In the crucial period of school education, young people often receive incomplete and fragmented information about our planet. Neither are enough for this purpose an article in the newspaper, a conference or a school day on some worldwide issue.
The books in use propose a study of the history very focused on the wars; the majority of secondary schools do not provide for the study of geography and economics are restricted to the analysis of the main theories, devoting little space to the perverse aspects of the ongoing dynamics .
To overcome these limits, we need a new teaching approach that for the 13 years we spent in classroom , make us reason about the world and about the connection between the global and the local, between North and South.
This new teaching is not to be conducted outside of school hours. It is during the time of history, geography, economics that we can learn the facts and acquire tools to interpret them ... but only the curricula of the various subjects and textbooks may help teachers and students.
The project Critical rewies of the disciplines will do this. From 2013 to 2016 it will promote in 6 European countries the renewal of the teaching of history, geography and economics in more than 100 schools. The results will be: interdisciplinary learning experience in schools; documents on new approaches to teaching and a closer relationship between NGOs, schools, universities, educational authorities and publishing houses on the themes of education suited to the global society.
The project “Critical review of the historical and social disciplines for a formal education suited to the global society” - Ref. DCI-NSAED/2012/280-225 is funded by the European Union through the program Europeaid, and enjoys a contribution of the Marche Region
