At present when almost everyone’s value system is slowly deteriorating, the second edition of the Values Education Series may be the answer to the growing need for a reevaluation of values, the core of one’s whole being. It brings into focus the most important areas of one’s life—oneself, one’s community, one’s neighbors, and one’s God.
Level/s: High School
With a stronger drive to instill values, this series—
- gives weight to the worth of every human being as a creation of God;
- impresses upon the students the importance of faith in a very confusing world;
- instills in the students Filipinism, pride in the Filipino heritage and magnifies the importance of family and friends;
- discusses societal issues, such as freedom, social justice, democracy, and human rights;
- awakens the students through immersion programs and field trips, to the plight of their less fortunate brothers and sisters and to the sad condition of Mother Earth;
- encourages parents to play an active role in the value formation of their children;
- deals with quite sensitive issues, such as sexuality and premarital sex, with openness but with tact; and
- evolves around the two most important commandments of God—love your neighbor and love God.
The Worktext employs the value-clarification and action-learning approaches in putting one’s values to the fore and in encouraging personal and social action based on these values. Each has a glossary explaining terms as they were used in the text so as to avoid misinterpretation. Every lesson has a module preview presenting as an overview of what the lesson is and a set of desired objectives to be satisfied after each lesson.
The Teachers Guide provides additional lessons as well as suggested class activities and exercises.
