EDUCATIONAL CONTEXTS OF SHAPING YOUTH'S FEELING OF CULTURAL IDENTITY - STUDIES AND EXPERIENCES FROM THE POLISH-CZECH BORDERLAND (Polish title below)
(Polish title: Edukacyjne konteksty ksztaltowania poczucia tozsamosci kulturowej mlodziezy - studia i doswiadczenia z pogranicza polsko-czeskiego). The study explores educational contexts of shaping youth's feeling of cultural identity. Te opinions of lower secondary school teachers are referred to in regard to the tasks and contents of multi- and intercultural education implemented at this educational stage. Moreover, the new curriculum base for lower secondary schools is considered here and an analysis of a Polish language course book for grade I is undertaken with focus on the issues which are of interest to the authoress. What is also indicated are the consequences of educational practice for the identity of lower secondary school learners who live in the Polish-Czech borderland in Cieszyn Silesia. Every activity, also pedagogical, always takes place in particular conditions and is subject to the influence of environmental factors. Te need for situating the activities associated with identity shaping in particular contexts and considering them as outer determined in many ways is an obvious fact and does not require any justification. Due to the pedagogical thought, appropriate regard for the educational context as a factor explaining the presence, contents, course and results of educational practice in the learner's identity is far from sufficient. Therefore, this is worth closer consideration.
