In der täglichen Praxis im Kindergarten fällt auf, dass das Außengelände der Einrichtungen von den pädagogischen Fachkräften als ‚Extra –Raum‘, der nicht in das gesamte pädagogische Konzept einer establishment einbezogen, sondern für bestimmte eng begrenzte Aktivitäten genutzt wird, betrachtet wird. Weitere persönliche Erfahrungen zeigen, dass sich die Begleitung der kindlichen Aktivitäten durch die pädagogischen Fachkräfte im Gegensatz zum Kindergartengebäude im Außengelände stark reduziert. Dies wird mit der zu gewährleistenden Aufsichtspflicht und der im Außengelände stattfindenden part des Freispiels der Kinder gerechtfertigt. Eine solche Argumentation ist natürlich völlig unzulässig, da die pädagogischen Fachkräfte Freispielphasen natürlich auch im Kindergartengebäude und nicht nur im Außengelände zu initiieren haben. Weiterhin bedeutet Freispielphase der Kinder auch nicht, dass sich die pädagogischen Fachkräfte an dieser Stelle zurückziehen, um mit KollegInnen (im schlechtesten Falle über inner most Themen) ins Gespräch zu kommen ohne die Kinder zu beaufsichtigen (Aufsichtspflicht gewährleisten). Vielmehr sollten die Fachkräfte diese Phasen nutzen, um zwei der zentralen Aufgaben ihrer Arbeit in den Fokus zu rücken, nämlich die Begleitung und die Beobachtung und Dokumentation kindlicher Bildungsprozesse. Österreicher (2012) führt noch weitere zeitlich-organisatorische Aspekte an, die von den Fachkräften als Gründe genannt werden, das Außengelände nicht zu nutzen. Hierzu zählen unter anderem Personalnot, die bereits erwähnten ungünstigen Wetterbedingungen und Programmpunkte, die aufgrund eines bestimmten Bildungsverständnisses als wichtiger angesehen werden. Pädagogische Fachkräfte sollten additionally den Wert des Draußen-Seins erkennen und sich im Klaren darüber sein, dass ihr Handeln und die Interaktion mit einem Kind/den Kindern nicht nur im Kindergartengebäude, sondern auch im Außengelände von hoher Bedeutung ist. Im Fokus dieser Studie steht die Frage, wie sich Interaktionsmomente zwischen pädagogischen Fachkräften und einem style/ Kindern im Außengelände bzw. im Gebäude der Kita vollziehen und ob es zwischen beiden Settings qualitative Unterschiede gibt.

New PDF release: Integrative Erziehung behinderter Kinder im Elementarbereich

By Brigitte Halfkann

ISBN-10: 3638940179

ISBN-13: 9783638940177

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 1987 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Kindergarten, Vorschule, frühkindl. Erziehung, notice: 2,0, Universität zu Köln (Pädagogische Fakultät), 20 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die vorliegende Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit Realisierungsmöglichkeiten integrativer Erziehung im Elementarbereich. Mein Interesse an dieser Thematik bildete sich im Verlauf meines Schwerpunktstudiums „Vorschulische Erziehung" heraus, das ich während des zweiten Studienabschnittes mit dem Wahlpflichtfach „Geistigbehindertenpädagogik" kombinierte. Durch die Zuordnung dieses Faches zum Schwerpunktthema, konzentrierte sich mein Interesse in erster Linie auf die Erziehung behinderter Kinder im Vorschulbereich und es stellte sich für mich die Frage, ob und unter welchen Bedingungen eine gemeinsame Erziehung behinderter und nichtbehinderter Kinder möglich ist.

Mein Versuch, mich anhand von Literatur zu diesem Thema über diesbezügliche Realisierungsmöglichkeiten, nicht zuletzt im Hinblick auf eine spätere berufliche Tätigkeit, zu informieren, verlief relativ unbefriedigend, da es sich bei der vorliegenden Literatur vorwiegend um einzelne Erfahrungsberichte, Modellbeschreibungen, Tagungsprotokolle und die Auseinandersetzung mit Teilaspekten des Themas handelt.

Auswertende und zusammenfassende, additionally systematische Literatur, die einen Überblick über bisherige Erfahrungen und allgemeine Hinweise für eine konkrete Realisierung gibt, habe ich dagegen nicht gefunden. Dies brachte mich auf den Gedanken, mich selbst im Rahmen meiner Diplomarbeit mit dem Thema auseinanderzusetzen.

Meine Arbeit soll einerseits einen Überblick über bisherige Modelle und Realisierungsversuche integrativer Erziehung geben und andererseits die Erfahrungen, die damit gemacht wurden, im Hinblick auf allgemeine Realisierungsmöglichkeiten auswerten.

Im einzelnen soll untersucht werden:
- unter welchen Bedingungen integrative Erziehung realisiert werden kann,
- ob integrative Erziehung sowohl für die behinderten, als auch die nichtbehinderten Kinder sinnvoll ist,
- wo integrative Erziehung auf Probleme und Grenzen stößt,
- used to be im Hinblick auf einzelne Behinderungsarten zu berücksichtigen ist,
- und welche Konsequenzen sich für die pädagogische Arbeit in integrativen Gruppen ergeben.

Darüberhinaus soll eine Zusammenstellung gezielter integrationsfördernder Maßnahmen durchgeführt werden, die eine praktische Hilfe zum Einstieg in integrative Arbeit geben soll.
