L'introduction de la dimension interculturelle dans les nouveaux curricula : l'enseignant grec face à l'innovation

Abstract : Introducing interculturalism in the new curriculum and the textbooks in primary education constitutes an educational innovation integrated in the Greek educational system that was put into effect in 2005 in order to address the new social needs created by the sociopolitical and economical changes which transformed the Greek society into a multicultural one .The objective of our research is to trace, on one hand, interculturalism as an educational innovation in the new curriculum and the textbooks of primary schools, and, on the other hand, the space given by primary school teachers – both generalists and subject specialists – to the content and the intercultural activities as these appear in their discourse. According to the primary hypothesis of this research, the classroom practices, as these are presented by primary school teachers, provide, in their majority, little space to the content and the corresponding activities, taking into consideration the linguistic and cultural heterogeneity of students. For these purposes a combined methodology was adopted – specifically a quantitative (questionnaires addressed to 96 teachers) and a qualitative (analysis of interview data from 24 teachers and the content of the official documents) approach. According to the findings of this research, our primary hypothesis might be validated. However, some of the subordinate theoretical conjectures of our primary hypothesis were not validated, calling us for further research.
