Civic Education in Professional Training
Tamborlini, Alfredo
This paper discusses curriculum reform in Italy. Teachers should offer a global approach to education while teaching civic education to students. Referred to as "making culture," civic education should contain content that satisfies the criteria of validity, significance, interest, and student learning. Schools should create new curriculum goals, objectives and programs, and evaluate the programs. A regional training proposal for Italian teachers is included that gives the goals and objectives for the legal, economic, and socio-political aspects of civic education. The four cycles for this program are humanization, socialization, personalization, and the socio-political engagement. The document also includes: (1) the training objectives and didactic contents of the program including curriculum guidelines for using newspapers in the classroom; and (2) a teacher's guide. (DJC)
