It fosters learners’ critical thinking skills, their ability to communicate effectively as well as a reflection of their own understanding of democracy. Through extensive group work the unit also introduces the Model for a Democratic Culture which can be used as a basis for further democratic education.
This resource can be used within the classrooms of early and late secondary schools as well as in a training context with teachers and trainee teachers.
