Die Stundenplanung folgt dem Konzept der Lernzielorientierung, denn durch die angegebenen Lernziele wird der Lernprozess der SchülerInnen organisiert und strukturiert. Die Lernziele knüpfen dabei an die Fähigkeiten der SchülerInnen an, die in den vorangegangenen Sequenzen erarbeitet wurden und sind prozess- bzw. ergebnisorientiert.

Kriege in Syrien und anderen Ländern Vorderasiens führen aktuell dazu, dass Menschen aus ihrer Heimat fliehen und in europäischen Ländern Schutz und Sicherheit suchen. Mittlerweile treffen zahlreiche dieser Schutzsuchenden (auch Flüchtlinge genannt) in Deutschland und auch Halle/Saale ein. Politik und Bürger sind teilweise überfordert und fühlen sich nicht immer verantwortlich für die scenario der Flüchtlinge. Dies zeigt sich u.a. in fremdenfeindlichen Verhaltensweisen. Die thematische Behandlung einer Geschichte in der eine individual ihre Lebensgrundlage verliert und Hilfe bei ihren Mitmenschen sucht, hat für die SchülerInnen damit eine Gegenwartsbedeutung.
Da die SchülerInnen auch in der Zukunft als Teil einer Gemeinschaft mit anderen Menschen (u.a. Flüchtlingen) zusammenleben, hat die Stunde ebenfalls eine Zukunftsbedeutung für die Lerngruppe. Die Erfahrungen und Möglichkeiten verantwortungsbewusst am gesellschaftlichen Leben teilzunehmen, entwickeln dabei eine wichtige Qualifikation für das weitere Leben der SchülerInnen.
Die kooperative Lernform Think-Pair-Share bietet dabei jedem/jeder SchülerIn die Möglichkeit miteinander zu kommunizieren und sich über ethische Fragestellungen mit Gleichaltrigen auszutauschen.

The research of every topic attracts on more than a few assets, together with movie, memoir, poetry, written and oral background, journalism, and political speeches. not like reviews eager about representations of the battle as a wrestle event, The Scar That Binds opens and examines an unexplored serious house via a spotlight at the results of the Vietnam battle on American tradition. the result's a hugely unique and compelling interpretation of the advance of an ideology of solidarity in our culture.
