Educating citizens : preparing America's undergraduates for lives of moral and civic responsibility by Anne Colby( Book )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 875 libraries worldwide
Reports on how some American colleges and universities are preparing thoughtful, committed, and socially responsible graduates. Many institutions assert these ambitions, but too few act on them. The authors demonstrate the fundamental importance of moral and civic education, describe how the historical and contemporary landscapes of higher education have shaped it, and explain the educational and developmental goals and processes involved in educating citizens. They examine the challenges colleges and universities face when they dedicate themselves to this vital task and present concrete ways to overcome those challenges

Educating for democracy : preparing undergraduates for responsible political engagement by Anne Colby( Book )

This book reports the results of a study of educational practices at the college level that prepare students for high quality democratic participation. Drawing on both quantitative and qualitative data from this study, the book articulates the most important goals of education for democratic participation, as they play out in practice, and provides rich accounts of key educational strategies that can be used to accomplish these goals. It also offers a theoretical statement of the importance, legitimacy, and feasibility of educating for democratic participation as well as a practical handbook, providing clear guidance to faculty and administrators wishing to help their students gain the understanding, skills, and motivation they need to be fully engaged in political life, broadly defined

A Longitudinal study of moral judgment by Anne Colby( Book )
13 editions published between 1979 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 347 libraries worldwide
Findings of this 20-year longitudinal study support Kohlberg's theoretical predictions of invariant structural consistency of subjects' responses to hypothetical moral dilemmas. Subjects were 58 American males chosen in 1955 according to age, social class and sociometric status. They were 10, 13, or 16 years of age at Time 1. Half of each age group were upper middle class, half working class. Half the subjects in each age and ses group were sociometric stars, half were sociometric isolates. Subjects were interviewed every 4 years between 1956 and 1977. Each interview included the presentation of nine hypothetical moral dilemmas with follow-up questions to probe the subject's reasoning. The Standard Form Scoring Manual (1978) was used to stage score the interviews. All scoring was done blind for each individual dilemma. A central point of the longitudinal analysis was to demonstrate the reliability and validity of the scoring system. If a stage is a structural whole, the individual should be consistent over various stimuli and occasions for testing. Reliability data are consistent with this requirement. Results indicate that in no case on either form did a subject reach a stage without having gone through each preceding stage. Almost all of the scores assigned an interview were at two adjacent stages. People seem in their development to go through certain qualitatively distant stages of moral reasoning. Development seems to be highly regular from stage to stage and highly consistent at each stage level. (Author/RH)
Competence and character through life ( Book )
5 editions published in 1998 in English and Spanish and held by 320 libraries worldwide
Competence and character are at the heart of our notions of a mature and successful adult, yet many questions about their nature and development remain unanswered. In this collection, leading psychologists, sociologists, and criminologists highlight the potential for positive development in different domains. By positing the possibility of multiple pathways of development rather than a single universal sequence, the contributors view the individual as potentially advancing in a wide range of interrelated and overlapping competencies. The nine essays in the book cover the years from youth to middle age, and they examine a range of social, political, and moral components of "competence and character" from teenage pregnancy and life-planning skills to voting records and educational attainment in low income households. Unlike comparable studies, this original and comprehensive volume frames issues, events, and longitudinal data through the lens of possibility rather than the pathology of defeat, stressing a positive approach to our conception of human potential
Rethinking undergraduate business education : liberal learning for the profession by Anne Colby( Book )
15 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 303 libraries worldwide
"This book is from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching's three-year effort developed in response to concerns about the failures of business education to prepare undergraduates for their responsibilities in society, including in their business practice. Business leaders stress the importance of liberal learning but most liberal arts courses are not well-integrated with the business curriculum. This important resource reports on examples of how the two can be integrated and offers solid recommendations for improvement. The authors also address the value of some perspectives that business can offer to the liberal arts"--
Social intelligence : measuring the development of sociomoral reflection by John C Gibbs( Book )
10 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 299 libraries worldwide
Democracy left behind ( visu )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 214 libraries worldwide
Do American schools adequately prepare students to take part in society? Can a complacent, ill-informed public trace its problems back to the nation's classrooms? This program examines the impact of the No Child Left Behind Act on the ability of public education to involve students in civic and governmental processes. Filmed in economically and culturally diverse schools, the program includes provocative interviews with teachers, administrators, and nationally known experts-all of whom discuss the challenges of helping children become knowledgeable citizens while fulfilling the needs of basic education. Scenes of teachers working to engage their students in participatory democracy are included
The power of ideals : the real story of moral choice by William Damon( Book )
8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 190 libraries worldwide
"Cynicism often seems a smarter choice than idealism. There are reasons for this. Politicians have disappointed us time and again; trusted institutions have proven to be self-serving and corrupt; hopes for lasting world peace repeatedly have been dashed; and social inequities persist and increase, unabated by even the grandest of charitable efforts. It is now considered foolish to think that people can be counted on to rise above their narrow self-interests to serve the broader good, or to tell the truth if it does not reflect well on the self. Supporting this bleak view of the human condition is a moral psychology that has taken increasingly cynical turns in recent years. Famous studies have shown that we have an almost unlimited potential for cruelty when placed in the wrong situations. The Power of Ideals presents a different vision, supported by a different kind of evidence. It examines the lives and work of six 20th century moral leaders who pursued moral causes ranging from world peace to social justice and human rights. Using these six cases to illustrate how people can make choices guided by their moral convictions, rather than by base emotion or social pressures, authors William Damon and Anne Colby explore the workings of three virtues: inner truthfulness, humility, and faith. Through their portrayal of the noble lives of moral leaders, the authors argue that all of us--with ordinary lives--can exercise control over important life decisions and pursue ideals that we believe in"--
The measurement of moral judgment by Anne Colby( Book )
41 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 120 libraries worldwide
This work was originally issued as a two-volume set, published in 1987 and 1988. It constitutes the definitive presentation of the system of classifying moral judgment built up by Lawrence Kohlberg and his associates over a period of twenty years. Researchers in human development and education around the world, many of whom have worked with interim versions of the system - indeed, all those seriously interested in understanding the development of moral judgment - will find it a useful and accessible resource. Volume 1 reviews Kohlberg's stage theory, and the large body of research on the significance and utility of his moral stages. Issues of reliability and validity are addressed. The volume ends with detailed instructions for using the reference sections, which are presented in volume 2
