The Role of Intergenerational Learning in Building National Identity and in Children's Patriotic Education
Somîtca, Ana-Maria; Stan, Cristian Nicolae
Romanian Review of Geographical Education, v8 n1 p24-40 Feb 2019
This research presents two educational activities realized in the 2017-2018 school year, at the Extended Programme Kindergarten, from "Nicolai Nanu" Technological High School in Bro?teni, Suceava County, Romania. In both activities, there were involved representatives from three generations and the preschoolers had an active role. At the activity 'I'm proud to be Romanian', representatives from preschoolers' families were actively involved in some activities, generating interactions between generations. At the demonstrative activity 'I'm Romanian, brave Romanian', there was an intense interaction between the pre-primary school teacher and the preschoolers and a little interaction between the invited pre-primary teachers and the preschoolers. Both activities had the role to enable the preschoolers' patriotic education and to make them aware of their local, regional and national identity through discussions about the national symbols, about the country and the people, through the intonation of the national anthem and of other patriotic songs, through wearing traditional costumes and through the execution of some Romanian dances.
