TASKs for democracy (Pestalozzi series No. 4)

TASKs for democracy – 60 activities to learn and assess transversal attitudes, skills and knowledge is a handbook for practitioners in formal and non-formal educational settings developed within the Pestalozzi Programme Community of Practice.

It contains a rationale for the necessity to focus on competences for democracy in all areas of education, an explanation of what transversal attitudes, skills and knowledge mean and why they are important for and should be taken on board by all education professionals.

A list of components forms the heart of the publication, describing the core attitudes, skills and knowledge which need to be developed by every individual in order to be able to live in and to contribute to the development and maintenance of democratic societies in their full diversity. The collection of learning and “re-learning” activities will help practitioners to promote the development of these components in their day-to-day educational practice.
