The moral child : nurturing children's natural moral growth by William Damon( Book )

20 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moral education has become a matter of widespread common concern. Parents worry that their children are growing up bereft of traditional values. Teachers complain that their students seem ethically shallow and worse. Responding to these worries, politicians have entered the act, demanding that schools devote more time and effort to moral instruction. Children's morality is no longer simply a question of conduct in the home and corner playground; nor is it reserved for the province of religious leaders and scholars. It is the focus of public scrutiny and debate, a recognized societal problem of the first magnitude.-quote from the book

The moral advantage : how to succeed in business by doing the right thing by William Damon( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on interviews with 48 executives in a variety of industries, The Moral Advantage describes the many distinct ways that morality contributes to business success. Some of these ways are familiar (following ethical codes, for example), while others, such as unleashing the powers of moral imagination, have received little or no attention." "Damon details the many ways these business leaders applied their moral sense to strengthen their businesses. For some, it was a matter of directly extrapolating a new business concept from a moral (and often spiritual) worldview. For others, it was a sensitivity to what consumers needed and a determination to respond effectively to that. For yet others, it was a commitment to a caring and ethical manner of doing business that required inventive approaches to organizing employees. But in every case, Damon shows that it was by adhering firmly to a personal moral code that these men and women ultimately triumphed."--Jacket

Failing Liberty 101 : how we are leaving young Americans unprepared for citizenship in a free society by William Damon( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most serious danger that the United States now faces, says the author, is that our country's future may end up in the hands of a citizenry incapable of sustaining the liberty that has been America's most precious legacy. In this book, he argues that we are failing to prepare today's young people to be responsible American citizens, to the detriment of their life prospects and those of liberty in the United States of the future. He identifies the problems: the declines in civic purpose and patriotism, crises of faith, cynicism, self-absorption, ignorance, indifference to the common good, and shows that our disregard of civic and moral virtue as an educational priority is having a tangible effect on the attitudes, understanding, and behavior of large portions of the youth in our country today
The youth charter : how communities can work together to raise standards for all our children by William Damon( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the conclusion of Greater Expectations, his previous book, Damon introduced his idea of "youth charters"--The rules, guidelines, and plans of action that entire communities can draft and adopt to insure that their kids grow up right. Though briefly sketched, his concept has spread, and some towns have subsequently invited him into their communities to help them draft their own charters. In The Youth Charter, Damon describes in full detail the kinds of youth charters parents, teachers, clergy, youth leaders, coaches, the police, and others can adopt and make work for them. He shows how such charters can encourage adults and kids to work together to raise moral and intellectual standards, and how they can imbue our children with the values and goals we expect for their bright future. Drawing on his experience with the communities he has worked with, and tailoring his program to the problems community leaders have needed help in solving, Damon shows how, with youth charters, children's behavior and schooling can improve, and how communities can curb problems of teen vandalism, drinking, drugs, cheating, gambling, and pregnancy

Bringing in a new era in character education by William Damon( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Schools from K-12 to college campuses are increasingly paying attention to students' values and accepting responsibility for students' character. But how can we bring in this new era in character education in a way that makes the right kind of difference to young people? What are the approaches that will provide character education the solid foundation necessary to sustain it now and into the future? What obstacles in our current educational system must we overcome, and what new opportunities can we create?" "Bringing in a New Era in Character Education answers these questions, pointing out the directions that character education must take today and offering strategies essential for making progress in the field. The expert contributors explain how we can pass core values down to the younger generation in ways that will elevate their conduct and their life goals. They reveal why relativism has threatened the moral development of young people in our time - and what we can do to turn this around. And they show the critical importance of reestablishing student morality and character as targets of higher education's central mission." "The authors make a case for "moral exemplarity"--Actual human examples of moral excellence - as an effective tool of educational practice and describe how stoic warrior principles can offer a moral manner of managing one's emotions in times of pressure. Perhaps most important, they clarify the necessity of authority in any moral education endeavor - and show how it is actually a powerful force for both personal freedom and character building."--Jacket
