Theoretical Perspectives and Practical Strategies of Curricular Integration in Achieving Religious Education

Constantin Cucoş

Recent legislative changes regarding the status of religious education in schools bring about the rethinking of the content of this school subject. Pupils ‘attending Religious Education classes only upon explicitly written request of their parents or of their legal tutors and also the possibility of choosing between Religious Education and Moral and Civic Education classes make us think about restructuring the knowledge and values content of this subject. In what follows we put forth several ways of reconsidering the content of Religious Education with a view to achieving cultural, inter-confessional and interdisciplinary integration, as a way of increasing the interest of the pupils, teachers and parents in this school subject.
