I changed the Civic Education syllabus completely
My name is Madona Mikeladze. I teach Civic Education to 3rd and 4th year students on the teacher training programme at the Shota Rustaveli Batumi State University in Georgia.
After attending the Summer Academy in Poland, I changed the Civic Education syllabus completely. The literature I brought back with me was a tremendous help - especially Compass and Compasito. I have been working in this way for a year now and the results have been very encouraging – you have only to look at the students’ practical work in schools.
This year for the first time the compulsory certificate examination in Georgia can now be taken by civic education teachers. The Council of Europe manuals have come in useful for this, too.
I am drafting a letter about it to the President of the European Association of History Educators and a report for the President of the Association of History Teachers of Georgia as a way of further sharing my experiences with colleagues.
