Integrationsarbeit mit eingewanderten Jugendlichen mit VaKE (Values and Knowledge Education)
Keywords:Integration, refugees, moral and values education, knowledge acquisition, pilot study
For a successful integration of young immigrants in the new culture and its values it is not sufficient that they acquire knowledge about the society; rather, moral and values education with respect to the justification of the respective values is required. We present an educational concept that permits to combine knowledge acquisition and moral education: “Values and Knowledge Education” (VaKE). The theoretical base and the practical steps are presented. Then a pilot study with a group of minor migrants about the topic of democracy and the most important results are described. The discussion addresses the question of applicability.
