While globalisation provides many opportunities in political, social, economic, and cultural fields nowadays, it has caused the problems which threaten the social life to rise. National, moral, social, ethical, and cultural values which form the foundation of our social life are the most important sources of reference for the solution of risks and problems which threaten the individual, family, society we live in and the world. Since values education is of particular concern to the whole society, it must be dealt with multi dimensionally. So, all the elements that compose education system require to gain sensibility and awareness. The teachers are not only practitioners of education programs but also they have the leading roles and missions to have the students acquire the values.(MEB TTKB,2010). Because of this, the teachers are required to be equipped with enough skills and knowledge about values education. The teacher who does not have enough knowledge and skills about the approaches of values education will try to realize this mission either unconsciously or implicitly.
