Identity & Values

Identity and values vary from person to person, family to family, and culture to culture. The literature and corresponding lessons in this domain explore the beliefs, values, attitudes, mindsets, and motivations that influence how individuals view and understand themselves, the world, and the relationship between the two. Expanding children’s understanding of identity and values helps them better understand people’s behaviors and actions.
