Heiße Themen - cool verpackt! Über den Umgang mit Politik im Unterricht
Do you sometimes have the impression that it would be important to discuss a current topic, but you fear that you will not be able to conduct political debates in a balanced way in class? How is it possible to ensure that everyone gets a chance to speak and yet no one gets into an argument? Are you considering whether a teacher should be allowed to contribute her personal opinion? The handout “Heiße Themen – cool verpackt! Über den Umgang mit Politik im Unterricht“, created by Marion Wisinger on behalf of Zentrum polis, responds to these questions and aims to help you develop the skills needed to take up these “hot” debates in the classroom. In addition to general tips, you will find four concrete suggestions on how to make controversial topics workable in the classroom – each with small exercises and “dos and don’ts”.
