Description

The resource is designed for current or would-be teachers of history. Stemming from both the EU documents on the current state of youth, history and societal values and works in didactics by teaching professionals, the resource develops an approach to building a multi-layered perspective in a history classroom.

Case study

The resource may be used in its entirety as a guidebook as it first provides the theoretical background into the selected approach and then a number of activities aimed at enhancing the learner's critical thinking skills as well as the exploratory environment of a history class. One activity, for instance, is An Avatar (p. 17 ff.), in which the participants are placed in a given historical context and are asked to respond to a specific event. This role-play is carefully explicated, its didactic goals and objectives presented and motivated, following which illustrative examples are provided. Another example is emotion cards (pp. 27-28), which may be printed, cut out and distributed to students to speak about their emotions upon covering a given topic, thereby raising their awareness of both the complexity of the phenomena explored as well as their own personality.

Guidelines

1. Download the resource.
2. Use it as a guidebook or an activity book.
