Ted Ward is described as one who keeps "an eye on the future" as he seeks to make a difference in the present. Over a long and distinguished career in education, missions, and international development, Ted has never shied away from asking hard questions, sharing his perspectives, or tackling an injustice. As we sat together on his balcony on the Florida coast, we talked about issues related to theological education and the church. You will note that Ted's comments range around the world, move easily between theoretical analysis and practical realities, and as always, confront controversial issues head on.
In this article the authors present six models of teaching values development. Three methods of classifying the models are presented, including content-oriented or structure-oriented, pre-Kohlberg or post-Kohlberg, and acquisitional or developmental. Each of the six models is described in terms of teaching procedures, assumptions about learning, the nature of values, moral development, and educational objectives. Finally, the authors present six criteria for teachers to use in evaluating the models.
