Societies have developed historically and can also be formed. This is what civic education and political educacation tell us. It enables individuals to develop an identity and to participate in the process of shaping society. The object of this research focus are the ideas with regard to society, the individual, and the state as well as their expansion and reflection within and outside the educational context. A further focus is participation in the social discourse. In addition, the professional behaviour of the teaching staff and concepts on which these are founded are researched. The findings flow into the development of teaching materials.
