Living in Diversity - Lesson Plans for Secondary Schools

Council of Europe Publishing, Strasbourg, 2010, 151 pp., ISBN: 978-92-871-6754-5

This handbook was produced in the framework of the pilot project Intercultural and Interfaith Dialogue Through Education, part of the Council of Europe-European Commission joint programme on Fostering a Culture of Human Rrights in South Caucasus and Ukraine (2006-2009). The Council of Europe is strongly committed to the promotion of an cultural perspective in education and has played a major role, not only in the development and promotion of a coherent theoretical reference framework in this field, but also in the development of methodological guidelines and in the production of educational resources that can be used in teaching and training in both formal and non-formal education.

The content of this handbook is based on the proposals for educational activities that were developed by the teachers and trainers from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Ukraine who took part in the project. The activities presented here cover a range of topics associated with intercultural education that correspond to some of the key elements and competences that the Council of Europe considers to be fundamental for intercultural education. The handbook should be seen as a tool for teachers of different subjects who want to integrate an intercultural dimension in their practice. It can also act as a useful resource for teacher trainers in this field.
