The support of family is an important factor in stimulating the development of a young person. Due to this factor a Romani child strives to acquire new information about the world in which he or she lives. School is one of the places, in which the processes of learning and social integration take place. The state (in an attempt to encourage Romani families to participate in social-cultural life) created the “State Programme for the Romani Community in Poland”. As a part of this programme at the break of the year 2012/2013 I conducted integration workshop classes in public elementary schools in Wrocław. The children of the pre-school unit from the Polish and Romani communities participated in the classes. I have used the qualitative approach in the interpretative paradigm. I have used the method of research in action. I have presented the conclusions from the participative observation, which I have conducted in the group, researching the engagement of children in the classes, their interest in the topic, the interactions during the workshops, their attendance as well as the attitude of parents towards the classes. The pre-school children were interested in learning about a different culture. They all willingly participated in common fun activities and the positive feedback from the parents was reflected in practice. The participation in the classes was highly active, the homework was well prepared and the level of children's attendance was high. The support of parents turned out to be necessary in encouraging the natural state of curiosity of the children.
Działania Związku Pracy Obywatelskiej Kobiet na rzecz pomocy rodzinie
(Karkonoska Państwowa Szkoła Wyższa w Jeleniej Górze, 2013) Piwowarczyk, Mirosław; Uniwersytet Wrocławski
The Women Citizens’ Work Association (Związek Pracy Obywatelskiej Kobiet – ZPOK) (1928–1939) was one of the most influential women’s organisations related to the Sanation movement in the Interwar Period in Poland. At the time of its greatest development it included nearly 50,000 members. Its work was carried out by Agencies located all over the country. The Association had ideological and political ties to the Sanation movement, which is why its main aim was the development of the political state-forming thought of Józef Piłsudski. In the political aspect it would attempt to implement the rules of real democracy by disseminating and developing the idea of Polish statehood and by making it possible for women to have direct influence on political, social, economic, and cultural life of Poland. In the social aspect, the Association would establish and develop a number of social services agencies, educational institutions, and cooperative manufactories, which were intended to, among others, support and empower the family, thus strengthening the new state. The main aim of the ZPOK was to help the family, especially mothers and children from the families of the unemployed, the poor, the ill, and alcoholics. The help would take on many forms. The Association established and ran i.a. Houses of Mother and Child, mother and child care centres, nurseries, kindergartens and Jordan gardens, day rooms, summer camps and day camps. It provided food for children of unemployed parents and organised legal, medical, psychological, and pedagogical advice centres. The Association would address issues crucial to the family, including upbringing, legal, economic, moral, and ethical problems. The broad scope of the Association’s work allowed for the strengthening of the family’s position in social, political, and moral life and for the improvement of the quality of life of numerous families in the Interwar Period.
Rodzina zagrożona wykluczeniem społecznym – przykłady dobrych praktyk w zakresie systemowych form pomocy
(Zakład Historii Edukacji Instytutu Pedagogiki Uniwersytetu Wrocławskiego, Wydział Nauk Humanistycznych i Społecznych Karkonoskiej Państwowej Szkoły Wyższej w Jeleniej Górze, 2012) Gandecka, Kamila; Uniwersytet Wrocławski
A systemic approach is essential in working with the families threatened by social exclusion. This is expressed both in the perception of the family as a whole and in the planning of interdisciplinary strategies of support. This trend is reflected in – among others – the relevant legal acts on social assistance in Poland. Moreover, it also gives the opportunity to create a network of local support in which a strategy of solving social problems – particularly within the family itself – is prepared in cooperation with the local administration. Therefore, the purpose of my article is to present the good practices in providing assistance and support for the families in difficult life situations. The selected programs that have been implemented by Mercury Foundation from Walbrzych since 2006 constitute the research material.
Cechy charakteru czy kompetencje i umiejętności – dylematy rodzica XXI wieku
(Zakład Historii Edukacji Instytutu Pedagogiki Uniwersytetu Wrocławskiego, Wydział Nauk Humanistycznych i Społecznych Karkonoskiej Państwowej Szkoły Wyższej w Jeleniej Górze, 2012) Jezierska-Wiejak, Elżbieta; Uniwersytet Wrocławski
Who do we want to educate? Happy, kind and trustworthy people or perhaps individuals equipped with many competences and skills – this is a dilemma of contemporary parents, teachers, and educators. From the analysis of interviews with parents whose children start their first year in nursery school there emerges a disturbing vision of the characteristics of the contemporary man. Globalisation questions the process of forming such traits as kindness, authenticity, and beauty, which shape morality. Instead of this triad that determines the relations between people as well as between people and the world, some specific competences and skills are preferred in the education of children.
Rodzina – jej wartość i znaczenie z perspektywy życia Dorosłych Dzieci Rozwiedzionych Rodziców
(Karkonoska Państwowa Szkoła Wyższa w Jeleniej Górze, 2012) Piotrowska, Maja; Uniwersytet Wrocławski
We live in a world where our values and beliefs passed from one generation to another are being redefined. The notions of marriage and family also receive different meanings. Persons involved in my research often stressed the great value they associate with this smallest social group. I think that their opinions and beliefs are the consequence of the fact that my interlocutors – as they admitted – did not experience things they were talking about themselves. On the other hand, their opinions about marriage and family are full of uncertainty and fear of impermanence. Such anxieties related to these crucial forms of relationships are typical of adult people. They do not seem to believe that their relationships can last forever. It is especially marriage that they see as impermanent, weak, and unstable, and as something likely to decay. They believe that the memories concerning their parents' divorce are proofs of their theories.
