Human Rights Education in Pre-Primary Schools: Educating Children to be Receptive to Others and to Diversity in Society! Report. Proceedings of the Teachers' Seminar (40th, Donaueschingen, West Germany, June 20-25, 1988).
A seminar was held on the theme of human rights education. The seminar was thought to be the first to cover the theme of human rights in the context of nursery school and pre-primary education. The objective of the seminar was to alert teachers, educators, and teacher trainers to human rights and to ways of introducing the subject of human rights at the pre-elementary level. Participants, who came from eight Council of Europe member countries, included teachers, teacher trainers, advisers, and inspectors. The lectures included in this report cover: (1) a few points designed to stimulate thought on the birth of hatred of others; (2) constituent aspects of stories, the function of the marvelous, and the search for meaning; and (3) human rights education and nonverbal communication among the very young. Workshop discussions are summarized. Concluding remarks focus on human rights education as education, in practice, as education of the person, and recommendations are offered for applied human sciences into teacher training. (RH)
