I. Cross-sectoral objectives

According to the concept "Federal uniform standards for naturalisation", which was approved by the Conference of the Interior Ministers and senators of the Länder on 31 May/1 June 2007 in Berlin, the mediation of basic civic basic knowledge as well as of the Principles and values of our Constitution the objective of the naturalisation course. The knowledge conveyed there serves the acquisition of the understanding of principles and structure of the German state system as well as of the social-political processes related to the acquisition of the Basic Law. The naturalization course is intended to enable naturalization applicants to recognize their civil rights and obligations and to be able to actively exercise their duties. The framework curriculum takes this objective into account in the structure and design of the curriculum.

II. Curriculum measures

1) Link with the integration course/orientation course

The naturalization course builds on the topics of the orientation course in accordance with § 43 (3) sentence 1 of the Residence Act. It thus covers the subject areas "Life in Democracy" (in the orientation course: "Politics in Democracy"), "History and Responsibility" and "Man and Society". While the orientation course provides above all basic knowledge, the naturalization course covers the subject areas, expanding, in-depth and with a view to future civic action possibilities. The focus is on "Living in Democracy". In particular, the following topics are to be addressed:

2) Structure of the curriculum

The curriculum is divided into the following five modules:

Module I: Introduction to the course
Module II: Life in Democracy
Part 1: Democracy and participation in political design
Part 2: Rights and obligations
Part 3: Conflict resolution in the democratic society
Part 4: Special features of the federal state
Module III: History and responsibility
Module IV: Human and Society
Module V: Course Completion


The learning contents of modules II to IV are arranged around key topics. These include the core contents of the naturalization course, which are intended to acquire the necessary knowledge and understanding of the knowledge. The key topics are linked to the further learning content in close contact with the content. Starting from them, the individual topics of the respective module should be dealt with in the classroom.

The selection of topics in the curriculum for the naturalization course is based on the question of what concrete learning contents fall under the requirements of "civic basic knowledge" as well as "principles and values of our constitution". Learning content with special federal land reference is taken into account, but only those related to democratic partial hawning possibilities. The country-specific learning content can be developed in cooperation with the National Central Office for Political Education.

a. Life in Democracy

The area of "Life in Democracy" is the core area of the naturalisation course. The learning contents are aligned with the later civic participation possibilities of the naturalization applicants. This means that the nature and significance of the various forms of participation in the political and social life in Germany (elections, party and association memberships, etc.) are to be shown. Based on this, it is the framework within which the participation of the new citizen in the community is carried out, namely the fundamental principles, values and norms (fundamental rights, rights and obligations, conflict resolution), the central Functional mechanisms of parliamentary democracy and its structure and structures.

History and responsibility

For the understanding of the Federal Republic of Germany, important stations of recent German history, in particular the path to parliamentary democracy, are to be mediated as a background of knowledge. Reference is made to the Parliament in the Paulskirche in 1848/49 and its influence on the Basic Law as well as on the different positions of the People's Representation in the German Empire and in the Weimar Republic. In the example of the National Socialist dictatorship, the consequences of the negation of the rule of law and democracy and the consequent responsibility for the preservation of the democratic constitution are shown. In addition to the founding of the Federal Republic of Germany, the topics of the GDR, German division and reunification are to be mediated as important stages of the German post-war history. In principle, historical data should be the focus of this course module rather than historical data.
Since the history of Germany has been very much influenced by immigration, the topic of migration history is also included in the topic catalogue. This topic is also a good starting point for the personal migration history of the students.
The development process of the Federal Republic of Germany is to be conveyed in the context of the progress of European integration and the growing importance of European integration. In addition, this issue has its relevance by the fact that foreigners with naturalisation become not only German nationals, but-if they are third-country nationals-also EU citizens.

c. Man and Society

In this thematic field, fundamental aspects of social culture and/or culture will be developed. of social coexistence in Germany. This thematic focus also takes into account Germany's imprint by migration processes, which is why the learning contents named at this point in the concept are attributed to the core population of the basic civic basic knowledge.
Important content from the module "Life in Democracy", e.g. For example, individual fundamental rights or the topic of "dealing with conflicts" must be taken up and set in relation to the social interaction in an intercultural context. In addition to topics related to religious and cultural coexistence in federal Germany, cultural change as a result of immigration is also to be illustrated.
In order to look more closely at the social dimension of culture, the subject of education has also been included in the learning content catalogue. Education is to be mediated as a central prerequisite for equal participation in social-political life in Germany.

