The Association for Historical Dialogue and Research (AHDR) invites you to the launch of the new publication entitled “Cyprus, A Classroom without Walls: A Teachers’ Guide to Engaging with Significant Sites” which provides support to educators and students of lower and upper secondary schools on their study visits to various sites across Cyprus with historic, cultural, geographical or any other form of significance.
The event will take place on September 21st as part of a series of events for this year’s International Day of Peace. September 21st is observed by the United Nations as the International Day of Peace each year; this year’s theme is “End Racism. Build Peace”.
The educational material consists of two volumes, each including a pedagogic section, a section on Cypriot architecture and lesson plans for each site exploring a diverse range of themes and topics. The lesson plans are designed with activities that can be conducted before, during and after the study visit to the site takes place.
