Topic 3: Discussion Question 1
“And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching” (Titus 2:7 English Standard Version).
Reflecting on this verse, what is the role of a teacher in guiding and supporting students in the growth of their moral development? How will your assistance/guidance in moral development differ depending on the grade you are teaching (i.e., K-5 as opposed to grades 6-8)?
Read “Moral Development,” from the Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Psychology (2006).
