List of Moral Values for

Lesson Planning
These few days have been a blur...
because things are happening so
fast!

I have lots to blog about, but
because I'm short of time, I'll just
post this list of moral values. It's
useful for teachers and trainees alike
in planning lessons as in every
lesson plan, you must always
include at least one moral value to
accompany your lesson content!
This is from the inistry, there's a
short introduction to it, but I don't
have it now.

MORAL VALUES IN THE ISSC
Background
A Moral Education Committee
(Jawatankuasa Pendidikan Akhlak)
was formed in 1976 comprising
prominent members respecting
various religions in the country.
This committee deliberated on
moral values inherent in each
religion and finally identified 16

all. In the ISSC, these 16 umbrella
