Citizenship in the Classroom: Transferring and Transforming Transcultural Values
Kjellin, Margareta Sandstrom; Stier, Jonas
Intercultural Education, v19 n1 p41-51 Feb 2008
The aim of the paper is to present and discuss a Report from a Comenius 2.1 project, aimed at developing teachers' interpersonal, intercultural, social and civic competence. The study presented in the report was a multiple case study, and the methods for collecting data were focus group dialogues (with 34 teacher students), one video recording in each country and a document analysis of a European overview of citizenship education in Europe. Five countries participated in the study (the Netherlands, Portugal, Poland, the UK and Sweden) and the study focused on 12 year-old pupils. One conclusion was that teacher education needs to focus more on horizontal classroom dialogue if goals for citizenship education are to be reached.
