Grade 8

Valued values

Module 1

Making our own judgements

So here you are in a new school, with some new learners, a new classroom and new teachers!

One of the ways of coping in a high school is to learn . . .

to form healthy relationships and

to express yourself well.

So, let us start by looking at your values, your actions and your maturity more closely:

Making our own judgements

Sometimes we grow so tired of other people telling us what to do. We long to make up our own minds about issues and would love to make our own decisions.

That is why it is important to have a good VALUE SYSTEM .

Activity 1:

[lo 2.2]

Try the following experiment on your own:

Look at the following list of values and place them in an alphabetical order of abstract nouns:

EXCITEMENT OPTIMISM 1 .......................... 11 ..........................
DISCIPLINE HARD WORK 2 .......................... 12 ..........................
LOVE GENTLENESS 3 .......................... 13 ..........................
GOOD APPETITE KINDNESS 4 .......................... 14 ..........................
HAPPINESS CHEERFULNESS 5 .......................... 15 ..........................
PATIENCE COMPASSION 6 .......................... 16 ..........................
TOLERANCE FAITH 7 .......................... 17 ..........................
TRUST SYMPATHY 8 .......................... 18 ..........................
CHARITY PEACE 9 .......................... 19 ..........................
HUMILITY HOPE 10 .......................... 20 ..........................

First, put them into alphabetical order, for clarity.

[LO 5.1.1]

Now, in YOUR view, choose the SIX BEST qualities, which you think can lead to a happy life.

  • Write down YOUR list
  • NOW, examine, CLOSELY, which SIX you have chosen.
  • Let your educator show you what the other learners have chosen.
  • Now YOU need to decide what ACTIONS SHOW these values; to find examples of how these values are manifest in society.
  • For rough notes :
VALUE ACTIONS WHICH PROVE THIS VALUE
  • Now ask yourself whether YOU act like this. (TIP: It is impossible to be perfect in all categories).

If you already DO act like this, then choose ANOTHER six and go through the process again.

If you DO NOT act like this, then ask yourself what you need to DO to act like this.

Remember, YOU are making the decisions and coming to YOUR OWN conclusions.

In other words, YOU are selecting a way of life; a FUTURE way to behave: A VALUE SYSTEM.

  • See if you can DRAW some of the values that you think are important:

Activity 2:

[lo 2.3.3]

  • Describe your family and your friends and their values. Interview members of your family and a few close friends for the following information:
  • Members of my family
  • What (s)he values [Start with “(S)he believes that . . . / in . . .]
  • Now describe YOUR values; what YOU believe in.
  • [LO 4.1.1]

Activity 4:

[lo 2.1]

This time you will be looking at how a person is judged.

You know that most characters are judged, at face value, on:

the way they behave;

the way they talk;

what they talk about;

their relationships with those about them

  • HOW DO YOU RATE?
  • MY judgement of . . .
