People on the Move – Why Do People Disagree About Migration?

Workshop by Benny Christensen, Learning to Disagree Team

This workshop is the product of the Learning to Disagree project. This project was initiated in response to the needs of educators who experience difficulties in addressing sensitive and controversial issues in their classrooms. The project, now in its final stages, offers trainings and support materials to teachers to face these topics head-on with their students. These materials aim at teaching students vital skills such as the ability to listen, to consider alternative interpretations, and the ability of interacting with people that they disagree with in a constructive manner.

Benny is one of the core members of the Learning to Disagree team. His workshop will focus on developing lesson plans on the topic of migration to Europe, so you can apply these lesson plans directly to your classroom. Migration is not a new phenomenon, yet it remains the cause of many heated debates, not least in classrooms. Therefore, Benny designed this learning activity around the topic. Via group work and general discussions, you will engage in a variety of strategies that focus on dialogue, debate and discussion. Which outcomes and activities are best suited for class work on this sensitive topic?  And how can you use assessment to design such a learning activity? Share your experiences and ideas with European colleagues!

Moving Beyond Perceived Borders: Dealing with Disagreement in Contested Borders

Workshop by Amaia Lamikiz and Angela Bermudez, Learning to Disagree Team

Borders divide land into countries, sometimes creating new divisions within communities, or even between them. Where a border is placed is a highly contested issue and to this day many borders cause serious conflict.

This workshop is the product of the Learning to Disagree project. This project was initiated in response to the needs of educators who experience difficulties in addressing sensitive and controversial issues in their classrooms. The project, now in its final stages, offers training and support materials for teachers to face these topics head-on with their students. These materials aim to teach students vital skills such as the ability to listen, to consider alternative interpretations, as well as the ability of interacting in a constructive manner with people they disagree with.

Amaia and Angela are core members of the Learning to Disagree project.  In this workshop they will aim to present the work they have developed. Starting with a general introduction on how the multiperspectivity approach can help us to work on contested issues in the classroom, they will then present the materials we have created to help our students reflect and debate on the topic of borders. We will present the sources we have gathered from different European contexts  as examples of a variety of perspectives about contested borders and we will suggest some possible activities and strategies to work with students in order to make them aware of how communities draw their borders, and how we can deal with disagreement in cases of controversy.

The Benefit of Hindsight

Workshop by Valerio Bernardi, Learning to Disagree Team

This workshop is the product of the Learning to Disagree project. This project was initiated in response to the needs of educators who experience difficulties in addressing sensitive and controversial issues in their classrooms. The project, now in its final stages, offers trainings and support materials for teachers to face these topics head first with their students, subsequently teaching students vital skills such as the ability to listen, to consider alternative interpretations, and the ability of interacting with people that they disagree with in a constructive manner.

In August 1991, a cargo ship named Vlora arrived from Albania with 20,000 people on board in the Bari seaport, a major city of south-east Italy. The Italian Government decided to authorize the ship to come alongside the quay in Bari. After one or two days the immigrants were brought to the old Stadium in Bari called Victory. They were segregated for several days and most of them were repatriated to Albania. During those days there were also some riots  in the stadium . In the decades to come many more ships like the Vlora arrived in Italy from various places.

Valerio is one of the core members of the Learning to Disagree team and created the learning activity about the Vlora. In this workshop you will partake in said learning activity and subsequently you will be introduced to an activity that will allow students to have the possibility to compare migration in the past with migration today. Even more so, it will help students develop an understanding of the motivation of migration, empathy with the actors involved in (the history of) migration, and develop a positive attitude towards people with a different cultural background. The latter is specifically important as understanding of the other is needed to foster good dialogue and communication.

Leaders in Times of Turmoil

Workshop by Zsolt Vódli and Juraj Varga, Learning to Disagree Team

When leaders make decisions about letting their allies invade their country, are they heroes or traitors?

This is the question your students should be able to answer by the end of the learning activity developed by Zsolt and Juraj. During this workshop they will discuss the contents of the learning activity, how to use it in your classroom, and how to assess your students during this learning activity.  This activity will help your students develop a plethora of skills, abilities and knowledge on historical figures and events.

