EDUCATIONAL CLASSES: THEIR ROLE IN SHAPING STUDENTS’ CONSCIOUSNESS AND MORAL CONDUCT PUBLISHEDMaria Palicica, Alina Mărghitan, Narcisa Stan
In this paper we analyse a few aspects concerning moral and civic education as an important aspect of education in general, on the ground of 9 th and 10 th form students’ opinion; we are also interested to see in what measure educational classes reach or not moral and civic objectives and if the topics are of particular interest to students, and if the teacher uses means and methods that are active and formative. Synthesising drawbacks during educational classes, we suggest both form masters and school managers to pay more attention to educational classes topics and issues. In order to shape beliefs and features of character, teachers should start from this in their approach of students’ problems, i.e. better know each student apart and direct and satisfy his/her wishes and aspirations. Among the features required from a good form master are besides the features of a good teacher in general, the sympathy for the students, positive traits of character (sincerity, communicativeness , etc.) and especially to be a good teacher that uses proper methods and means to teach.
