Developing Values through the Imagination

"In this essay, I argue that imaginative teaching and learning is essential in any type of values education, particularly if a constructivist view of values clarification (as opposed to values imposition) is favoured. As such, a warning is offered about the potentially counterproductive push for ‘character’ education, as seen in some parts of America, as well as the nationalistic approach to values education sometimes emphasised in Australia."
