An electronic e-book

Shared histories for a Europe without dividing linesThe main outcome of the project is this interactive e‐book aimed at teacher trainers, teachers in training, practising teachers and their pupils.

The e‐book contains examples of teaching materials relating to significant historical examples of interactions and convergences within Europe along with strategies, methods and teaching techniques directed towards gaining a fuller awareness of these interactions and convergences.

These materials have been developed within the framework of an active methodology and teaching approach, multiperspectivity and a focus on the acquisition of identified key skills.

The Council of Europe hopes that this pedagogical tool will play the role of a navigator guiding history educators towards the goal of building a more peaceful future based on respect for dignity, human rights and fundamental freedoms; motivating them to act creatively; and helping them to find their way of teaching history in the diverse world of the 21st century.
