Das Unterrichtsfach Werte und Normen (German Edition) by Martina Langen

By Martina Langen

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Ethik, notice: 1,0, Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, 14 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Bildung und Erziehung in der Schule dienen einer umfassenden Persönlichkeitsentwicklung. Die jungen Menschen sollen dazu befähigt werden, ihre eigene Lebenswelt zu gestalten und ihre Rechte und Pflichten in der Gesellschaft und Staat in freier Verantwortung wahrzunehmen. Dieser Auftrag der Schule ist festgelegt im Grundgesetz. Um diesen Bildungsauftrag zu erfüllen, muss die Schule über die Vermittlung von Kenntnissen und Fähigkeiten hinaus auch die Auseinandersetzung mit den Grundfragen der menschlichen Existenz und des sittlichen Verhaltens ermöglichen und so eine Gesamtorientierung vermitteln. Der Religionsunterricht hat nach Auffassung der Kirche eine umfassende Aufgabe für die Verwirklichung des erzieherischen Auftrages der Schule, die in dieser Weise von keinem anderen Schulfach wahrgenommen werden könne. Indem er die Fragen und Probleme der Menschen und der Welt in Offenheit für das Zeugnis der Schrift und den Glauben der Kirche zu klären sucht, leiste er einen entscheidenden Beitrag dazu, dass die Schüler ihr eigenes Leben und ihr Aufgabe in der Gemeinschaft der Menschen verstehen und anzunehmen lernen. 1 Für alle die aber, die den Kirchen nicht angehören oder sich vom Religionsunterricht abgemeldet haben, erscheint es richtig und notwenig, ihnen einen Unterricht zu geben der der Erziehung der Schüler zu verantwortungs- und wertbewussten Verhalten dient. „Angesichts eines möglichen Auseinander-fallens in gegenseitig sich abschottende Religionsgemeinschaften bedarf es eines allgemeinen und insoweit einheitlichen und verpflichtenden Nachdenkens über Werte, used to be die gleichberechtigte Vielfalt der Kulturen und Religionen überhaupt erst ermöglicht.“ 2 Deswegen ist die cause Begründung von Werten notwendig. Von Schülern muslimischen Glaubens z.B. kann nicht erwartet werden, dass sie akzeptieren, dass die Grundlagen der Ethik innerhalb des christlichen Religionsunterrichts vermittelt werden. Ziel meiner Arbeit ist es aufzuzeigen, dass das Unterrichtsfach Werte und Normen mehr als nur ein „Ersatzfach“ ist, indem ich die aktuelle scenario an der Schule erkläre und auf die Konzeption des Faches genauer eingehe.
