Reflection: Emmitt is Thankful: Exploring the Number 18 - Section 4: Independent Practice and Informal Assessment

 

I was having a discussion with a friend who teaches in a parochial school and she commented that she would not want to teach in a public school because pubic school teachers cannot teach values.  I immediately responded that she was not correct.  Religious values may not be taught in public schools, but universal values are!

This lesson is a great example of how value instruction can occur in a public school classroom.  We did not have a separate "values" lesson, but the concept was integrated into a math lesson.  The students really connected to "thankfulness".  We used this lesson as a springboard for further discussions on gratitude.  The students completed a book and writing assignment on thankfulness.  I encourage teachers to think about ways that value education can be integrated into core curriculum on a regular basis.
