This resource features four activities that aim to strengthen diversity within secondary education. The main goal is to foster a culture of democracy within a classroom and student context with this resource focusing on different aspects of democratic competences such as human rights, democratic participation, civil responsibility and measures against corruption.
This resource helps educators to develop the necessary skills to strengthen the democratic culture and empathy with their learners, through encouraging them to participate in decision making processes. It introduces concepts of democratic institutions and principles, and how to apply these inside the classroom. In doing so, the resource employs cooperative work, role play and group discussion.
This resource can be used in teacher training as well as in the education of pre-service teachers in early as well as advanced secondary education.
