03 SES 14 A, Curriculum Change and the Key Competences
The paper proposes a curriculum framework for teaching citizenship from the ideas developed by Roberto Esposito. Roberto Esposito is a well-known Italian philosopher whose work has only recently begun to be translated into English (2008, 2009ª,2011) . Although, as noted Timothy Campbell (2006), all concepts that Esposito has analyzed and developed, is precisely the Bios and biopolitics that have been the focus of analysis in english language , we would like to focus also on the communitas and the inmunitas. Not only because they are the most basic concepts of his intellectual development, but because they represent a first and, in our view, a successful approach to important educational thematics, very important for the development of citizenship education (Banks 2007) ). The topics that were introduced in the Education for Citizenship, illuminated by the thought of Esposito, were the following: How to build citizenship, understood as an experience of com-munitas and inmunitas from life (bio-politics)? How to analyze the current political philosophical theory from strands of biographical subjects that share the subject? How to deepen these new categorical records of political theory, connected to the curriculum? The curricular structure of the course called "Education and Citizenship" is a subject that the entire university community of all careers forming secundary teachers at the Catholic University of Valparaiso transversely taught. The objectives of this elective course, are linked to provide a curricular space that allows professional future, demonstrate the educational event in its teleological dimension as a political fact, while politically it questioned regarding the well (fair) in the coexistence cohabitation. The course aims to encourage the development of skills and attitudes addressing theoretical and practical elements from the experience of citizenship, rather than the classical subject, anchored in civic knowledge, rights and dutieswhich presents the meaning of citizenship in a homogenizing (Norman and Kymplicka). With the help of Roberto Esposito, we open the inherited concepts of political philosophy through a process not only of de-construction and interrogation of metaphysical, unilinear and closed concepts of modern political theory character, but from experience and ways of life that that have determined the civic identity of students. Therefore, an essential part of the pedagogical work and 'deconstruction' and analysis is in the biographical accounts that must prepare students for the courses. These stories are one of the key sources for reconsideration of its citizens and to deepen rather handicapped and contracted forms of community in which they have been living so far (Clandinin & Connelly 2000).
