification indicated that little or no confidence is warranted regarding its potential curricular effectiveness. On the other hand, the research base for the moral development approach indicated that cautious optimism is appropriate. Finally, suggestions were offered for future research on these two approaches
