Description

A supplement for courses in Educational Psychology, Child Development, and Classroom Management.

The only text of its kind, and written by the leading U.S. figure in the field of moral development, Larry Nucci’s Nice Is Not Enough: Facilitating Moral Development fulfills a dire need in the marketplace for a text on moral development and moral education based on the social cognitive domain theory. The text was written to provide a highly readable, research-based approach to applying developmental psychology to moral education for education practitioners and teacher education majors. Readers will appreciate the practical information featured throughout the text on how to integrate the newest research on students’ social and moral development into everyday classroom practices. The author provides an overview of how children’s concepts of morality form a dimension distinct from social convention and religious norms, presenting a non-arbitrary basis for moral education that respects cultural and religious orientations. The chapters illustrate how to integrate moral education into classroom management practices and the regular academic curriculum. Filled with a myriad of examples of authentic lesson plans based on social studies, literacy, the sciences, art, and math for elementary, middle school and high school students, this unique and practical text conveys a more accurate account of moral development, especially in adolescence. Exceptional and distinct, this supplemental text for helping educators facilitate moral and social development in the students in their classrooms should be an essential resource on every teacher’s bookshelf.
