History educators finalize a new multi-perspective teaching resource on sensitive and controversial history in the Western Balkans 1900-1945

bookThe latest EUROCLIO collaborative educational publication “Once Upon A Time … We Lived Together: Joint Work in a Multi-perspective Approach” is now available in 8 languages, for free in full, downloadable PDF Book format.

It contains 23 innovative exemplar (active learning) workshops focusing on some of the most sensitive and controversial topics of regional history between 1900-1945. The modules provide access to facilitate learning with over 1000 visual and written primary sources. It is collaboratively designed by over 60 educators, historians, curriculum developers and textbook authors active in the History Educator Associations of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia. Since July 2014 over 600 History Educators at Teacher Training Events in all project countries and beyond have been trained, providing feedback on how to further approach sensitive and controversial history by way of innovative didactic approaches, and contributing to existing official and alternative resources, initiatives and networks.

The Educational Resource Book is available in Albanian, Bosnian, Croatian, English, Macedonian, Montenegrin, Serbian, Slovenian. Hard-copy versions are available at request.
