  1. Profiles of Adolescent Character Attributes: Associations with Intentional Self-Regulation and Character Role Model Relationships.Jacqueline V. Lerner, Caitlin Aymong Wong, Michelle B. Weiner & Sara K. Johnson - 2021 - Journal of Moral Education 50 (3):293-316.
    ABSTRACT Despite acknowledgment that character operates as a multi-faceted system of multiple attributes, few efforts have examined this system by investigating how character attributes may combine in profiles and how profiles are related to individual internal strengths and contextual assets. Using data from 552 adolescents from the Northeastern United States, we identified five latent profiles including the character attributes honesty, humility, persistence, future orientation, and purpose. Three profiles were characterized by Low, Middle, and High levels of all attributes, respectively, the (...)

  • Links Between Moral Identity and Political Purpose During Emerging Adulthood.Hyemin Han, Parissa Jahromi Ballard & Youn-Jeng Choi - 2021 - Journal of Moral Education 50 (2):166-184.
    ABSTRACT We examined the links between moral identity—the centrality of moral principles to identity—and political purpose during emerging adulthood. We analyzed data from two waves of a longitudinal study of civic purpose. T1 surveys were collected before high school graduation, and T2 surveys were collected 2 years later. We categorized people into political purpose groups based on the person-centered perspective and then performed a multinomial logistic regression analysis to test whether moral identity was associated with categories of political purpose. The (...)

  • Ethical Reconstruction of Citizenship: A Proposal Between the Intimate Self and the Public Sphere.Antonio Bernal Guerrero, Vicent Gozálvez Pérez & Marta Burguet Arfelis - 2019 - Journal of Moral Education 48 (4):483-498.
    ABSTRACTWhen, in societies today, civic commitment decreases, there is a call for the need to strengthen citizenship education, identified uniquely with its public dimension and, on the other hand, the requirement for character education has been advocated, which is a cultivator of the most strictly private dimension. Setting out from the recognition of the new social conditions, mediated by the phenomenon of globalisation and of the place that people have in these new contexts, we ask ourselves about the new profile (...)

  • Nonadmirable Moral Exemplars and Virtue Development.Koji Tachibana - 2019 - Journal of Moral Education 48 (3):346-357.
    ABSTRACTLinda Zagzebski’s exemplarist moral theory claims that admiration for a person is a necessary condition for her to be a moral exemplar. I argue that this claim is empirically unsupported. I provide two counterexamples, astronauts and brain data. I demonstrate that they play the role of exemplars well but receive no admiration and, accordingly, are entitled to be called nonadmirable moral exemplars. I conclude that my argument suggests why Aristotle, distinct from Zagzebski, does not emphasise the role of the praiseworthiness (...)

  • Effects of Intrinsic Motivation and Informative Feedback in Service-Learning on the Development of College Students’ Life Purpose.Jongho Shin, Myung-Seop Kim, Hyeyoung Hwang & Byung-Yoon Lee - 2018 - Journal of Moral Education 47 (2):159-174.
    This study applied self-determination theory to youth purpose development among Korean college students. It examined the effects of students’ intrinsic motivation for volunteering and informative feedback from significant others on three dimensions of life purpose: confidence in purpose, commitment to purpose and social contribution. The study also tested whether informative feedback influenced the relationship of intrinsic motivation and life purpose development. Participants were 110 Korean college students taking a one-semester service-learning class. The results showed that informative feedback positively affected commitment (...)

  • Developing the Next Generation of Engaged Youth: Inspire Aspire – Global Citizens in the Making.Jennifer Brown Urban, Miriam R. Linver, Sara K. Johnson, Marisa MacDonnell, Lisa M. Chauveron, Monica Glina & Lauren Gama - 2018 - Journal of Moral Education 47 (1):104-125.
    School-based character education programs provide an opportunity to increase the moral fortitude of adolescents. This study is a preliminary evaluation of Inspire Aspire, a CE program that was implemented with 13- to 14-year-olds in Scotland. A relational developmental systems meta-theoretical approach and person-centered analyses were employed to understand whether teacher implementation variability is associated with student outcomes. The study aimed to: assess variation in program implementation across teachers; assess student poster quality, which served as a youth outcome measure; and, assess (...)

  • How Do Future Life Perspective and Present Action Work in Japanese Youth Development?Toru Kawai & Seana Moran - 2017 - Journal of Moral Education 46 (3):323-336.
    Future life perspective and present action, whose interaction affects how one’s current activity affects later life, offer a critical crossroads for young adults in Japan as stable career paths have become more uncertain. Past generations benefited from stable institutional pathways, but recent generations must forge their own ways. This article reviews how Japanese undergraduate students think about their present and future and relates these thoughts to identity and career development. We compare the Japanese conception with youth purpose in the US, (...)

  • Youth Purpose Worldwide: A Tapestry of Possibilities.Seana Moran - 2017 - Journal of Moral Education 46 (3):231-244.
    Interest in youth purpose is growing among scholars around the world. With globalization, better understanding of life purposes in different countries becomes more important as this generation’s youth are influenced by ideas and events anywhere. This special issue contributes to this inclusive, worldwide frame of mind by showcasing work done outside the US on the development, functioning and moral import of purposes as personal ‘threads’ intertwined that contribute to a global ‘tapestry.’ This introduction provides frameworks for thinking about the articles (...)

  • Adolescents Finding Purpose: Comparing Purpose and Life Satisfaction in the Context of Singaporean and Israeli Moral Education.Mary Anne Heng, Ina Blau, Gavin W. Fulmer, Xiaofang Bi & Andrew Pereira - 2017 - Journal of Moral Education 46 (3):308-322.
    Purpose is an intention over the long-term to have an effect on the world that is both meaningful to oneself and to others. What are schools doing to help students use the knowledge and skills they learn in school in their own lives and aspirations? This is the first study that compares adolescent purposes and life satisfaction in Singaporean and Israeli schools. Findings showed four purpose clusters for Singaporean adolescents: No Orientation, Self-focused, Other-focused, and both Self- and Other-focused. Israeli adolescents (...)

  • The VIA Inventory of Strengths, Positive Youth Development, and Moral Education.Hyemin Han - forthcoming - Journal of Positive Psychology.
    The VIA Inventory of Strengths and the VIA model were originally developed to assess and study 24 character strengths. In this paper, I discuss how the VIA Inventory and its character strength model can be applied to the field of moral education with moral philosophical considerations. First, I review previous factor analysis studies that have consistently reported factors containing candidates for moral virtues, and discuss the systematic structure and organization of VIA character strengths. Second, I discuss several issues related to (...)

  • Moral Identity Predicts the Development of Presence of Meaning During Emerging Adulthood.Hyemin Han, Indrawati Liauw & Ashley Floyd Kuntz - forthcoming - Emerging Adulthood.
    We examined change over time in the relationship between moral identity and presence of meaning during early adulthood. Moral identity refers to a sense of morality and moral values that are central to one’s identity. Presence of meaning refers to the belief that one’s existence has meaning, purpose, and value. Participants responded to questions on moral identity and presence of meaning in their senior year of high school and two years after. Mixed effects model analyses were used to examine how (...)
