Values Enquiry in the Teaching of Geography


Chi-Chung LAM(林智中)


The General Guidelines on Moral Education in Schools has pointed out the importance of moral education and an inter-disciplinary approach is recommended. Values education can be carried out through many subjects. Geography is one of them. In this paper, the two broad groups of teaching approaches in values education, content-based and form-based, are introduced. Their relative advantages and problems are discussed. Form-based teaching approach is more and more popular among educators because it can avoid the danger of indoctrination. An example of values enquiry is attached in the appendix.
