Teaching materials developped in the framework of the project
Teaching packs on the following topics are available, either as ISBN publications or as reports and contributions:
designed to integrate women's history into current classroom practice and redress the balance of gender with their view and perspective on history
looks at the reasons behind individual and group migration and the cultural and social exchanges which result from these movements
History based upon only one source is suspect and historical understanding must be derived from a confrontation of sources from cinema, television and museums, to state archives and oral history.
The project also took into account a new phenomenon: the 20th century can be studied through new media (radio, cinema, television, images…). It lead to a broad reflection around the challenge of the information and communication technologies facing history teaching and issues around sources in contemporary history.
The following topics were covered:
- sources in history teaching, and less used sources
- the misuse of history
- the use of information and communication technologies
- the cinema
- teaching about the Holocaust in the 21st century
Two comparative studies look into
- how Europe was represented in secondary school history textbooks over the last decades;
- the structures of initial training for history teachers in several European countries.
Finally, a Treaty Simulation took place, re-enacting the Peace Conference of 1919 and the Versailles Treaty.
