Outcomes

The most important outcomes of the project are the following:

- Baseline study: The empirical studies of the baseline study aimed to find out teachers' views and practice in terms of the use of history magazines through a combination of questionnaires and interviews with history teachers in all five of the countries involved. Further research was done regarding history curricula and textbooks in all five partner countries in relation to the aims and focus of the EHISTO project.

- EHISTO analytical framework for the work on popular history magazines: A common analytical tool was developed by the project partners in order to give ideas about how history magazines might be analysed. It is designed to support the self-reliant development of further topics by history teachers and teacher students.

- Teaching and learning objects: The teaching and learning objects are the most important result of the EHISTO project. They are available online, including teacher manuals for the secondary level focused on historical topics that are covered by national magazines and syllabi of all partnering countries ('European History Crossroads'). The materials consist of history- and media-didactically edited content.

- Project seminars for initial teacher training along with a module guide: The module guide for initial teacher training aims at experts in initial teacher training who carry out history seminars about EHISTO related topics, modularised in line with the Bologna Process.

- Final publication: The final publication presents the results of the EHISTO project. The volume offers articles, which for the first time address the phenomenon of popular history magazines in Europe and their mediating strategies. The articles are intended as introductory material for teachers and student teachers.
