This Learning Scenario has been developed by Jean-Christophe Jost as part of the Europeana DSI-4 project.
This learning scenario tackles the "My identity" topic in the middle school curriculum in France, which can also be implemented in any civic education class. It aims to familiarize students with family or personal memories of people, facts, objects or places elsewhere in Europe that they consider as being part of their identity. Students start out with family interviews, and compose an essay based on their interview. These stories are then peer-reviewed. The stories are placed on a European map. Students search for images in the Europeana collections that would support their stories. stories and images are pinned on a map of Europe. The map is exhibited, and stories are displayed in an online dictionary on the school website.
