Growing a Shared Vision. A Values-Based Learning Toolkit for Schools.
Are we "walking our talk" as educators? Is our school a living example of a vibrant, sustainable community? Do we provide a supportive learning environment for staff and students, and empower them as agents of positive change? This toolkit provides tools to assess whether the educational environment we create for our students facilitates acquiring responsible values.
The toolkits include different levels of values-based indicators, one for individual students or teachers, and the other for school evaluation. Participating teachers, students, parents and/or administrators work together to choose a few useful and relevant indicators. The wording of the indicators can be changed if necessary, and suitable measurement methods are then identified.
