Multicultural Education in Teacher Training (Curriculum Guide for Universities).
Mistrik, Erich
The Slovak society is in the process of transformation. The main direction of transformation is political, from the totalitarian to the democratic society. The growing cultural variety of Slovakia increases the importance of multicultural education for student teachers. This curriculum guide for multicultural education in teacher training in Slovakia has been developed with advice and input from university colleagues from all over the world. The purpose of the curriculum is to provide a framework for the inclusion of multicultural education in Slovak universities. The guide is divided into the following sections: "Curriculum objectives" ("Basic concepts"; "Purpose of curriculum"; "Curriculum objectives"; "Character of curriculum"); "The starting points of multicultural education in Slovakia" ("Needs of the society"; "The needs of the school system"; "External conditions"); "The sense of multicultural education" ("Expectations"; "Key values"; "The importance of multicultural education"; "The character of multicultural education"; "Target groups"); "Intercultural competencies of a teacher" ("Content standards"; "Performance standards"; "Abilities"; "Skills"; "Personality standards"; "Attitudes"); "The content of multicultural education" ("Themes"; "Methods"; "Co-operating areas of education"); and "The course of multicultural education" ("Hidden curriculum"; "The place in the study programmes"; "Time frameworks"; "Evaluation").
