Materialentwicklung für schulischen Unterricht – ein praxisorientierter Blick in einen multiprofessionellen Prozess
Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which are committed to the benefit to the society, carry out their contribution to the fulfillment of their societal mission also in the field of education. Their interest often is to bring current societal issues into the classroom from a civil society perspective. Numerous and diverse educational materials are developed for this purpose. In contrast to state-approved teaching and learning materials, NGO materials do not have to go through a (state) external review process before they can be used in class. But what are the specific added value of teaching materials offered by NGOs for all members involved in schoollife. According to which premises this teaching material is developed? And how can it be ensured that the specific expertise of NGOs expressed in the material is compatible to the formal education system? These questions are analyzed in this article as well as the development process and the interests and claims negotiated alongside the recently published Greenpeace educational material „Heiße Zeiten – Klima und Gesellschaft im Wandel“.
