Interkulturelle Erziehung

Author: Silvana Lehmann
Publisher: diplom.de
ISBN: 9783958206847
Release Date: 2015-02-01
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.

Genre: Religion

Multiculturalism: A Shalom Motif for the Christian Community is an attempt to engage the Christian community on the ongoing discussion of cultural diversity and its implications for the church and the entire Christian community of the twenty-first century. Written for Christian schools and churches, this book confronts the fact that, for the Christian church in North America to remain vibrant and relevant in the twenty-first century, it must engage with the idea of multiculturalism and all other forms of diversity that now characterize the contemporary society. While the nature of this engagement will vary from case to case, cultural diversity must become a growing face of the church in America. This book uses a combination of philosophy, educational theories, and biblical theology to provide Christian educators and churches with a critical understanding of multiculturalism, as well as practical steps for engaging this issue within the Christian community.

The Art of Effective Facilitation

Author: Lisa M. Landreman
Publisher: Stylus Publishing, LLC
ISBN: 9781579229795
Release Date: 2013-10-01
Genre: Education

How can I apply learning and social justice theory to become a better facilitator? Should I prepare differently for workshops around specific identities? How do I effectively respond when things aren’t going as planned? This book is intended for the increasing number of faculty and student affairs administrators – at whatever their level of experience -- who are being are asked to become social justice educators to prepare students to live successfully within, and contribute to, an equitable multicultural society. It will enable facilitators to create programs that go beyond superficial discussion of the issues to fundamentally address the structural and cultural causes of inequity, and provide students with the knowledge and skills to work for a more just society. Beyond theory, design, techniques and advice on practice, the book concludes with a section on supporting student social action. The authors illuminate the art and complexity of facilitation, describe multiple approaches, and discuss the necessary and ongoing reflection process. What sets this book apart is how the authors illustrate these practices through personal narratives of challenges encountered, and by admitting to their struggles and mistakes. They emphasize the need to prepare by taking into account such considerations as the developmental readiness of the participants, and the particular issues and historical context of the campus, before designing and facilitating a social justice training or selecting specific exercises. They pay particular attention to the struggle to teach the goals of social justice education in a language that can be embraced by the general public, and to connect its structural and contextual analyses to real issues inside and outside the classroom. The book is informed by the recognition that “the magic is almost never in the exercise or the handout but, instead, is in the facilitation”; and by the authors’ commitment to help educators identify and analyze dehumanizing processes on their campuses and in society at large, reflect on their own socialization, and engage in proactive strategies to dismantle oppression.

Rasool and Curtis present general teaching strategies and methods–with a multicultural slant–for middle and high school-level pre-service teachers. The text's diversity perspective prepares the teacher-to-be for today's classroom; a classroom of increased diversity in student ethnicity, linguistic and cultural background, family structure, socioeconomic status, learning style, and degree of learning ability. The methods and strategies provided encourage middle and secondary teachers to become life-long learners who continuously engage in a reflective process that re-examines their reasons for becoming a teacher, along with the origin and consequences of their decisions and actions as teachers. The final goal is to empower the teacher to be both a visionary and a "change-agent" in this multicultural society.
