Education in the Moral Domain / Edition 1

This two-part book presents theory and research demonstrating that morality forms a domain of social values that is distinct from matters of societal convention. It presents practical suggestions for teachers on how to establish a moral classroom climate, deal with student discipline, integrate moral and social values education into the curriculum, and contribute to students' development of the moral self. The author tackles controversial issues—such as the relation between morality and religious rules, and the nature of cultural variation in moral value—with research and theory, rather than ideology.
