CLARK — Everyone values different items, beliefs and/or morals. Students in Miss Knoth’s Sociology class explored the values of the majority of Americans. Such values included; beauty, money, shelter, family, love, career, humanitarianism, acceptance, and individuality. In order explore American values further; students participated in an American Value Auction. Each student received a specified amount of money and had to divide the money between multiple values. Next, Miss Knoth auctioned off the values to the class and the higher bidder received the value. Overall, the auction clearly displayed that the majority of Americans do possess the same opinions of what is important to value and what is not.
