Sharing European Histories- Teaching Strategies

Donor & Partner

The project has been implemented with the support of the Evens Foundation.

One of the concrete outcomes of Sharing European Histories is the development of 5 teaching strategies, developed by a team of authors (please see the SEH project page for further information). These innovative strategies challenge how history education has been taught in the past and aim to teach the complexity and multiplicity of European Histories, in order to better understand the continent. The five strategies developed are:

  • Using stories of the past to teach students about its complexity
  • Using commemorative practices to teach
    that history is a constructed narrative
  • Using object biographies to reveal how
    our pasts are interconnected
  • Analysing historical figures to understand how and why they are perceived
    differently
  • Studying histories of ideas to learn about
    continuity and change

Please find below the publication of the strategies, which can be downloaded, in the following 9 languages; English, German, Greek, Polish, Portuguese, Serbian, Spanish, Turkish, and Ukrainian:
