Teaching Values engages in the ongoing debate over values in contemporary education. Ron Scapp addresses controversial issues from a broad, progressive and postmodern perspective, offering readers the critical analyses crucial to beginning a sophisticated dialogue about values-based education. Grounding theoretical kwledge in practical examples, the book examines a range of topics, from multicultural education to the impact of postmodernism on contemporary pedagogy and from power in the classroom to the question of masculinity. This provocative work combines intellectual rigour and theoretical nuance with practical kw-how for the teacher.