3) Conditions on the part of the participants

a. Language requirements

Participants in the naturalisation course should have the language level B1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). This is the only way to ensure that both the teaching material is sufficiently understood and adequately followed by the teaching staff and the fellow learners. In particular in the field of reading comprehension, the language level B1 should be mastered safely.

b. Self-learning

Although all content of the civic test is the subject of the course, participants should be able to use basic learning techniques, such as post-marketing in a dictionary or in encyclopaedia, self-contained co-writing in the Teaching, organization of the workplace and working materials, self-employed preparation and reprocessing, and repeating the teaching material. These learning techniques enable participants to prepare individual and intensive preparation for the test beyond what is going on in the course and increase the chances of success in the final test.

c. willingness to participate actively in the course

The action-oriented approach of the naturalisation course requires the willingness of the individual to actively participate in the design of the teaching process. Only in this way can the participants benefit fully from the teaching of the content in the course.

4) Methodiddidactic principles in the naturalisation course

The methodical and didactic design of the naturalization course is based on the following basic principles:

Participant orientation
The orientation of the topics and their design are based on the life of the participants ("Connection Learning"). The experience and prior knowledge of the participants will always be taken into account.
Action and Subject Orientation
The participants should be encouraged to participate actively in the course of the course and to participate in the course of the course. Such an activation can be achieved by means of role plays, projects, etc. Learning is seen as a holistic process, in which the participants ' path to independent knowledge is the focus of interest.
Multi-perspective theme preparation
The teaching should not lead to a one-dimensional representation of a (majority) opinion, but rather make controversial points of view clear and discuss. Participants should be led in appropriate places to change the perspective of the matter and thus to practice basic conditions for understanding and tolerance.
Use of adult-oriented teaching forms
The relationship between participants and teachers is characterized by respectful treatment of a learning partnership. The exchange always takes place at the same level of eye and acknowledges the competences of the counter and its benefits for the learning process.
Use of changing social forms
The use of changing social forms enables the selection of a form suitable for the teaching of the respective subject matter, which is also intended to promote the self-employed learning of learning contents by the participants. In the selection and design of the social forms, the previous learning experiences and the learning requirements of the participants must be taken into account.
Use of a variety of methods
In view of the multiplicity and complexity of the subjects of the naturalisation course, a variety of methods is necessary for an adequate teaching of the content, the respective selection of which is at the discretion of the teacher. The selection of methods also means an entry to the needs and needs of the respective course group.

In order to be able to communicate factual knowledge and knowledge in a comprehensible way in the field of politics, history and culture, the materials used in the course are to be prepared from the following points of view:
Linguistically simple language
With reference to a different language level of the participants in the German language, all teaching materials should be oriented at the language level B1 of the CEFR and should be revised in language didactics. In spite of the need for the use of specialist vocabulary, the language and the language used in the course should be kept as simple as possible.
Elemental teaching of the subject
The subject-matter dealt with is limited to the fundamental aspects necessary for its understanding.
Inductive procedure
The use of the teaching material should usually be carried out using concrete examples by means of an inductive procedure.
Visualize
The focus is on the preparation of the topics and contents. This can be promoted through the use of various media (print, film, television, photos, statistics, graphics, etc.).


5) Short-range

The naturalization course comprises 60 lessons (UE) of 45 minutes. It is recommended that a daily teaching time of 6 UE should not be exceeded. In this way, a corresponding time frame is created in order to extend and in-depth and with the help of participant-oriented methods the planned contents compared with the 45 UE orientation course.

The module "Man and Society" aims at various aspects of social coexistence in Germany. The participants are interested in interculturality and cultural change. The concept of culture is to be understood in the sense of the naturalisation consent in such a way that it includes areas which influence the lives of the participants. They are to be induced to classify past experiences of their lives in Germany and to reflect on a peaceful and communal cooperation in a targeted manner. This debate can contribute to a reflection on our own location in this cultural environment and, in particular, can guide the view of already perceived or in the future perceptible part-habedices.
