'The capacity to take part in dialogues and justify one's positions constitutes the normative core of critical social justice. This capacity is what makes citizens autonomous, so ensuring it is the main objective of a critical theory of justice. For citizens to become the true masters of their lives it is necessary to transform social structures and relations as well as to counteract the effects of capitalist dynamics on one's reflective capacities. To effectively intervene in real societies it is necessary to have the normative guidance provided by the principles and normative concepts presented in this book, which emerge from the constructive question: 'what are the necessary conditions for someone to be able to take part as an autonomous subject in decision making processes?''--Publisher's website.

Young Citizens of the World
57,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Young Citizens of the World takes a clear stance: Social studies is about citizenship education that is informed, deliberative, and activist-citizenship not only as a noun, something one studies, but as a verb, something one DOES. Its holistic, multicultural approach is based on this clear curricular and pedagogical purpose. Straightforward, engaging, and highly interactive, the book encourages students (and their teachers) to become informed, think it through, and take action. Each chapter is written as a civic engagement which is teacher-ready for use in elementary classrooms. A set of six teaching strategies that are constructive, inquiry-driven, dramatic, and deliberative bring the curricular framework to life through intensive, integrated meaningful studies of special places, important people, and significant times. Readers are invited to rehearse the projects in their social studies education courses and then to reinterpret them for their classrooms. The projects are supported by important resources for teaching, including supportive children's literature, links to internet sites, and visual sources and by a Companion Website that enhances and extends the text.
