Handbook for Educators: New Ways for Formal and Non-Formal History Education

A resource book, called “Handbook for Educators: New Ways for Formal and Non-Formal History Education” has just been published in December 2010, as part of the Education for Peace III project.

The handbook especially focuses on the Teacher Training Workshop (“Learning Different Histories: Discussing Alternative Approaches”) held on 19 – 20 March 2010 and the Historian Forum held on 19 July 2010.  Information is provided on the content and subjects studied at the workshops, as well as providing access to resources and references that would be useful tools for educators in the classroom.  In addition, the issues raised and discussed at the Historian Forum, outlined in the handbook, will highlight some of the major obstacles educators face in the teaching of history in Cyprus and as such contribute to the debate of history teaching in Cyprus.
