UNITS TEACHING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
In this section you will find ten units that have been developed within the project "Teaching to make a difference". These have been created by a team of teacher educators from the Netherlands, England, Hungary, Italy and Portugal. Each of the units will be pilot tested in the autumn of 1999 and spring of 2000. In 2001 they will become the backbone of a European teacher training seminar organized by the European Union.

The majority of the units have been designed in such a way that they can be used directly in a classroom situation. Some, however, more appropriate for teacher trainers. The following units can be found at this level:
UNIT 1:
Intercultural Competence
UNIT 6:
Nationalism
UNIT 2: Erosion of Rights (word)
UNIT 2: Erosion of Rights (ppt.)

The units have been developed in the first place to support teacher training seminars that are organized to support the exhibition "Anne Frank: A History for Today", and to provide further insight into the major themes contained in the exhibition. This exhibition, created by the Anne Frank House, has been shown in more than 30 countries worldwide.

However, teachers will find the units very useful when dealing with issues such as the Holocaust, human rights, multiculturalism and civics. The units have also been designed with the internet in mind, so teachers will find that many of the activities contained in the units encourage students to go on-line. The general approaches underlying the units can be qualified as critical thinking, learning-by-doing, interactional, multi-method and student-centered.
