Mini-Quiz: Teaching Values with Aesop's Fables

by Ron Kurtus (revised 21 April 2012)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.



1. What is the resistance to teaching values in schools?

Schools are only for teaching usable skills

Often values are taught as relate to a specific religion

Most teachers are not qualified to teach values

2. Why are Aesop's Fables effective?

They are familiar and often have a built-in message

They show how animals can think and talk

Aesop no longer has copyrights

3. Why use thought-provoking questions in a children's story?

So they realize it isn't all fun

It is an effective teaching method

To keep the teacher from getting bored

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Educational Development. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
