60 educators (teachers, professors, school-heads…) collaborated for some 6 years to develop learning activities that help nurture a democratic environment.
We realized that whether the topic, whether it was teaching history, civics, language etc. There was a core set of learning outcomes that were the same in each area.
We decided to work on finding what these core elements were.
Once we had found the core competences, we set off to identify what observables behaviors we could engage in that would show that we possess the competences: the cards are the behaviors we can display do in different contexts.
What are my values? Are they democratic?
Do I practice my values or am I a living inconsistency?
What are the democratic values that are identified as important by others around me?
Are the practices, actions and behaviors of actors in my community in line with these values or not? How so? What needs to be done to change any inconsistency?
Resources developed by us to support the use of Cards for Democracy for All
