The Teachers’ Edition of the Cards for Democracy is a set of 72 cards developed by Learn to Change. They are meant for teachers to reflect on, examine and improve their attitudes, skills and knowledge to better support democratic processes and improve their own practices and behaviours.
The cards identify and describe key actions that people who are facilitating learning can develop to better act in a society in which democracy is a true process that is inclusive of all human beings.
The cards – and the activities and games we can do with them – propose that each and every individual has a responsibility for true democracy to live. It’s a right and also a struggle. Each and every one of us can develop our:
- Creative possibilities to imagine a moral and just society;
- Willingness to act for the society we wish to live in;
- Agency to change our environments with our vision in mind.
In this post, we describe just one activity that can be done with these cards. Other activities will be added as we create them.
This is a collaborative work in progress. It has no ending!
It can be uplifting to experience how the values we hold dear can take many shapes. Values shape us and shape and govern the behaviour of everybody involved in any activity with any group.
This edition of the cards for democracy is for the professional development of educators.
Although the cards refer to “teachers”, they are meant for all sorts of people in positions to educate and lead others, who are interested in enabling democratic behaviours and spaces be it in schools, families, workspaces, communities, municipalities etc.
The Cards 4 Democracy – Teachers’ Edition is not available for free download. They require practitioners to go through training to be used.
