Teacher training seminar – presenting new educational materials
Past2Present4Future (P2P4F) is a youth remembrance activism initiative of four partner organizations from Serbia, Germany, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Croatia. Its goal was to engage young people from these countries in year-long activities focusing on remembrance and exploration of historical-contemporary dilemmas, focusing in specific on World War II and the lingering legacy of National Socialist crimes in Europe.
During the project, young people created new Memory Walk short films, as well as a short documentary following their discussions and experiences throughout the project.
We are organizing this teacher training seminar in order to present teachers with new lesson plans and history education materials created by young people for their peers.
Who can participate
We invite high school teachers (or teachers of final grades of elementary school), from the fields of history, civic education, philosophy, or ethics who will find the topics and materials the seminar will cover useful in their work. Teachers from other disciplines are welcome to apply too if they can demonstrate that attendance in the seminar will be useful in their work. Finally, future teachers of history or civic education as well youth workers active in the field of historical human rights education are also welcome to apply.
The language of the seminar will be English.
