In Europe Schools: Join now!

We have wonderful news! We are delighted to announce that the In Europe Schools Project will be continued after a successful pilot phase! In 2019, EuroClio and Dutch Broadcasting Company VPRO joined forces to create online and free educational resources, based on the VPRO documentary series on Modern European History ‘In Europe – History Caught in the Act’, presented by Dutch best-selling author Geert Mak. In the past months, more than 40 schools across Europe were matched and worked with two Education Kits: Difficult History and Migration.

The Project will start with a new round of school matchings in October and November 2020, introducing two new additional Education Kits: Climate Change and Gender Equality. The newly developed @Home Tutorial provides tips and tricks on how to complete the project from home, when you are not able leaving the house. This makes the Project perfectly suitable for teachers and students in times of social distancing and closed schools, as it provides a great sense of flexibility!

Registrations are now open here! Make sure to register as soon as possible, so we can match you with another school in Europe. Don’t miss this opportunity to participate in a one-of-a-kind exchange project!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Teaching About Contested International Issues: An Introduction to Brown University’s Choices Program

Brown University’s Choices Program invites educators to join a two-day, introductory immersion workshop on their curriculum and approach for teaching about contested international issues.

9:00 am — 3:30 pm at The American School of Barcelona (Spain)

Brown's inquiry approach to controversial issues—both current and historical—will support your students to:

build historical thinking skills such as sourcing, contextualization and chronological reasoning;
create persuasive arguments;
analyze evidence to determine fact from opinion;
build consensus across differences to sharpen civic literacy skills.

This interactive workshop is appropriate for middle and high school history, social studies, and humanities teachers, including AP and IB educators.
