How to teach antidiscrimination – workshop for teachers from Slovakia, Poland, Germany
Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual understanding in Europe (PL), Milan Šimečka Foundation (SK) and Anne Frank Zentrum (DE) are getting together to invite teachers from Slovakia, Poland and Germany to the workshop on antidiscrimination education that will take part in Krzyżowa on 23.11 – 26.11.2022.
The workshop methods will be based on the Stories that Move – an online platform with a set of interactive tools for education against discrimination, in the form of multilingual hybrid learning materials (www.storiesthatmove.org). Nine project partners from seven European countries were involved in the development and creation of the Stories that Move platform (2015-18) and continue to work on disseminating the tool in formal and non-formal education.
Antisemitism, racism, homophobia and other forms of discrimination are present in today’s Europe and impact on the lives of young people in all corners of Europe. The Stories that Move online toolkit asks students to think critically about diversity and discrimination, to reflect on their own attitudes and choices, and offers school teachers and non-formal educators a innovative toolkit developed by an experienced team of educators from across Europe. The toolkit consists of ready-made educational pathways combining information, assignments and stories from the lives of people experiencing discrimination. In short videos, young people share their stories, both positive ones and their experiences of exclusion, discrimination and hate crime. These poignant and comprehensible stories are the starting point for an honest exploration of the various issues surrounding discrimination.
The tool’s multilingualism (the website is available in seven languages: Polish, English, German, Hungarian, Ukrainian, Slovak, Dutch) allows the tool to be used with students in foreign language lessons.
Workshop will focus on the methods of diversity education that can be incorporated into the foreign language lessons in schools and on the opportunities and ways to bring the students from the three countries together for the international school exchanges funded by the Polish-German Youth Exchange.
