5. Useful documents and links

Brian Carvell, who some of you remember when he was still with the EEPG working for Nelson Thornes, asked me to distribute this information about the latest project of the history department of the Council of Europe Education divison: a project that relates history teaching to democratic competence, entitled "Educating for Diversity and Democracy: teaching history in contemporary Europe". This project has resulted in the publication of a set of guidelines for history teaching which are downloadable from the Council of Europe's website.

Colin Hughes from Collins - whom I am trying to convince to become a member of the EEPG has shared this video. You might find this useful if you need arguments in your market about the importance of textbooks.

I also wanted to give you the link to the latest Eurydice publications, but this is a message I got several times today


While I am still wondering, what I have to do to fulfil the minimum requirements of the universe I wish you all a good start to 2019. As always, it is a pleasure to work for the EEPG and meet so many wonderful people.