The learning activity allows students to work in groups and discuss provocative statements; they will have to decide whether they agree, strongly agree, disagree or strongly disagree with these statements. Students cannot just say what they think in these discussions, they have to substantiate their opinions with an explanation or evidence. This learning activity provides students with the opportunity to understand the actions of leaders and people in a historically rather debated era. At the same time, it also gives them the opportunity to learn certain verbal competence while practicing critical thinking.

By the end of this learning activity your students will have developed their ability to evaluate different viewpoints, have learnt to express their opinion on sensitive and controversial topics, and further developed their critical thinking.

This workshop is the product of the Learning to Disagree project. This project was initiated in response to the needs of educators who experience difficulties in addressing sensitive and controversial issues in their classrooms. The project, now in its final stages, offers trainings and support materials for teachers to face these topics head-on with their students.

Discussion ‘Tables’ on “What is quality history education?”

Do History Educators agree? Session moderated by EuroClio

What are the main features of quality history education? 

The answer to this question is ever changing, however, it is also the main driving force behind EuroClio’s work. Since 1992 it  has been EuroClio’s mission to inspire and support educators to engage learners in innovative and responsible history and citizenship education. During this session, participants will discuss what are the main features of quality history education, and how EuroClio can strive to promote them in its everyday work. 

As good quality history education is ever changing, the results of the discussion tables will feed into the revision of the EuroClio Manifesto.

The specific topics of the discussion tables will be confirmed soon. 

27th Annual Conference

The discussion tables are part of the 27th EuroClio Annual Conference on Controversy and Disagreement in the Classroom. You can find more information on the Annual Conference, including the full programme, on the Annual Conference main page.

Surviving Under Pressure: Surviving in a War Context (WW2 and Algerian War of Independence)

Workshop by Ann-Laure Lieval, Burcu Cingay, and Vassiliki Yannou, Learning to Disagree Team

This workshop is the product of the Learning to Disagree project and will help those who want to engage all students, even those who do not usually speak up, in debate.  This project was initiated in response to the needs of educators who experience difficulties in addressing sensitive and controversial issues in their classrooms. The project, now in its final stages, offers trainings and support materials for teachers to face these topics head-on with their students. These materials aim to teach students vital skills such as the ability to listen, to consider alternative interpretations, and the ability of interacting with people that they disagree with in a constructive manner.

Ann-Laure, Burcu, and Vassiliki, all members of the core team of Learning to Disagree. They have blended three new learning activities into one workshop.

They will introduce the teaching strategy of the “silent placemat conversation”.  This strategy has been developed to facilitate calm, thoughtful and democratic discussions in classrooms, as all discussions are conducted in silence. Students will be asked to contribute to the discussion by writing their arguments on paper. This workshop will introduce you  to the workings of this activity, whilst also addressing how this activity can be adopted to your classroom. Additionally, this workshop will introduce the “K-W-L chart” assessment strategy. This strategy teaches students to reflect on what they know and what they want to know prior to an activity and what they have learned after the completion of a lesson (What do I know, what do I want to learn, what have I learnt). This workshop will use three different case studies and nine viewpoints.

People on the Move: The Arrival of Migrants to Europe in 2015

Workshop by Bistra Stoimenova, Learning to Disagree Team

Bistra is one of the core members of the Learning to Disagree project, and this workshop is one of the results of said project.  Learning to Disagree  was initiated in response to the needs of educators who experience difficulties in addressing sensitive and controversial issues in their classrooms. The project, now in its final stages, offers trainings and support materials for teachers to face these topics head-on with their students. These materials aim to teach students vital skills such as the ability to listen, to consider alternative interpretations, and the ability of interacting with people that they disagree with in a constructive manner.

Students develop critical thinking and the vital competences for dialogue and discussion in classrooms. This workshop is designed for history teachers and civic educators who want to foster the development of these skills.

The lesson plan discussed in this workshop aims to do so by having students deal with a diverse range of sources representing different viewpoints on migration to Europe in 2015 and take part in a discussion on migration to Europe based on recent events. This will help students to develop their knowledge and critical understanding of the complexity of reactions to migration, specifically the reaction to the arrival of the refugees in 2015 and 2016, analyse diverse historical resources, discuss and express their opinions, develop their cooperation skills, and their values of human dignity and human rights.
