Focus Topic: Issues and Problems of Addressing in Schools
Pedagogical interactions and school development processes are complex proceedings of addressing. This refers not only to the concrete communicative discourse between actors in the educational field, but also to the question, which practices of acknowledgment and constructions of difference are structurally expressed by doing so, i.e., who is implicitly and explicitly addressed and positioned by whom and who is thus (not) acknowledged.
Against the background of this comprehension of addressing, the focus topic theoretically and empirically analyzes various pedagogical contexts, processes, and modes of action. The contributions focus on different groups of actors (e. g., educational administration, teachers, parents) on various action levels (school as system, school as organization), both with regard to diverse challenging contexts of mutual perception and addressing and to concrete processes of handling with differences and of acknowledgment practices. On this basis, concrete findings for classroom practice are developed.
