To teach values is to respond to the crisis of apparent normalcy in these post-modern times. Globalization, secularization and modernization have made the young drift away from values, principles and beliefs and indifferent to traditional moral teachings. Educators acknowledge that this drifting away and indifference of the young is a crisis, that if not addressed, can soon lead to social collapse. Joan Chittister (2005) succinctly tells us, "that a society that does not acknowledge and respond to the semmingly mundane problems shall soo suffer critical change. Hence, this paper take the challenge to teach the asian young people values using creative teaching strategies. This will primarily address how to impart positive values to the youth in an asian perspective.
