The project will focus on the development of a teacher guide offering examples for a wide variety of approaches to history teaching, its dissemination and its implementation by in-service training and History Teachers Associations. Every history teacher in Estonia and Latvia will receive a copy of the teacher guide.
The new standards for history education in Estonia and Latvia require alternative approaches for history education. In these standards a wide range on content-based criteria are merged with modern approaches. During the project, the participants can find out by experience how far it is possible to work with these new guidelines. As a result the standards will be evaluated.
The project will develop practical examples of ways of teaching, using historical topics, which merge with the traditional curriculum.
The project will also focus on the integration of minority teachers of history into the History Teachers Associations and their network.
