The project is carried out with the synergic contributions of the Faculty of Law (Centro di Ricerche sulla Metodologia Giuridica, CERMEG, of the University of Trenti), local Istituti Scolastici Comprensivi and Centro Intercultura della P.A.T.
The research focus on the working out of an original model of argumentation & education in the context of the current law and values’ pluralism. The aim is to enhance intercultural dialogue and stimulate - since the first cycle of tuition - those skills required to get acknowledged with European and transnational sources of law, as well as being able to play an active citizenship, suited to the needs of the local school scenario.
In addition, the project aims at developing a tool fostering key competences in the European context of the qualifications for life-long learning, related to self-fulfilment, active citizenship and social cohesion. The use of fundamental argumentation techniques will enable first cycle students to learn concepts and sources of law (local, national, European and international) and, above all, develop cognitive skills in data analysis (legal, political, social) in the evaluation of controversial situations, in clear and proper presentation of individual requests, in reducing aggressive attitudes. The project also includes meta-didactic exercise in class.
