Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Padagogik - Interkulturelle Padagogik, Note: 1,0, Universitat Koblenz-Landau, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In einer multikulturellen Gesellschaft wie der unseren kommen Kinder schon zu einem fruhen Zeitpunkt ihres Lebens mit Kindern anderer Herkunft und aus anderen Kulturen in Beruhrung. Bemerken sie anfangs den Unterschied noch nicht in vollem Umfang, so geschieht dies nach und nach. Hier beginnt eine kritische Phase, in der Kinder nicht wissen, wie sie mit den neu erkannten Unterschieden umgehen sollen. Auf der anderen Seite werden die Kinder der Immigranten vor das Problem gestellt, in einer anderen Kultur als die ihrer Eltern aufzuwachsen. Sie mussen es schaffen, sich zwischen der Kultur der Eltern, die meist zuhause gelebt wird, und der Kultur des Landes zurechtzufinden. Hier setzt die interkulturelle Erziehung ein. Sie soll den Kindern helfen, diese Probleme zu meistern und die unterschiedlichen Kulturen einander naher bringen. Die folgende Ausarbeitung beschaftigt sich mit dem Thema interkulturelle Erziehung.

Interkulturelle Erziehung

Genre: Education

Interkulturelle Erziehung geht nicht nur von einem Kulturbegriff aus und meint nicht nur die geistige Kultur einer Gesellschaft, sondern auch die Alltagskultur, also den tagtäglichen Umgang der Menschen miteinander. Dabei orientiert sie sich an den universellen Menschenrechten, versucht die Gleichheit aller Menschen und Kulturen anzuerkennen. Der Terminus entwickelte sich aus der Ausländerpädagogik. Einsicht und Erfahrung zeigten, dass ehrenamtliche Bemühungen in ‘Hausaufgabenhilfen’ keine angemessene Hilfe zur Förderung und Integration ausländischer Kinder darstellte und führte zu Veränderungen in diesem Bereich. Zum einen kam es zu einer Erweiterung des Arbeitsfeldes sowohl im Kindergartensektor als auch im Umgang mit ausländischen Erwachsenen. Zum anderen kam man zu der Erkenntnis, dass Ausländerpädagogik keine Sonderpädagogik für Ausländer sein könne. Vielmehr müsse man sich auch an die ‘Inländer’, also die Deutschen wenden, da viele Aufgaben nur im dialogischen Miteinander zu bewältigen wären. Da der Terminus ‘Ausländerpädagogik’ diese Inhalte nur ungenügend und missverständlich widerspiegelt, werden heute zunehmend die synonymen Begriffe ‘interkulturelle Erziehung’ und ‘interkulturelle Pädagogik’ verwendet.
