LIVING POSITIVE VALUES
A discussion group is a powerful platform for teaching concepts and ideas that have been triggered by the Heartlines stories. This new guide provides a platform for faith based leaders to help communities understand each of these values and to challenge us to live out these values in our everyday lives. This new discussion guide – Living Positive Values – comes with a DVD of 17-min edited versions of the 8 HEARTLINES films. The book contains group discussion material to be used with the DVD for teaching.
STORIES THAT TALK
Teaching positive values through telling stories is a tradition that has been used for centuries in many cultures, Heartlines is working within this tradition. Research has shown that an important age for learning values is the 3-7 category. To target this age group, Heartlines has produces a read-aloud story book for parents to use to initiate discussion about values in the home.
The HEARTLINES read-aloud story book, Stories that Talk, is a collection of 10 picture stories, each revolving around one value. The stories have different genres, some are realistic, others fables, some funny, some with more pictures than others. They are illustrated by different artists. The stories are interspersed with pages for adults. These include discussion questions and information on how to develop the particular value explored in the story in young children.
Some of the country’s leading children’s story tellers have contributed to the collection. They include Gcina Mhlophe, Glynis Clacherty, Kopano Sechele and Marianna Brandt. The stories are set in a range of South African contexts, from rural to township, city to veld. The collection was selected and edited by Glynis Clacherty and Sally Howes, in conjunction with HEARTLINES.
Stories that Talk is NOW available in other South African languages.
STORIES THAT TALK 2
Following the success of the first Heartlines collection – Stories that Talk, Heartlines has produced Stories that Talk 2, a collection of stories for children in their primary school years.
Stories that Talk 2 is a collection of 9 illustrated stories – adventure, humour, stories of everyday and fables – there is something for everyone.
A carefully chosen value is threaded through each story. The ‘For you to think about’ pages will help children and adults discuss and deepen their understanding of the stories, and give practical advice on how to put the values into action. There are also pages for parents giving tips on how to teach values to children, and how to help children undertake values-based action projects.
The stories were selected for HEARTLINES by Sally Howes and Jennifer Charlton.
