What are Cards for Democracy - Teachers' Edition

The Teachers’ Edition of the Cards for Democracy 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 behaviors. 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 everyone 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.

How were they created?

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.
