Values for Lifelong Learners Book 2: Our community

What are my values? This series targets students at a formative age (11-13 years) and encourages them to examine their values within the context of various moral issues young people face today. It is grounded in the belief that effective values education enhances academic achievement and other life outcomes. Each book progressively broadens the focus outwards from the individual, to the community and then the environment.

Ages: 11-13 | Pages: 56 | Code: 5426 | ISBN: 9781877478925
