Communism vs. democracy (EN-CUR-194)
The learning scenario was implemented after several days in which students studied the political regimes in and outside courses, watched documentaries, read books or articles on the proposed theme. It was organized when students finished the study of the chapter Democracy and Totalitarianism in the 20th century. The lesson took the form of a trial debate. Prior to the lesson the students had two weeks to search Historiana and Europeana and find information about how communism and democracy worked in different parts of the world.
The main objective of this learning scenario is to make students discover different aspects of the political regimes and to better understand the impact of a certain political regime on civil society.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
