Qualification for Language Promotion
Programs and Projects for the Professionalisization of Schoolteachers and Educational Staff
The 13th supplement of the DDS deals with programs and projects for the professionalization of schoolteachers and educational staff. It has been emphasized time and again that systematic language facilitation is necessary for all pupils, especially for those who grow up multilingually. It follows, firstly, that we need different concepts, which are adapted to the respective linguistic requirements, and, secondly, that various concepts and programs are required which include all parties involved in the educational process: children and youth, parents, and especially pre-school educational staff, schoolteachers, and those who are teaching this staff.
On the one hand, the articles of this supplement consider programs, which shall ensure that all teachers in all phases of teacher training have to deal with questions of linguistic education, and on the other hand, they present results from various (inter-)national empirical studies, which show how broad the spectre of the issues to be studied is, in order that linguistic education can be implemented in the multilinguistic school at all levels and that all actors will be involved.
