The Diploma Paper entitled “A Set of Formative Tasks to Foster Values Education through an Analysis of the Historical Evolution of the United States of America”, is a research work on one of the fundamental areas of the Cuban educational system at the moment, that is, the education of the younger generations based on a system of values without which the conquests of our socialist society have little opportunities to succeed. It consists of three chapters. Chapter one comprises a theoretical foundation in which the values formation aspect is approached from a scientific perspective. Different characteristics and concepts of the formative process are analyzed in this chapter. There is also an analysis of the potentials of the History lesson and the historical periods the author has dealt with to foster values education. Chapter two, which constitutes the author’s practical contribution with this paper, includes a set of formative tasks intended to foster values education through the analysis of some historical periods in the history of the United States of America the author has selected. Even when the exercises´ main objective is to strengthen the students´ values, they also contribute to the development of the four abilities regarding the teaching learning process of English as a foreign language. Chapter three comprises the corroboration of the proposal of the set of formative tasks intended to foster values education in the students of the English major.
