This book contains selections from psychologists, social scientists, and educators on the origins and nature of moral reasoning and behavior.

Part two sets forth eight distinctively different theoretical views of how moral development occurs. Part three deals with research and critically examines findings in selected areas of moral functioning, pinpoints methodological problems, and suggests new methods for the study of morality. Part four looks at the moral dimensions of important social issues and attempts to derive intervention strategies from the accumulated theory and research about moral behavior. (Author/PB)

As our culture grows ever more abrasive and divided, we all want our kids to be kind. But that is not the same as knowing what to do when you catch your son being unkind.

Now he shares with parents the vital tools they need to bring peace and foster cooperation at home. Kindness doesn't stand on its own.

With concrete examples drawn from the many families Dr. Lickona has worked with over the years and clear tips you can act on tonight, learn how to give and get respect, hold family meetings to tackle persistent problems, discipline in a way that builds character, and improve the dynamic of your relationship with your children while putting them on the path to a happier and more fulfilling life

Preparing for citizenship : teaching youth to live democratically by Ralph L Mosher( )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the issues of democratic education and student responsibilities in the schools. There are three compelling reasons to engage students to have a direct experience of democracy as an integral part of their schooling: (1) students are most likely to understand and value democracy and develop the political skills required for effective democratic citizenship if they have the first-hand experience of participating in democratic self-governance; (2) democratic education is a powerful stimulus for full human development, including cognitive, ego, social, political, and moral development; and (3) democratic school governance offers the most practical, effective means of improving the school's moral culture, the operative moral norms that shape the behavior of the school's members. The volume includes the following chapters: (1) "Democracy in a New Hampshire School: Applied Citizenship Education"; (2) "Education in a Democracy"; (3) "The Student as Citizen: Politics and Development"; (4) "The School Within a School: a Democratic High School Comes of Age"; (5) "Democratic Governance at a Large, Diverse High School: The Brookline Experience"; (6) "The Question of Representation in a Democratic School"; (7) "Taking Part: Democracy in the Elementary School" (Ethel Sadowsky); and (8) "Education for Democracy and Full Human Competence." There are three appendices: (1) "School Government: The Council"; (2) "The Brookline High School Town Meeting"; and (3) "Some Proposals Addressed by Town Meeting." An index, and author biographies concluded the volume. Contains an extensive bibliography. (Eh)

Smart & good high schools : integrating excellence and ethics for success in school, work, and beyond by Thomas Lickona( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout history, and in cultures all over the world, education rightly conceived has had two great goals: to help students become smart and to help them become good. They need character for both. Smart & Good High Schools, a 227-page "report to the nation" by Thomas Lickona and Matthew Davidson based on two years of research on American high schools, describes nearly 100 promising practices for developing adolescent character. These practices are organized around a vision aimed at encouraging a paradigm shift in character education: from focusing only on moral character to focusing on both performance character (needed for best work) and moral character (needed for ethical behavior). The report's research included visits to 24 diverse high schools, a comprehensive research review, and the input of a National Experts Panel and a National Student Leaders Panel. --Publisher description

This document is a collection of essays on open education, the results of the Conference on Open Education held in April 1972 at the State University of New York College at Cortland. The title of the conference, "Increasing Alternatives for Teachers and Children," suggests the underlying theme for all the essays in this volume: respect for persons. As the preface states, open education is a moral statement about the worth, the individuality, the dignity, and the human rights of everyone involved in the educational enterprise. There are 26 essays in this volume, covering topics such as open classrooms versus open schools, teacher centers as an open approach to changine schools, structure in the open classroom, record keeping in the open classroom, the informalization of higher education, and open education in a closed society.
