Hawks and Doves – Conflict: How to use the House of European History online resources to create a lesson plan on Conflict?
November 9, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm| €15
Many reasons can bring individuals and groups into confrontation with each other. At the same time, there are things we cannot achieve without others. This workshop will explore dynamics of war and peace. It highlights how Europe today is largely the result of both a history of war, occupation and destruction, and a history of solidarity, negotiation, and reconciliation.
To illustrate these simultaneous opposing and intertwining processes, this workshop will focus on what does it take to make peace. Indeed, news reports and the stories of battles that fill history textbooks should not make us forget that there are, and have always been, people and groups working for a culture of peace. We want students to learn about some of them! The learning outcomes of this workshop will aim to make student understand the contemporary and historical significance of peace activism and to realise that peace is a challenge that requires action to be taken.
Laurence Bragard, Museum Educator in charge of school programming at the House of European History, will present different activities on the theme of conflict that you can use in your classroom. These learning activities are part of the thematic online learning resources available in the 24 official languages of the European Union on the website of the museum.
