History without Frontiers: A Practical Guide to International History Projects in Schools in Europe.
This guide presents a wide cross-section of approaches, experiences, and ideas for a useful starting point for those thinking of establishing an international initiative in history teaching. This guide grew out of a meeting of representatives of innovative history projects in the Council of Europe. The projects identified offer approaches to teaching history in Europe in the spirit of the Vienna Declaration and provide curriculum developers and teachers with practical advice. Contents include a foreword and two sections. Section 1, "Descriptions of the Projects," contains (1) "The Projects" and (2) "Description of the Projects." Section 2, "How to Set Up An International School History Project," includes (1) "Selection of a Topic"; (2) "The Final Product"; (3) "Who Will Take Part?"; (4) "Finding Contacts"; (5) "Managing Your Project"; (6) "Visits and Exchanges"; (7) "Electronic Communications"; (8) "Raising Money"; and (9) "Postscript." Appendices offer a selected bibliography, list of member associations of the European Standing Conference of History Teachers' Associations (EUROCLIO), and a list of participants. (EH)
