Sevastopol high school students will start studying with new history textbooks
Starting September 1, 10th-11th grade students of Sevastopol schools will study history using new textbooks, including sections on the Crimean Spring and a special military operation. Funds for the purchase of new state textbooks, teaching aids and methodological materials were allocated with the support of Governor Mikhail Razvozhaev. It is expected that innovations will contribute to the improvement of the educational process.
Systematic work in this direction allows us to maintain and improve the level of quality of education in educational institutions of the city of Sevastopol, and noted. O. Director of the Department of Education and Science of Sevastopol Maxim Krivonos.
Olga Samorodova, a history teacher at the Cossack Bay educational center, said that the volume “History of Russia” for the 10th grade covers the period from 1914 to 1945, and for the 11th grade it covers the events after the end of the Great Patriotic War up to our time. Similar time periods include general history textbooks for grades 10-11. A separate section in the textbook for the 11th grade is devoted to the causes and events of the special military operation in Ukraine. It also explains in detail the causes and process of the entry of new regions into the Russian Federation and the formation of a multipolar world. In addition, the sections devoted to the role of Russia in world politics will be expanded and contain information in accordance with the current geopolitical situation.
According to the teacher, the new textbooks will mark the beginning of the evolution of the educational process in Russia.
The events of the last 30 years in Russia are practically not covered in schools, and young people receive up-to-date information mainly from the Internet. Such sources often contain unreliable information and negatively influence the formation of a civic position. New textbooks are designed to correct this problem. They contain reliable, truthful information, it is systematized and relevant.— said Olga Samorodova.
In addition, the sections dedicated to the NMD will include photographs and quotes from servicemen who took part in the special operation. The teacher believes that the opportunity to convey to his students the words of living eyewitnesses of events will become an important aspect of the educational process. This will allow students not only to get objective first-hand information, but also to get to know the historical context and emotional experiences, history lessons will now become deeper and more interesting.
Another innovation was the special QR codes integrated into the text of the textbooks, with the help of which you can get acquainted with additional materials: thematic feature films and documentaries and the recommended list of literature.
At the moment, only textbooks on the history of Russia have been delivered to Sevastopol, the textbooks on the world history are expected in the near future — after the start of the school year.
In total, about 12,000 textbooks were purchased for Sevastopol high school students. The same number of copies will be distributed among colleges and technical schools.
