The results will be published in a booklet, printed by each partner”

  • recommendation from Greek partner to usehttps://bookcreator.com/ which combines text, images, audio and video ( 60 US dollars yearly subscription)/ this way, we can avoid lack of technical equipment and expertise in some schools and create an all-in-one product, which combines both a documentary and leaflet)

Greece: Will be responsible for training, supervising and dissemination of activities. They will be fulfilling the duty of supervisor. An experienced teacher of the Greek school who has taken part in different projects before and with the necessary expertise will be in charge of it. Furthermore, each school has determined a teacher who will be responsible for his own school’s national dissemination activities.

  • reallocation of participants in the mobility to Poland ( 5 students, 2 teachers) C8
  • determine increased number of students/ teachers from Spain to 4 mobilities after the withdrawal of Poland
  • number of students not travelling to Spain for C1( December 2018) considering that all mobilities in the application include students
  • reallocation of responsibilities and activities of the Polish school as put forth in the application, that is: “The Polish team will be responsible for elaborating and distributing, collecting and presenting the results of evaluations” ( responsibility)
  • replacement of C8 activities from Poland with alternative ones from each partner- justification of the viability of the project

Activity 2: history lesson with documentary films display; getting to know two important personalities in our history as a nation and as a local community. Documentary film display ( a history lesson).

Activity 3: visit to the museum of Silesian Uprisings in order to get acquainted with historical events and local community background. We will find out about the reasons for the uprising, their course and outcomes. The museum is an interactive area. During the visit to the museum, students and teachers will learn not only about the history of uprisings but also about the lifestyle of polish people in those times, the culture and specific dialect that Upper Silesians use until present day.

Activity 4: „A city tour with Wojciech Korfanty around Bytom” – a city game, in which teams will walk around the center of Bytom searching the route of local leader of the poll which was to determine if Silesians prefer to belong to Poland or Germany during the years 1919-1921.

Activity 6: An exhibition in municipal library. We will prepare and event, in which students will present their project work outcomes.

Activity 7: Media and emotion workshop, where participants will find out how emotions influence our decisions and how can we influence others depending on our emotions”

  • financial analysis of the withdrawal of Poland ( difference in distance bands for each partner between Poland and Spain- the need or absence of need for a budget readjustment)
  • information given by the coordinator as to what is required by the Spanish National Agency with regard to the Viability/feasibility report and how partners can contribute

  

 

 DAY 3 (12 December 2018, Wednesday) –Partner meeting – Morning session

Issues: ANALYSIS OF THE ROLE OF EMOTIONS AS AN EDUCATIONAL TOOL TO TEACH SOCIAL SCIENCES/ TEACHERS WILL DISCUSS THE BEST STRATEGIES TO WORK THE TOPIC WITH THE PUPILS

 

  • elaborate the ways in which we will work on the topic of the influence of emotions in history/ suggest different methodologies ( Alonso )
  • some hints from the Internet

“The historicization of emotions asks that we view history with an anthropological gaze: that we see the past as a foreign country. This is what makes cultural history particularly well‐suited to the study of emotions”

“Historians could draw on methods from art history or media studies, for instance, to interpret visual displays of feeling; they could draw on psychology and neuroscience to understand the cognitive and embodied dimensions of affect; they could look to the social sciences for insights into the social, cultural, and political aspects of emotion”

“The contemporary history of emotions has only begun to be written, but surely, among other things, it will be a story of how globalization, financial deregulation, economic crises, wars, and growing social inequality gave rise to a mix of anxiety and fear, anger and resentment, fueling a desire for strong leaders who could restore a sense of hope and pride. We have seen similar dynamics before; we should be sensitive to the possibilities as well as the dangers. The passions of the masses are not irrational; they are political. And sometimes, for better or worse, they have the power to change the world” (Johannes Lang, first published: 09 March 2018)

 

  • what is mentioned in the application

“We are going to focus on contemporary history and we will base it on the use of emotion analysis,using it as a teaching tool”

“Introduce new methodologies in History teaching, linking emotions and History, making pupils aware of the factors that influence History, highlighting the importance of human feelings and actions in their societies, discovering the mechanisms which can be used by different powers to influence people’s emotions,giving a transnational approach to the teaching of Social Sciences”

“The immediate participants, teachers and students, will make use of primary sources (government documents, archives, newspapers, movies, newsreels,diaries) and secondary sources (books, period drama films, interviews, documentaries) as well as

oral tradition documenting people’s emotions to the events of the historical periods in question.Emotional analysis of these sources will shed light on the complex forces that generate historical developments in our highly complex, sometimes paradoxical modern societies”
